I wear an 11 in most sport shoe brands puma, adidas, sometimes 11.5 in nike but usually a 11. In springcourt I wear a 44/11. Should I get a 44 or 45 in CP Achilles mid? for some reason they list a 44 as a 10.5 and a 45 as an 11 but I believe it should be 44/11 45/12, anyways I am guessing I should go with the 44 since I have heard these run a tad large?

If you have wide feet, i'd go up one. Otherwise, buy same size as other shoes = 44.

I wear a 44 in Springcourts and a 43 in Common Projects, if that helps. The 44 in Springcourts is shorter heel to toe, but wider, than the 43 in Common Projects. In lots of designer sneakers, I find that I have to size down 1 (from an 11).

Well I ordered a 44 in the CP's hopefully they work. I have the CP suede desert boot in 44 and it works fine but I heard that the achilles run a tad larger in length but a bit more narrow... after buying the desert boots I am know oficially hooked, shoes are amazing! Also just picked up some Clae McQueens in grey suede after someone on here recommended them, I am interested in seeing them in person.

I have 5 pairs of CPs and I've noticed some of their styles fit differently, also depending on which year the release is from, I hear they tweaked their sizing between years. It's a bit hit and miss. I wear a US 11 in Nike runners and nearly all other shoes, and my feet are normal width.

This is how various CP models fit me:

Achilles Low White (2009) - 44
Achilles Low Black (2009) - 44
Achilles Low Shell Toe (2009) - 43
Achilles Mid with Cap Toe (2010) - 43
Court Shoe White (2009) - 43

I'd say a 44. I'm a 7.5 on a brannock, and when I order dress shoes. I wear a 40 in a mid achilles pair I have from 3 years ago, and I can actually make them fit loose depending on how tight I do the laces. If you're in between sizes in CP's, I'd recommend going for the lower size unless you're an E width.

I wear a 8 in chuck taylors and 8.5 in mostly everything else (note: my feet are neither narrow or wide), my achilles are a 40 and they are slightly tight, wearable but not the ideal fit. (probably a 41 for me would be ideal), since you're 3 sizes bigger than I am, probably a 44 (though a 43 MIGHT work)

Sorry guys. Didn't notice the date. Don't despair, I'm sure worse things have happened. Maybe it will still help someone who is searching for CP size info.
