    One defective pair doesn't mean the quality has gone down

    had a leather pair from ss10 on gumsoles, almost same spot started separating from sole but a glue job was all that was necessary. albeit not 5 wears, more like a year of hard wear including hiking. the soles still looked brand new i got rid of them in the end tho

    obviously this goes without saying. Still, just seeing stuff like this turns me off from considering those tournaments when they were only a 'consideration' to begin with. Really wanted some new editions but since they never seemed to make it past the showroom, I'm being forced to look elsewhere...

    Agree with all of the above.

    Just returned from the store where I bought them and got a refund.Not the best outcome as I bought them on sale for $150 and there were no other shoes to exchange for at such small value - only RRP. Which in Australia, is nuts. May wait for the next MrP/TBS etc sales and snap up a pair at a discount. Or I might be impatient and buy at retail. I wont be buying the tournament low's though. May go for the newer nappa finish or winters.

    Still loving this pair I bought at the same time. Not sure of the name / style but they feel 100x better constructed.

    What is the difference between the normal cps and the premiums? I have a pair of perforated summer archilles which fit ok (wide feet). Is there any difference between the normal archilles, premiums and perforated ones?

    ive ordered from NG. i didn't get charged customs. Although in Australia we only get charged if the total bought amount is over $1000


    premiums have extra padding

    I wish I picked up a pair of the cognac Achilles low from a couple seasons ago, those would be perfect for the fall. Ahhh well, maybe they'll release that color way in the future. Also, I have a pair of CP Achilles Low all white sz 40, unworn, sitting in my closet. If anyone's interested PM me.

    I am still looking for a pair of Bballs in 43 Black, probably my favourite shoe of all time.

    Premium sole is different (thinner). I have the black pair, they're nice.
