^ yeah it looks like yours have taken quite a bit more of a beating. Love them. I might legitimately let mine live the end of their life as my full time skate shoe. Anyone here have the Achilles Low in the black suede? maybe my favorite make up by them

No better feeling than whipping out a fresh new pair of CPs after your current ones have worn out.

Probably the only shoe brand where I have repeatedly bought the same shoe after they wore out.

How do the Bball compare to the achilles? For reference, I wear a 40 EU in the achilles and 8-8.5 in Nikes. Albeit the 40 EU is a little lengthy in toe room, the 39 EU was a little too tight in width. I can easily slide a thumb by the heel if I slide my foot forward. Stick to a 40 EU or get a 39 EU in the CP Bball low?

Depends which model but assuming it's the 2128 or 2155 I'd go for your Achilles size

The 2128 is from 2017 and the 2155 is from 2018.

The most obvious difference is the rear chevron - a separate leather piece in the 2128 and only stitching in the 2155. See image.

In my experience the 2155 has a little more padding and is a slightly tighter fit.

I could have not expected a better answer.
I currently own the 2128 and I love them so much I plan to purchase a second pair as backup.
I found the 2155 at a decent price and this is the reason I wanted to know what to expect.
Thank you very much ThePaleKing.

Any folks in Paris at the moment? Check out Le Bon Marche. Many CPs on sale for 100 euros. Picked up multiple Achilles lows here :)

I've been meaning to head to Paris to see some friends and the Gio Ponti exhibit at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. 100 euro CP's might get me to go much sooner than expected. Is it very limited stock, or do they have a decent amount of sizes/styles in stock?

They had a near FSR of the Achilles in light tan with the white sole. A few sizes of white perforated Achilles. Scattered sizes of blue, maroon, black and grey Achilles in suede / leather. Black loafers and brown Derby’s (both in football leather).
