    where's the best place to get the Achilles Low in white? Been looking for a size 42 but have had no luck finding anything below retail.

    TIA

    That size is tough to find on sale just like 41. If I were you I'd pick up from Tres Bien Shop which is pretty decent once you discount VAT if you're in the US otherwise, keep trying your luck for sales.

    Thanks for the tip and heads up.

    Will keep an eye on TBS for inventory availability.

    im in canada, best price i got was from TBS with a code in the middle of the season. TBS retail, -VAT - the code was the best price i ever saw on em, so jumped on that, whites either don't go on sale at stores, or odd sizes are left when they do

    MAN, if someone from here kopped the CP Chukkas from Trunk (the size UK 7's in bone or grey) and it doesn't work out, let me know.
    What are people's experiences with the sizing on the Suede Chukkas?
    If I am an overall size 9, would 42 look too big? I would put in an insole if it's only slightly big and that's alright with me.

    I have a pair of Size 10 Chukkas and they're a tad longer than my 43 lows unless 43 = 9.5 in which case, just go with your achilles size.

    I see!
    Thanks for that, I'm actually not sure of my achilles size, but overall the consensus would be I'm a 41.
    Looks like I'll have to wait until it pops up on the market again. [​IMG]

    Chukkas fit a little bigger than the Achilles. I'm in between sizes for Achilles but going down 1 for Chukkas would be perfect.

    For anyone who owns/has handled the CP Combat Boots from this season, how did you size them compared to other CP sneakers and what are your thoughts on them in general? Given the wool lining, I wasn't sure whether to size them the same or size up. Plus I was curious of the leather/crepe sole.

    I appreciate the help.

    I'd go same as your sneaker size, maybe size up from shoes/boots. (In my experience with derbies from a year ago and canvas boots from 2.5 years ago, their boots/shoes fit a little bigger than their sneakers.) I'm happy with my pair. The leather is nice, they seem very sturdy. I'm still getting used to the crepe sole, not used to boots without heels. My only complaint is that I find them a little hard to put on, there's no tab or anything really to grab on to, but I'm getting better at it.

    Thanks for the info. I am not used to boots with no heel either so I was wondering about that myself although they seem they would be pretty comfortable. Doesn't seem the go-to pair for wearing in wet/snow, but good for other weather. A pull tab option would have been a good well though out call.

    From pictures, they seemed to be a nice pair of casual boots to pair with jeans/chinos when I don't feel like wearing sneakers or I'm not wearing my true winter boots.

    They'd definitely work for that.

    I think the lack of pull tab is because they wanted to be very minimal in that area of the boot, no eyelets or speed hooks. All the action is going on with the sole and welt. Unfortunately a bit of a functional drawback.

    @tonio, im going to answer you here for others to be able to read it as well
    i sized the same as my achilles low size, i think their a great boot. wanted a black pair and ended up with brown because i tried them on just for size and couldnt not have them, regardless of the colour

    i've added some pairs to my collection so i'll reference my sizing again, i find achilles low (44) to bit a little long on me, but a 43 is way too tight, so all my achilles are 44, and i can't wear achilles high in a 44 because they are just to big all over, and can't wear them comfortably
    desert boots, rg*cp oxfords, and vintage bball i went with a 43 in all of them, my db's are suede and have much less form they achilles so they aren't tight, and have the perfect length, the oxfords just fit perfectly in a 43, and the bball likewise, being a higher shoe a 44 just didnt work
