    I suppose they did the BBalls for fall instead.
    There are red and green suede vintage highs for next spring

    IMO classic bballs are infinitely superior to achilles hi's. I have the all grey hi's from ss10, they're nice but I've kinda gotten bored of them. still can't believe they fucked up the new bballs. :foo:

    I actually hated the new BBalls too but the white ones have grown on me big time. Been looking for OG BBalls for a long time and have never seen them on the bay, here, SuFu etc in a 45. So, I copped from TBS. Can't wait to be wearing them. I thought the vintage sole sucked but upon seeing worn in pairs of the OG whites, they seem to go that dirty colour anyways... Also copped a pair of Achilles Mid in black.

    I second this. The moment I heard that line on Niggas in Paris, I jizzed and wanted to put it on SF.

    so this is possibly an irritating newcomer question, but i just got my achilles low (classics). i sized down one, which was definitely the right call in terms of length. however they are fairly snug almost to the point of being uncomfortable. is this normal? i assume, being soft-ish, the leather will 'give' a little with wear?

    I wear a size 41 and they're snug, but not uncomfortable, and never were. I do have to wear socks on the thinner side, though. If I were to size up to a 42 I know for fact they'd be too big.

    I think it sounds like yours may be too snug in the width department? If so, you may have to sacrifice the good fit in length and size up to accommodate a better fitting width. I have had one pair of all black achilles that were pretty stretched out (bought in after market), but for CP's I've owned from day 1, which is a few, stretch has been minimal in my personal experience. Good luck
