    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Incredibly comfy. I hardly ever wear them, but occasionally there will be an outfit that calls out for them and they definitely have their place.

    agreed. i have achilles high, low, mid, and bball high but mids are def most comfy. A while ago i wore my light grey mids pretty much every day and they worked with most things in my closet

    Love these boots but "foam sole" makes me nervous. Anyone have experience? I have a pair of Grenson boots with a foam sole and the heel wore out really fast.

    I wear mine all the time and I fucking love them. The ankle support doesn't seem like it would be a big deal but it's very comfortable as Caveat says. Only real issue I have is that they are a bitch to get off when I come home tired, gotta unlace them once or twice usually.

    These look really dope, I could see myself getting them as my winter sneaks. Hopefully someone puts up a fit pic on instagram soon

    Has anyone succeeded in taking the insoles out of their achilles lows? I normally wear orthotics so they're pretty uncomfortable without them, but if getting the insoles out isn't terribly hard I may try it (they seem glued down). Otherwise I may have to just sell them and move on to a different shoe.

    You could always size up and put extra insoles in

    I had an all blue common projects court side. Ended up selling them since it never seems to go well with my wardrobe.

    Picked up a pair of 42 Vintage Lows. I'm a 43 in MMM GATs and 43 in Supergas, so should I be alright, sizing-wise?

    I think sizing is different for everyone - mostly depending on the width of your feet.

    I have wide feet as an example.

    41 in Suede Tournament (no padding)
    42 in Achilies / Vintage (padding)
    42 in GAT's
    7.5G UK in Grenson
    8UK in McNairy/MrHare
    41.5 in Buttero

    How are the vintage suede shoes in person? Deciding between black suede and all black leather.
