    Sizing question ARGH

    I love these shoes but the sizing is so frustrating. Almost ready to pull the trigger on another pair. I tried a 39 and thought it was too snug but over time can any of you vouch for stretch? I have an achilles mid and I feel they are too big =\.

    Could I take it to a shoe store to stretch em? :) Any of you done that?

    Yes you could take them to get them stretched by a cobbler. They will stretch quite a bit through use.

    I wouldn't stretch them. Find the right sizing. The achilles mids are usually one sizing larger than the lows.

    can anyone vouch on the veracity of that claim? Anyone here have a mid and low in the same size achilles or is the low somehow bigger?

    I know most on here are probably sick of all the size questions, so my apologies ahead of time....but for someone who wears a men's US7 in a converse chuck taylor, and a men's US7.5 in pretty much all nike, as well as converse jack purcell; what size do I need to order for the cp original achilles low? I am unsure on wether a 39 or a 40 would be the correct choice? my feet are slightly narrow, narrow-medium would be a good description

    thanks for your help, and again my apologies for another size request.

    I have mids and lows. The mids are roomier, but the same width, so I doubt I could size down.

    I've bought over 12 pairs over the years, and trust me that the mids are larger

    I have both mids and lows. Mids are definitely longer by a tad bit..you can even size down 2 if you want but it might be too narrow.

    so if the mids fit larger-does that mean I can go up 1 on the lows? So if I have a 40 in my black achilles mid-I should get a 40 in the white low?

    I just received the warm grey Premiums and though they're fine length-wise they're a little narrow in the toe-box (in part due to the quite thick leather). Should I expect them to stretch some in the width?

    if you can see your pinky toe bulging, you might want size up.

    haha. Thankfully it's not that bad, just a little tighter than I would like
