    Exactly. I'm 5'11'' and wear US 12 and he's 6' and wears US 10. I want to show him this thread and convince him he won't look like a clown in 43s

    If he has wide feet he'll need the 43. If they are too long he could also try insoles or thick socks. It might help.

    PS you're a good friend, how do I get a friend like you?

    I'm sorta new to these sneakers. I've been looking at the brown and the white Achilles (and the Buttero Tanino). Do these go on sale often? If so, where should I look?

    The standard white low achilles rarely go on deep discount. You can pick them up for 20% off on some sales. The seasonal line all goes on sale when the seasonal sales happen (June for S/SS Nov/Dec for F/W).

    Has anybody seen the winter combats in a 44 outside of Ssense?
    It seems like they weren't picked up by many stores, unless Ssense just got their shipment early.

    Has anyone successfully cleaned suede CPs? I always brush them with a suede brush every week or so, but in the past I've felt that cleaners like Jason Markk just distort the look of suede to some extent.

    I'll probably put my Tobacco Chelseas away for winter in the next month or two, but wondering if I should try cleaning them?

    I use a suede eraser and a suede brush to clean my suede CP chelseas. I have used Jason Markk on my suede Lanvin's to clean them and they have turned out fine though.

    Yeah, I do use a suede eraser + brush, but was looking to do a deep clean for the whole shoe.

    Maybe I'll see what the Hanger Project sells, else I'll just use Jason Markk.

    I've heard of people using suede shampoo (Saphir I think is the brand) and that has worked well in the past. I'm sure a quick google search or maybe in reddit and you can find a few examples.

    I have the Saphir suede shampoo, but candidly, I have never bothered to use it. I just brush with a suede brush periodically.

    Yeah the white low achilles rarely go on sales and even if so, it might be hard to find your size. If it helps or makes you feel any better, I bought my whites for full price and for me it was worth every dollar. I am wearing them right now.
