    Pardon my ignorance, but what is it about CPs that justify their high price tag? Is the material, the look, the...?

    Jet's right. CP's are worth a high price, but not the $300+ they retail at. EVERY pair of CP's at some point end up on sale. If you see a pair you must have, be patient, wait 2-3 months and I all but guarantee that they will be at least 30% off a few months later, at which point ye sthey are still pricey, but a better buy.

    Guys, I hate to post again so soon but I'm about the pull the trigger on desert boots and I'm having them shipped across the globe, so I want to know if going down the suggested one size results in reduced space in the toe box as I'm wide at the toes and will be uncomfortable squeezing into something narrow at the front.

    Thanks!

    I can unequivocally confirm that going down a size will most certainly result in reduced space in the toe box. That would be true of all shoes, CP or not, as long as they are not shaped like perfect rectangles.

    But are they narrow to start? Hard to say by the pictures.

    I have semi-sort-of-wide feet and go tts in all CP's. Fit is fine, shoes are comfy as hell.

    Caliroots have re-stocked on some of the sale items. namely 5-hole slip-ons, cap toe, nylon achilles and desert boots...

    I normally wear sz 13 (nike, sperry) but I wear a sz 12 in Clarks, certain dress shoes.

    Do CP shoes run big ? Would a sz 45 in CP fit me ?

    Any help is appreciated.

    ^ Don't have any Sperry shoes, but I wear the same size in everything you just listed and wear a 46. For Achilles, anyway. Don't own anything else.

    I wear a US 13 in Nikes and a 45 Achilles. They're a bit snug at first, but they will stretch and are now some of the most comfortable sneakers I own.
