    hello fellow SF members,

    Looking to purchase my very first pair of cp vintage lows. If I normally wear size 9-9.5 in regular sneakers, what size would be appropriate for me in EU? 41? 42?

    41. I wear a US10 and 42 fits me well.

    I definitely think you should go 42. I'm the same size as you and wear 42...I can wear 41, but they're tight.

    9 = 42.. i'm a 10 and 43 fits me, although tight at first.. usually takes a while to break in. I usually go for 44 though as I like a little room.

    So ive been wearing my achilles mid black for a while and find that they have stretched. :(!!!!!!! So I was thinking of using the paper method by jamming some soft paper inside my shoe at the front to make them fit better.

    Based on what I've read and my own assumptions, shouldnt stuffing paper in your shoes prevent the creasing at the front and prevent the shoes from curving up too much? Does anyone do this with their leather shoes?

    Also for anyone who has the chukkas, do they stretch after a while? Im thinking about copping a pair

    i think there are pads you can stick under the tongue instead of jamming paper in your shoe everytime you wear them.

    Just ordered a pair of those svenssons in 42. $120 shipped seems like too good of a price to pass up. They seriously look exactly the same as CPs... couldn't find more info though.

    CP Achilles low in white seem to be OOS everywhere anyway. Finally some new shoes :D

    These were the only pics I could find of the lows (from RP thread):

    In which case, they look pretty good to me for $120. Definitely chunkier, but not bad at all for almost 1/3 of the retail price for CPs.

    I didn't say they were a bad value, just that they're not exactly like CPs. I got my CPs on sale for $200, so I'm happier with them. If I had to pay the 380 whatever crazy price for them, I'd definitely give the svensons some serious thought.

    Are you talking from experience or referring to the picture?

    Like I said, I couldn't find much info on them but the price was good enough for me to try.
