I think this is official CP thread. Will post my question there too. :)

I ordered my first pair of CPs lows week ago. I'm something in between 41 and 42 in EU sizes with normal width, so I bought size 40 following a size down rule. Sneakers were good in length painfully narrow to the point when even loosed laces are quite short and every move in them was what I imagine Julia from Hellraiser 2 felt (see picture 1). Returned them and sized up for 41. They are more comfortable but a bit loose (have some heel slippage) and a bit long (good 2 cm free room from toe to end of the shoe, not sure if qualify as clown shoes, please see picture 2). They also squeak, so I try to break them in right now, but not sure how long does it take to break them in. This squeaking really annoys me. Due to a small bit loose fitting I thought about insole or thicker socks for winter. Thought about returning them, but to my surprise both Wings+Horns and Svensson use same sole as CPs, so no matter which alternative I choose fit wouldn't be right. And I dig dem gold numbers.

What should I do? Switch back to 40 or keep 41? I heard smaller size eventually streches out, but as narrow as it was I was afraid it wouldn't help me much. And silhouette would be ruined. 41 with insole should fit pretty well if this annoying squeak will go away after break in, will need to live with length I guess (if they aren't clown shoes as I think all the time). I'm 175 cm in height for record (yeah, manlet :( ).

Size 41 (sorry for ugly black sock, wear them at home trying to break in):

My W+H are wider in same size even with the same sole. Ive heard the same from others.

Oh, that sounds good. They look really good and I think if your words are true they are good alternative for me. Which size would you recommend me to get? 40 or 41? Wear 42 in Vans, but they have some free room. Normally wear 41-42 (I guess I'm in between).

my 45s are very narrow when I first get them but I just put a shoe stretcher in them for like 24 hrs concentrating on tight spots and they are perfect when done

The white achilles are extremely popular and pretty much never on sale.

especially if you are a common size. the best i've found to semi-regularly obtain is from Tres Bien Shop with one of their codes. if you are in the usa the exchange rate makes it a better buy than local shops
