I would go 43 in the training boot. I'm the same size as you, and i sized down
I bought a pair of Achilles "Premium" a few days ago.
Well, I saw the model only on the web, in Très Bien Shop, and it looked superb !
Finally... I was disapointed. The sneakers looks so big on foot, not very nice... only the profile is fine for me. Anyway, I send back the pair and I will be refund.
Today I tried a simple Achilles model and... I find it far better !
Pics of the Premium model I took :

See ? The profile is perfect but from above...
Well, may be it's me... I am little strange sometimes, about sneakers... Anyway I prefer the normal Achilles !
It was my modest review, hope it can help !
i think they look good in those pics
Well yeah it's quite good here but I assure you that from the above it is too big / not nice at all.
would like to find the officer's combat in a 46
They look fine to me too. Not digging the extra leather trim but if anything, they actually make the sole look bigger and the upper smaller.
Just took a look at the tan ones and the white ones both premium. Shipped them off this afternoon. I gotta say, the leather and cushioning is WAAAYYY better on the premium ones that I felt like I really wanted to keep them. I also like how the inner leather lining is brown, looks really nice contrasted with the white outer (even tho its a detail that won't be seen unless you take them off). Overall, these look really nice and I would rather get premium ones over the regular ones PROVIDED the price is not much higher.
What do you mean by the leather is better? Thicker?
the original ones look better... compare them irl. so much simpler, looks much nicer.
The premium achilles are more for colder weather.. the leather is thicker and softer, and keeps my feet warmer.. another nice addition that's often overlooked is the suede heel (inside) to prevent slippage.
they have them at gravitypope saw them yesterday, 650$. (black)
sienna for $500
I think the same now I tried both
Anyone know how the combat boot fits? 40 in the old training boot was too small for me. I'm wonder if they fit the same? If they do, I'm sad that I didn't get them from revolve when they were $350.
