    Anyone know where I might find a pair of low white achilles with some kind of rebate/discount code offer?

    yeah, but it seems that filling out shipping/billing address is required before I can complete checkout and my country is not listed in the drop down menu, but it's listed on the list of shipping rates :confused: any way to get around it? thanks!

    Endclothing is notorious for getting hit by duties/customs fees too so take that into account.

    Not to mention notoriously poor customer service. Literally one of two places I've been burned since about 1998, personally. And I've shopped at, literally, hundreds of stores.

    And other stores aren't? Do they underprice the invoice or something? Depends on the buyer's country I guess because I got hit when I purchased from TBS albeit very small amount.

    I'm looking to guy my first pair of CP's, and I've spent two weeks going back and forth on which ones to buy. Hoping you guys will have some thoughts on which you think are the most versatile, comfortable, and, well, best (I'm looking for opinions!). I'm looking at three right now:

    1. The original Achilles low white

    2. The Achilles mesh low white

    3. The Achilles gum low gray

    If it matters, I plan to buy from Tres Bien.

    i'd go with white. more versatile IMO than 3, and id rather the original than the mesh. ironically i wear my white the least, i wear black more often, but with your options id say 1.

    That's helpful, thank you. I tried on the 45s in the gray suede, and they fit pretty well (slightly large, but the 44s were too snug). Do you know if the originals fit the same as the suede?

    White is a bit more versatile at least for me because it matches with 90% of my outfit color scheme. And I reckon many people are the same.

    i dont have any suede achilles, but from what i've read on SF it should be the same, people sometimes adjust sizing with the premium achilles. i had the same issue with sizing but a size down, 44 is a bit too long, but 43 is too tight so i went with 44 for my achilles. some models i went to 43 though since they arent as narrow

    Do any of you have the white mesh lows? Do you like them as much as the originals? The latter are sold out in my size, but the mesh look interesting too.
