I assume you are referring to the suede achilles originals. If so then no, they don't stretch more than the leather achilles. I have both leather and suede, they fit practically the same, maybe a bit more narrow in the toe box on the suede ones.Hi guys, does the suede originals stretch out more compared to the leather (non suede) originals? The leather originals don't work for me re width, but the retros work perfect; considering buying a pair of suede ATM and hoping they stretch more. Thanks.
Returned the original pair and received a second pair in the mail today. Literally the same exact issue. The leather doesn't match the laces at all. I spoke with a buddy who purchased a pair last month from Mr Porter. He said he had the same exact issue with two different pairs. Looks like it's not a fluke thing. Common Projects must have changed something... for the worse. Debating on returning them and finding something else. They just look weird.It looks like the 'taupe' colorway, maybe a mixup in the factory. I'm sure it will be an easy exchange process
Wow thats pretty crazy. Better in the long run for the consumer though.
All you people saying b-ball’s have changed sizing are right. I didn’t believe you. I bought a pair of black ones during that whole discussion and they fit how they usually do but I’m guessing now that pair was just a leftover from the previous season. They are same as Achilles now.
Has everything shifted to align with the Achilles? I remember buying the track sneakers about 2 years ago in my usual 44 and I had to return them, and that was because of length not width. I didn’t like them enough to try a 45 at the time.
Compared to Achilles, both 44

If anybody is looking for some 44 white b-ball’s let me know. I got a good price and will pass it on, otherwise I’ll return them.
