Discussion of the fall collection of one of SF's more popular brands.

Models that caught my eye from End's current collection of F/W '13:











Sizing matrix for CP Achilles by computurd:




A slight caveat to the chart; I would change the right-most category to: "Normal/Wide Feet", leaving the left-most "Narrow."

Link to CP Olivier's PinInterest, with useful categories: FW '13; SS '13; FW '12

Particularly hoping the rarer models, stuff that not every stockist carries, is posted to this thread.

I really like those suede Achiles. Don't know if I $350 like them though. Still don't own any CP so I guess we'll see what they release.

The Corner has their F/W '13 stock up.

Liked these off the bat:




Thoughts: Have not yet witnessed the return of the Winter Premium thinner sole. I hope we do see that, as I really liked that addition; it changes the profile of the Achilles to be quite a bit sleeker.

Wondering if the color of the "Burgundy" S/S derby is any different from the "Maroon" F/W one.

Do the derbys fit like the achilles lows or larger/smaller?

Not sure if this has been mentioned before but you can get Revolve to price match the prices on Tres Bien (non vat). So it's close to $100 off most styles plus free 2-day shipping.
It's not a sale price, but if you don't want to wait then at least you can cop them at a discount with quick shipping and not have to worry about customs.
With that said, I'd still prefer to buy from TBS but they didn't have my size and revolve did.

Fit very slightly tighter because the leather does not have as much give as the sneakers. It's a comfort thing, so I don't think sizing up is a problem.

Hey guys, can someone explain the difference between the achilles and vintage low? Difference in shapes, designs etc?

Damn- just got the grey vintage suede in my regular 41 and they fit really tight. I guess because they're padded. Wondering if I should just order the 42 and try to sell these ones on SF... I've worn them for a couple days hoping they'd stretch.

I suppose once the soul compresses and suede stretches the toe box might feel roomier...
