1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    From what I recall when I ordered the olive army sneakers a few weeks back, VAT is deducted when processing through Paypal.

    Any sizing advice? I am a 12 in most sneakers but this varies between a 45 to 46 in various brands.

    Look in the need supply thread.
    There's a monthly code for 10 or 15%.

    I understand but the math doesn't work out.

    They recommend going down a size. I'm a US 10D and their size 42 fits me perfect.

    Thanks. How do they compare in quality / fit to the CP Achilles? (I'm a 43 in CP so presumably I would get the same size for these?)
    Tempted giving the black pair a go as an alternative at that price.

    Seems like they seem to be very similar from this review. Also, they use the same margom sole so they should have the same sizing. Also applies to the gustin low top where it also uses the margom sole and has the same sizing.

    Nah quality doesn't compare. It looks similar, and would seem similar on paper, but having gotten a pair (about 2 years ago) for $125, I would have paid about $100 more for Achilles (sale price of course). The leather quality for Svenssons isn't something to write home about. Vastly sub-par to the butteriness of CPs
    Yeah, it's Made in Italy and has a Margom sole, but if I've ever learned anything from years of buying jawns is to always go for the real deal.
    Would not buy Svenssons again.

    I've never owned a CP Achilles so I can't compare but the Svensson is comfortable and worth the money.

    sneakersnstuff has 25% off if you buy two sale items. Aged Stan Smifs come out to $158 if you buy two. Most sizes in white are gone.

    Huh, that's interesting. Quite a shame I guess. Once again my wait for the real thing continues.
