    Can anybody tell me what model this is called? They don't look like the Tournaments, and they definitely don't look like Achilles either.

    Not buying any more cp's. Have bought at least a pair or two a year since they first launched, and the leather that they started with and what they currently use is night and day. Very disappointed in the leather on my latest pair. At this point I might has well have bought a pair of pedestrian sneakers.

    I found the Achilles high from this spring to have the best materials I've seen on CPs and I have had pairs from 08, 09 and 10

    Fortunately they're black so it doesn't really show.

    The original achilles leather should be the same shouldn't it?

    I think the shelltoes fit slightly tighter in the toes than the Achilles do. I think I'm going to throw them up for sale, although I think putting 2-3 wears into them would definitely stretch them out enough.

    Alright, I know everyone posts the same damn questions about size conversions.. but I'm looking to grab my first pair of CP. I'm trying to get a pair of Achillies lows, and I'm not sure about the sizing! I'm generally a size 8US in Converse chucks.. which I find to run a little large. I'm an 8.5 to 9 in Vans, depending on the model. What would you say I should go with on a pair of Achillies lows - size 40, 41? I would rather them be a little snug than loose, really, as I'd like to be able to rock them during the summer as well.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated !

    i'm about the same size as you, and wear a 41 with insole. 40 would probably fit lengthwise, but might be too narrow.

    I realize this is a probably a dumb question, but what's the point of the insole?

    Still a bit thrown on the sizing, I've seen some websites that sell CP list the EU size and the US equivalent.. it says the 41 is the equivalent of an 8 US. I've looked up some shoe sizing converters and I've seen like 2-3 different examples of conversion charts, they seem like they all vary a bit. I've found a pair of 41's on sale for a pretty good price, but the guy is claiming that the 41 is comparable to a US 9 because they run big. But from what everyone is saying here, they may run a little long but most people are having troubles with width for the most part. I'm an 8-9 US depending on the shoe, so I guess if i'm trying to avoid any width problems, I should go with the 41..
