    For those who've worn the Geller CP Chelseas for a little while - does the suede material allow stretching at the sides? Looks good but feels a tiny bit tight for me around the toes (width wise). Thanks.

    Jhericurls posted pictures of their off-white pair here:

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/355571/the-official-common-projects-thread/1230#post_8603250

    there are also comments further back that they crack, but would like to see some more feedback and wear photos posted on this forum?

    the gummy is rubberised leather a rubber coating bonded to leather so with wear the two materials will push and pull against each other around stress points which will cause wrinkles and could potentially crack the coating over a longer period of wear. also note that leather cream won't work with a rubberised leather although I'm sure you can still clean them with soap and water.

    Yeah, read the discussion before I posted- in theory they crack but would be interested if anybody has a 2 months+ pair to look at.

    Will probably pass, the way achilles age is a huge part of appeal imo. Dark grey gummy look great brand new, shame they can't seem to get that unified matte colour with the regular materials.

    I'll try to post a photo of mine later, which are a month old. They've quickly become my favorite (even over my white Achilles), and they've held up great. I wear them three or four times a week.

    Curious how people are finding RG x CP side zips in terms of comfort. They always looked to me like they have disproportionately fat shafts. Side profile suggests heel slip is inevitable unless you have cankles.

    wore my winter combat boots for the first time yesterday

    in contrast to what i've said before, they actually felt roomier than my achilles low (both 40s), even with thick socks


    not enough so to warrant sizing down, though

    definitely go with your usual cp size

    the leather is also softer than i thought it'd be too

    GTFan has the same exact sizes as me and did a review of both shoes and he said to size down one. Just checking for affirmation really

    i like his videos, but his sizing advice is all over the place and, as a result, crap

    pretty sure he doesn't know his own size


    for example, he wears an 8/8.5 (depending on the model) in nike but somehow goes all of the way down to a 39 in achilles lows



    edit: though, actually, yeah, don't have personal experience but the general consensus does seem to be to size down 1 from your typical cp size for the bballs

    Hey fam, this is a long shot, but I have a pair of pristine condition Black Mids in 42 that I wore like twice for very short periods of time (dust bag, box, everything). I'd really like to trade them for the exact same shoes in white if anyone is interested.

    I'll be posting some pics in a classified soon, but figured I'd put this out there.

    Why would shoes from the same maker on the same sole vary in size from one upper to the next?
