    I think they run big (or slightly narrow in the toe box?) for me... got 43 in shell toe highs but 44 in Achilles.... i dunno. :puzzled:

    sorry Frenchy... I ordered them once a size too large (44 and returned) b/c I knew 43 in Achilles were too small for me... but turns out the shell toes were fine. FYI... i believe the ankle opening/area is cut a bit roomy, at least for me. They fit well in the toe and foot bed but are still slightly large around the ankle. Hope that "helps" LOL

    sorry.... I got 43's in the highs.... good foot fit; a bit larger around the ankle, but went to 44's in Achilles... not sure if anyone else has had similar findings.

    Do they make the achilles low in black with white soles? Can't seem to find a pair...

    Ahh too bad, I wear mine more than any other of my CP's. Looks like Kid Nickles posted a good option. Not sure if you can find'em though. Maybe we'll see some pop up in S/S 12.

    Hello,

    Did you take the same size for the original achilles?
    Do they fit the same as the premium?
    If I am OK with 41 original achilles should I go the same for the premium ones?

    Regards

    What do you (or anyone else) wear the all black mids with? Have any fit pics? Mine are just sitting in my closet.
