Do the resort classic fit the same as achilles?

I love these light tan colors. Navy and off white (natural?) look really nice. Like oatmeal color. Or anything really warm in the orange / pink spectrum.What color pants and top would you wear with these bballs? The color is tempting me to get a pair. I like how it's different to the white and greys
very interesting, thanks for sharing.I'm between two sizes (40 and 41) in CPs. Wear US 7,5 in 1970s Converses and US 8 in Nike AF1. My experience with different models.
Original achilles low: sz 40 fits a bit too narrow and 41 are just too long. I prefer 40 but there's better fitting models available for me.
Original achilles mid: sz 40 fits ok. I don't wear mids anymore though.
Premium achilles lows: sz 40. Slightly less narrow than original achilles low. Fits fine and aren't too long.
Premium full-grain achilles high: sz 40. Slightly less narrow than original achilles low. Fits fine and aren't too long.
Super achilles low from ss17: sz 40. Fits fine.
Nubuck bballs from ss19: sz 41. Fits fine. Smaller than original achilles lows.
Suede achilles lows: sz 41. Slightly smaller than original achilles lows.
Retros: sz 40. Fits fine. Sold these.
I had the same issue as you. The 40 was a bit too tight and I couldn't wear all day without it hurting and 41 was a bit longer than I wanted. Ended up keeping 41. Just wore thicker socks and would rather prefer to wear them all day instead of a few hours without pain.Wondering if someone else can chime in on this - I'm a pretty consistent sz 9.5 across the board, except some miUSA New Balance models I go down to a 9.
Got a pair of sz 41 Achilles and B-Balls in from Matches last week, and while I could get them on my foot, they were both unbearably tight (even barefoot). They also looked quite tight on my foot, because of my thicker ankles and wide feet (especially the Achilles).
I exchanged for a sz 42 Achilles, and it fit me great in width (slightly snug), but is slightly too long.
Should I be worried the 42 will stretch too much and eventually be too big? FWIW I have a large shoe rotation so they'd only get maybe 1-2 wears a month.
not in my experience, same length just wider. Maybe because of the extra width you could size down, but i'd try one on first before purchasing if you have the ability to do so.do you know if the BBall is shorter than Achilles? I need the width for sure, but hopefully they’re slightly shorter
