    I might have a very strange question for which I could not find any answer, so I decided to ask it here.

    How do your feet smell usually after a day of wearing CP? I am currently using Geox and quite frankly have no problem with feet smell after a day even in the current heat and humidity. However, I cannot like any of their current models and want something simple and classic like the tan version in the current CP collection. I wear only cotton or only merino socks. I am afraid that CP being leather, I might end up smelling like when I wore adidas snickers.

    Does anyone here own a pair of arctic boots? I'm buying a pair off another user here, just want to know the best way to look after the leather. Will be my first pair of common projects, so not familiar on their leather. Can I chuck some obenaufs or filsons oil on them?

    Zero smell associated with mine and I wear my lows barefoot all the time, plus I sweat a lot. In fact, I think the leather helps, not hinders. Not sure if I can go back to canvas lined kicks...

    Need sizing info, couldn't find anything with a quick search. Do the CP derbies fit any differently from the sneakers? Do they tend to run, even a tiny bit, small or large? How comfortable are they?

    Hey everyone, I am thinking of picking up a pair of the leather rec shoes. Do they fit about the same size-wise as the Achilles? Also, is the general consensus that they are comfortable? I haven't been able to find many comments on them. Thanks!

    They have the thinner sole and I am sure I read that they taper off more as a result.

    Therefore i'd say buy them TTS, not sized down.

    Do CPs come in half sizes? 39 is too tight while 40 is long. The pains of having wide feet :(

    I have the wedge derbies from last year. They fit a size smaller than my Achilles (so true to size then).

    Can anyone please help me find (pic below) the black/white achilles low winter model from last year in size 42. I would also appreciate a heads up on the cheapest place to find the all white pair, it seems I'm always one step late to the sales.

    Hi Golf - I have a pair of the black ones in that size that I've been wondering what to do with as I never wear them. I think they've been worn about three times and are in almost mint condition. The bottom of the soles are a bit darkened with dust/dirt etc but I can wash that out. No box. If you're interested does $200 + postage sound reasonable? I'm in the UK..London.

    This kind of stuff really belongs in a PM. Otherwise there will be a whole waterfall of people advertising their shoes in this thread :(

    I don't know if you mean the completely black ones, or the black ones with the white soles, but the latter is on sale at Ssense. extra 20% off today on sale items, too.

    Has there been any new news on Common Projects' supposed new line, that would be cheaper than their mainline?
