    I'm a U.S. 12 and take a 44 in all CP's. Achilles are tight and uncomfortable but every other pair I own, including derby shines, are perfect in a 44.
    Sounds like you would probably be a 43.

    I am US 11 in almost everything and 44 is to big for me, but I am afraid that 43 would be to tight as achilles are narrow in the toebox area.

    Hi all. I am thinking of buying my first pair of CP and looking at thr Achilles in either white or black. Would like some advice on the following:
    1. I'm a 9E in gaziano and girling, would I go with a 9 or 10 in CP? Don't have the opportunity to try them on where I live.
    2. I really don't wear sneakers, I usually dress a little more formal and need some help in dressing casual during the summer but still looking good and feeling comfortable. Would white or black be the smarter/more versatile shoe?
    Ken

    The all black look like orthopedic shoes to me. I'd go white. Definite classic in the low.

    Gray is more versatile

    are you sure that you want combat boots from cp?

    i've always thought that their use of a crepe sole was always out of character for that kind of boot (even if it's only a fashion boot)


    but i'm p ignorant, so maybe i'm missing something?

    Desert boots were purported used in bush warfare, so there there is some precedent for crepe being used on military boots.

    I've wanted a pair of CPs for quite a while. I kind of have my heart set on the older vintage bball highs in white with the off-colored sole. I guess it's a waiting game to find these for a decent price? I'm a size 43 and there are a pair for sale on grailed, however he wants $300 shipped, which I think is a bit crazy for a used sneaker when I could get achilles black from the corner for $230 new. Is that a decent price considering it's an older model? I wouldn't be wearing them much until the fall so I can wait, but I don't want to kick myself if checking grailed/ebay/marketplace every few days doesn't result in a pair for cheaper.

    I really wanted a white high top, but I might just have to buy these... can't beat 50% off.

    e: jesus I just tried to pull the trigger but the corner doesn't ship to Canada! my heart is crushed; bank account relieved.
