fake. return them
As I suspected, the first photo makes the toe box look wrong but it isn't, its just the angle of the photo. Did you scroll through the entire photos?Toe box. The toe rises/bulges too soon. On real shoes the toe leather is totally flat with no upwards inclination. And the toe is too round. Real Achilles are shockingly pointed when not being worn.
Just buy them from a shop. How much money are you trying to save?
I agree with you with the peace of mind. Like I said, the first photo makes the toe box and whole shoe irregular, it's the angle of the photo. But having owned 3 pairs I don't see any flaws from the photos. There's even the marking of where the sticker was on the bottom that has been removed.You haven't bought them yet or you 'd have better photos and better info. You're always going to worry they're not real and at $250 you deserve peace of mind. I don't think the toe looks good. It might be. One of the things with some second hand CPs is they've been stretched out of shape because someone has bought a size too small and now they need to sell them. If he says he hasn't worn them then definitely he's lying or they're fake. Either way I'm going to tell you this. The feeling you get when you take a brand new pair out of the box.... Maybe wear them for a week around the house like slippers because you don't want to make them dirty... Some powder because they're squeaking... You look at your feet in the mirror from different angles... Feel like the king of the world.
You're not going to get any of that. You're wearing someone's second hand shoes. To save $100.
Don't do it to yourself.
No one gave detailed responses except Pale. Certainly you didn't. And maybe he even changed his mind after seeing other photos that weren't distorted and if not it's all good.Just buy them if you really want then. Don't ask for opinions if they're fake, get input and detailed responses from others, and then try to refute them.
Anything to save a few dollars. Jesus.
