But I'm willing to bet there's no real difference between the waterproofing sprays...

im not sure, might have silicone? either way it does not have a description like the saphire invulner waterproof spray.

Received a pair of Chelseas and they fit so much smaller than the Achilles. Do they stretch eventually?
post #678 of 1400
Not really. I wear the chelseas in a 45 and everything else in a 44.

Which pair of Achilles do you have? I noticed different aAchilles fit differently ie retro / premiums. I don't have any personal experience, just what I have read

Retros fit a little bigger. More like Bballs. I have premiums and retro's and still wear a 44 in both, the retro's are just more comfortable.

I'm a 12 on the Brannock and basically all Nike. Occasionally I'll take an 11.5.

Ah so you're saying the Chelseas are even slimmer than Achilles, forcing you a size up?

Also would you consider yourself to have wide or slightly wide feet?

post #685 of 1400
Yeah pretty much. The toe is a little more pointed and less round on the Chelsea than the Achilles.
I consider myself to have normal width feet (but long ass toes which means that my pinky toe gets squashed in shoes with narrow toe boxes).
Size 44 fit perfect length wise in all CP's, but they are tight in the toe on Achilles and chelseas. The Achilles stretch out enough to work, but not the Chelsea for some reason.
I generally prefer shoes to be a little snug than too long, but I couldn't make the 44's work in the chelseas (I have an older pair of the chelseas from 4-5 years ago in a 44 that fit well but the shape is much slimmer now). I had initially bought the tan from last summer in a 44 and they never got comfortable so I bought a 45 and just put a half insole in and they are fine.
Like all Cp's (and shoes in general I guess) it depends on how you prefer your shoes to fit. If you prefer more room or a tight fit or whatever.

I was in the Mr Hare Store this week and they have some wonderfull Italian made Buffaliano sneakers called STANG. The beauty of these is that they are hand painted so have a really deep rich colour and individual patina.

They come in grey, navy and tan and there is also a high-top version with a velcro strap fastening in the same colours. They fit TTS and the quality is superb, £260 for the sneaker and £280 for the high top. Think I am going to pick up a pair in Navy.

Hey guys -any recommendations for how to get denim stains off my white leather CPs Achilles? Thank you. Thinking of getting some neutral leather shoe polish at my local shoe shop (ie no colour) but let me know if something else is recommended.

(Hoping the answer isn't necessarily buy another pair...)

Sorry for another Chelsea sizing question. I usually wear 7-7.5 in sneakers and 6.5 in dress shoes. I have short but wide feet. 39 Achilles were too long and the 38 length was ok but too narrow, with my pinky toes getting smashed. What size should I go for in the Chelsea boots, or should I stay away altogether? I'm reading they're even more narrow than the Achilles?

They're narrower in the toe box area. Get a 39.

Jason Markk should do the trick.
