    They are full of crap. Durable and nice looking, they are. Construction-wise, as good as any designer sneaker out there (so, better than your typical $100-$150 "Streetwear sneaker") But a dress shoe they are not.

    I wore my white achilles without care (meaning to concerts, festivals, in the rain, to clubs, etc) since February and I would say they are pretty much destroyed at this point.

    I've worn my white CP lows for about a year now to just about everywhere I went, and besides scuff marks, they look great. I'd say they can easily last over 2 years if you take care of them.

    by destroyed do you mean they look like shit or they're becoming unwearable? If the latter, mind explaining?

    They just look like shit. I still wear the fuck out of them, but the leather has scratches all over it, the white stitching is brown, and no matter how hard I try to clean them, they look beat.

    uh.. months to years depending on how you treat them.

    look at cps like nikes, not like a dress shoe

    I think you have to be really wealthy to be able to justify wearing expensive shoes to concerts and such. Of course they are going to get destroyed, and nobody will see them anyway, so what's the point? I know when you buy clothes, you should wear them and not hang them on the wall, but get some beater shoes for nasty places where you are sloshing around in spilt beer and cigarette butts with everyone stepping on them. Wearing CPs to those kind of venues is just burning money.

    ^ Do the soles yellow over time or are those vintage achilles?
