    fuck! i already ordered 43. the revolve clothing website listed 43 as 9.5. when i checked it last week but wasnt finished looking then the week after i came back to buy it, it was gone. then i found the 43 from a site called La Carconne. (they dont have 42 at all.)

    how bad is it gonna be? (ive never worn common projects before) i remember when i bought those in 9.5 (store)

    it was narrow shoe and kinda fit quite tight at first but now its stretched out and fits fine.

    i dunno man, they are narrow shoes.
    i am a UK 8.5 and bought a 42, but have wide feet and the bones of my foot were straining at the sides, so i sized up to 43. YMMV of course. If it's a bit big though you can always use an insole, i'd rather that than endure weeks of discomfort in the hope that they'll stretch out.

    Your milage may vary.

    I have been wearing a 43 in achilles, but I've found they slip a little so I took a chance on the 42 in the winter premium black. If they don't work out maybe we can switch, or I'll sell you mine if you return yours.

    Damn wasn't really wanting to buy something but I got excited when I first saw them and that's my size and I was sad this morning when they were all gone from ssense.

    thanks for the heads up

    Maybe you misunderstood me. I don't have them yet. I just ordered them in a 42. I won't be back in the US till XMas to try them on though, so don't wait on me. Just throwing it out there in case you need a 42 and can't find them by then. I'm pretty sure I'm a 42.5 :(

    I bought the tan. Hope it works out. I've seen the black up close, and it looks great.

    Just bought a pair of white achilles lows. Should I treat the leather with anything before I start wearing them?

    EDIT: Didn't realize this was the wrong thread, as they're this season's achilles. Not like that changes anything about the question.

    I personally don't bother. Just wear it normally, watch it dirty up / soften + crease over time. They're sneakers.
