    Ya I don't dislike the brown... was just trying to think of some options that might add a little personal, unique flair to them... I have an extra pair of round, grey laces I might try just for the hell of it to see how they look. Thanks tho'.... today was only the 2nd time I've worm 'em... I'm liking them too! :fonz:

    Does anyone else have a problem with the tongue of their CPs moving to one side?

    Those shell toes are really great. They look really sleek worn. Kind of want a pair.

    This happens to me on every pair of sneakers, but only on my right foot

    Here's my CP collection:

    Training Boot (olive/leather), BBall (white/leather), Tournament (black/canvas), Achilles Mid (black/leather), Desert Boot (tan/suede), Tournament Velcro (white/perforated leather) and not pictured; Achilles Low (grey/leather). All size 45 and all fit exactly the same. Haven't had a chance to try on the washed versions though. Has anyone got a pair of the grey suede BBalls?

    Hate to point out stuff like this, but these look too big to me. If the next size down is too narrow I might at least suggest an insole or half insole to help fill out the ankle better.
    Better to realize now rather than later.
    Could just be the awkward pics but looks goofy

    Also, looks like they could use a relacing, is that the way they came?

    actually I tried on 42 but they were too small and I did in fact just buy an extra thin insole to put in them but I was so eager to try them out I hadn't done so yet. They actually fit fine but I know what you mean about the ankle....I think w/ the insole they'll be ok. I took those pix very quickly and at a weird angle so I think that has at least a bit to do w/ them looking a little goofy. And ya those are the original laces... I've only had them for about 5 days. Do they look old or something? What made you suggest relacing? Just curious. I was considering a different color lace... dark grey, black? Whataya think?

    Nothing wrong with the laces, but if they are laced like this:
    http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/shoeshoplacing.htm
    then I would suggest redoing it to one of these
    http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/sawtoothlacing.htm they might already be like this, can't really tell
    http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/straightbarlacing.htm
    http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/straighteuropeanlacing.htm
    or even
    http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/crisscrosslacing.htm might look good since they are basically Chucks.

    I think any of them help the fit and give you more control over tightening and loosening and easier to put on/take off.
    I'll admit that I am rather obsessive/weird about these types of things.

    if i'm a 9/9.5 ...should i go with a size 8 or 9 in the common projects achilles, they look like they have irregular sizing like converses. I'm also lookin at a pair of twins for peace which look to have the same sizing

    ^for anyone who owns common projects achilles or shoes similar btw

    If you are a size 9.5 on the Brannock device, a size 42 in the Achilles would be your best bet. CPs run long and narrow.

    so then achilles are never perfect for the length but only for width?

    Pretty much..

    Mine are just a bit long, but they're snug width wise. They feel great though, really comfortable.

    Seattlesf just got a week off. We'll hear from him Christmas Eve. Look people, when I say "Excuse me, kindly do not use the main SW&D forum as the B&S forum," I expect you to listen. It's soooooooooooo easy.

    In related news, loving my new black shelltoe highs with the laces switched out for white ones. Dunno who had issues with their leather, but mine are buttery soft, but thick.

    I'm assuming you mean 9/9.5 in sneakers like nike since you're saying chucks are sized weird. Go get your feet measured on a brannock (any shoe retailer). If you're 8/8.5 on a brannock take a 41.
