    Damn... I have a TINY bit of room. Any other thoughts? [​IMG]

    It seems like you're looking for the answer you want, so I'll bite. I'm a rare 42 in CP, 43 in MMM. Not sure why, because I don't think I have particularly odd feet, the 42 in CP just fit much better than a 43. It's important to note that like you said, most are 43mmm/42cp, so you're taking a risk going for it

    Haha...yes. I've always found ingelmos to be overpriced and not that nice looking. I'm tempted by these those.

    i bought my dad a pair of the light blue lows last year(on clearance) and he loves them. we wear the same size so i might sneak em out in the summer when hes not looking[​IMG] im not keen on the scripted logo right on the side but from afar its unnoticeable. quality is good, leather is soft. for clearance it might be worth a shot.. edit: these dont have his name on the side like the lows, thats a plus

    This is a much better colorway of the Balenciaga low-tops than the other one, I might cop for spring/summer if I find it in-store. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    im a 42 in cp's and dont seem to have room in them and they fit fine. im a true 9 on brannock. i tried on 42s in GATs at barney's and they fit perfectly. so maybe its the models of each brand that are making the sizing inconsistent

    Black and brown Balenciagas look pretty good.

    do sneakers with the plim soles like the ysl rollings and cp training boots actually have a thinner sole than sneakers like achillies? Or does it just appear that way because it is stiched lower on the leather upper?

    soles on the ysl rollings looks like it'll wear through fast

    YSL Rollins definitely has thinner soles, I am not sure about the training boot-sneakers though, it looks like it would be thinner as well. To me, my YSL doesn't really wear out faster than my other sneakers but then again I have a good number in rotation.

    Speaking of the cp training boots, are new ones being released this season? I want a pair.
