    thanks for the responses. ha I know, I wouldn't mind if it happened with time, but not 3 months. Maybe I was sloppy, but this indicates the leather is not that great. This was my first pair and now I kind of regret it. Maybe I'm just too pissed still.

    If anyone wants them and dont mind this 'scuffs', send me a message with offer. Hope I don't regret after but I'm really considering letting this go

    Treat your shoes just like any other leather shoe. Use a leather cleaner, then use a white leather polish. They'll look good as new

    I wouldn't use polish, they aren't Edward Greens. You scuffed them. The paint isn't bulletproof, it's going to scrape off. Just deal with it and enjoy wearing your sneakers man.

    Lastly, no one wants your stinky shoes haha.

    My two cents.

    Random stuff happens to shoes. I actually managed to somehow rub off a couple of numbers on one of my CPs and I have no idea how it happened, but I guess I must have rubbed them hard against something without knowing.

    I guess not much you can do. Try not to worry too much about it, they will still look good with your outfit cause the style and shape are timeless. Give it some time and you won't think of it. Otherwise, just use this as an excuse to make your CP achilles your everyday wear shoes and you'll get used to it (and look good daily too haha).

    Hope that makes you feel a little better.

    Anyone go TTS on Bballs? Unfortunately, I don't have the opportunity to try them before ordering.

    I went TTS on my Bballs. They do feel a little bigger than my achilles, but I haven't tried a size down.

    people size down up to two (one down from their achilles size) for bballs, so i wouldn't recommend it

    So I didn't know this until I received them in the mail, but the Natural colorway of Achilles this SS17 season was a vegetable leather, so they'll age pretty dope with time!

    Thanks! I think I'll order TTS and see how they work. Sizing down generally does not work for me, given the amount of walking I do.

    sorry, but what do you mean? the shoe with some marks is the left one. apart from that, the heel looks fine. Right one, no problem at all.
