    Got my mid court whites in 44 today and they seem to fit fine. I wear 10.5 in converses and generally wear size 11s.

    Does anyone have any advice on how to make it easier to put these shoes on? They were laced already and its too snug for my to just put my feet in, and I can't loosen up the laces enough without making the remnants too short to tie the laces.

    HALP.

    To the guy who can't put his shoes on.

    Lace them normally. It helps a lot.

    I can't even fit my foot in the shoe if I lace it normally, as in how it came already in the box (all tied-up). And I thought I had narrow feet.. this takes it to a whole new level lol.

    Surprisingly my sneakers came today (expected a monday arrival). I originally was told achilles mid but received the mid courts (fine by me). I also received the black court lows and the patent black achilles low all at 41. The 41 courts felt pretty good (almost a little large as I had to readjust the laces to tighten them a little. I can see what people mean regarding the achilles though. They definately felt at least 1/2 size smaller in the length and width (compared both feet and different styles to confirm). Not painful but a little tight. Somebody posted the patents don't stretch as much as the courts but they are not tight enough to be painful (no blisters I hope) but I posted just as an observation. My patents also said display model on the bottom though they looked flawless. The packaging on the other hand could have been better. I had a huge box (could have fit 6 boxes of shoes) with the 3 pairs inside. None of the boxes were tied down and one box opened up during transit so the shoes were floating in the wrapping paper (not much there so I was not quite sure why they even bothered). Also, one of my pairs was missing the dustbag (the opened one so maybe they cannabalized mine to give to someone with a single order?) though these dustbags are not exactly high quality. My JV Chucks came with better dustbags and don't even mention my Y3's! The shoes were extremetly nice (the patents were cool). Not sure if I would pay full retail on these things but definately worth the price I paid. I've got slightly narrow feet and definately not flat footed so no problem fitting the shoes with my feet (wear 8.5 chucks and 9 in adidas/puma/nike) unlike the poster above.

    Part of the discomfort from the Achilles patents lies in the weird way the leather creases, which could cause a slight pinching near the toe. In my experience, it doesn't last too long.

    I do the same with my socks...I also use them to hold shoes/sneakers when I travel (keeps my clothes from getting dirty from the soles). It is also a good place to separate the dirty underwear and socks from each other in the suitcase so I wouldn't throw those things away right away!
