guys, you can reliably get brand new white achilles lows for ~$330 USD year-round from reputable european sites that deduct vat

pay the extra for the peace of mind
Tres-Bien

If you are patient, you can always get another 20% off with their codes. In fact, they have a sale right now. Add to cart and automatically takes it off. $275 for lows but no whites currently.

There’s been plenty of good deals recently. Farfetch private sale had them for $234 in a few sizes, Matches was around $280. Fwrd has good prices on the track sneakers if anybody wanted them.
I just want some black/black Achilles or bballs.

Hey all, what's the difference between an Achilles Low and a Achilles Premium Low? Looking at the grey premium with the white soles.... and trying to decide if I should grab that or the all-grey regular achilles low.

Talking about these: https://www.farfetch.com/shopping/men/common-projects-achilles-low-top-sneakers-item-13835560.aspx?storeid=9583
A lot of the Achilles premium have a tumbled leather which is nicer imo. They also have a different, very slightly thicker sole with a different tread pattern.

Some do some don’t have nicer leather. Cases by case basis

Have been trying to find b-ball’s in gray leather everywhere, but can’t seem to find them. They made them in suede this year but prefer the leather, anyone have any ideas? Wish I hadn’t slept on them. Thanks.

The jank website made me hesitate but I can't find any reason to doubt their legitimacy. Got a pair this morning, the price is insane
Are these priced in USD or Euro I’m in Canada so just wondering, thanks
