    they are definitely navy and look it. In my opinion, not dark enough to pass for black.

    So do the derby shines have the same long, narrow fit as the achilles? Or the roomier toe box of the bballs?

    Considering selling all my achilles in 44's to buy some 45's. I cannot wear these shits with normal socks, and even in thin/dress socks they are still super snug. I don't know why it's taken me so long to figure out they are too small or I should just stick to bballs.

    Yeah. I mean I had initially bought 45's in my mids but returned them cos they were too long. But that was like 3 years ago so maybe sizing has changed a bit? My bballs are all within the last 2 years and 44's are awesome.
    I just need to order 45's and make the comparison side by side I think.
    And if so, anybody interested in white low or all black mid 44's. Whites prolly 8/10 and blacks 9/10 or better.

    Never owned CPs but I'm looking to get some combat boots. If I'm a 8.5 in most sneakers, should I go with 41? 40 seems like it would be too small, but I've seen people saying the combat boots run a little big.

    I find the slip ons to be larger than achilles. I have achilles and slip ons both in 46. achilles are perfect, slip ons need an insole and are still a bit wide. could probably have sized down.

    I have achilles and they are a bit long in 45, should I go to 44 in slip ons?
