    $15 isnt a game changer in a purchase like this, however over $100 is.

    Well, the CAD means that the price you're looking at is canadian dollars, although that price still doesn't make sense because the exchange is only something like .96 now. :puzzled:

    It could be that you choose Canadian dollar? Perhaps in the price is included shipping and other fees
    The $570 is with US dollar

    question about last seasons washed silver CP's. I just bought them in a size 41 (went one size down as suggested) and these bitches are tight. its extremely tight around the toebox. Do these washed trainers fit like all other CP's or should I be going TTS in my case? also do courts fit like achillies-- I've heard they have a wider toebox? If that's the case would the rule of "one size down hold?"

    Cheers

    For some reason the washed leather feel really snug when you buy your normal CP size. I am sized perfectly at a 41 in achille lows and I remember the washed browns feeling really tight. I would say a good rule for the washed is if you're pushing your normal CP size in achilles, then go ahead and size up in washed. If you have a little bit of room in your achilles and aren't maxing out the length (edit; and width), stick with your normal size for washed. I think it is because the tongue is thicker than on the traditionals. In looking at the shoe it is important to the design, but a real pain in the ass when you've owned a lot of CP's and they throw that curve ball with no warning in the description. Maybe try swapping out the rounded laces for the normal flat laces if you have an extra set to reduce a smidget of extra pressure pushing down on the tongue and thus your foot. That may be a long shot though. Good luck.

    The prices are higher if you're browsing within Canada. Based on where you browse (ie. USA or any other International country) the currency will be in US dollars and the prices will be lower.
    (If you don't believe me, try browsing ssense with a proxy server and you'll get the same prices as our American counterparts)
    The reason for this is Ssense includes the customs/tariffs on the goods that are made in other countries (extra 18%) and mark up the price for the small market and demand there is in Canada.

    Therefore, all you lucky people outside of Canada have lower prices.

    Thanks mate.

    Would you say the unwashed achilles are considerably roomier? These are actually my first Cp's.

    N/p man-

    If you can get the 41 washed achilles on your foot and walk around and consider them to be 'pretty tight, but wearable' (as I was) I would say you would be fine in 41 for regular achilles. If your washed in size 41 are too tight, to the point of wanting to return them, then I would say your best bet moving forward for the vast majority of CP models, including the regular achilles, is a size 42. I would venture to say that normal CPs will feel almost a half size larger than the washed leather.

    edit; weird sizing comparisons/advice above, but hopefully it makes sense to you

    I find 100% of the above to be spot-on advice, from first-hand experience.

    My washed felt tighter as well. I'm a 42 in CP with just about no room for wiggle. I actually broke my 42's in nicely. IMO the washed has a some more give in stretching. The gum sole seems to give more as does the washed leather. Mine broke in pretty quick in my normal CP size. I do recognize the extra tightness, though.

    43, maybe a 42.

    I wear a 11 in most sneakers, Chucks, Nike's, etc and am a 44 in CP's. I have one pair of CP's in a 43 and they are a bit tight. Not too short, but tight around the foot. Hope that helps.

    If you are a 10 in dress shoes and on a proper foot measuring device (Brannock), you are definitely a 43. If you are a 10 in sneakers such as Nike, you might be a 42.

    I'm slightly over a 9 on the Brannock, I wear 9 in most dress shoes, 8.5 Alden Trubalance, 8.5 Wolverine 1K mile, 9 Converse Chucks - but the kicker is I'm a 10 in Nike Free and many other main stream trainers/sneakers.

    A lot of people who have never bought shoes other than sneakers may think they are a bigger size than they actually are.

    So, anyway, measure your foot, or take it from my sizing advice. If you are a true 10 measured, you are for sure a 43. No way anyone with feet bigger than mine could fit in a 42, and I'm a measured 9, if not slightly over. If you are a 10 in brands like Nike, you might be a 42.
