Has anyone seen a size 12.5 or 13 for the Chelsea Tobacco? Can't find the collection anywhere.

Hi friends. I love Common Projects Achilles but my right foot has a wide point near my pinky toe area that makes most Common Projects a bit too tight. I have a few of the usual models, like the standard whites and blacks that work ok for a brief walk but end up feeling too tight. I've had them for years and they don't seem to want to stretch out in that area. A few years ago I found one model in Europe that fit just right. They seem to be slightly wider. It was a series CP made that had colored insides and soles. I recall the colors were white, red, or black, all on a white/white shoe. I've worn them into the ground and would love to replace them, but I can't find this style of Achilles anymore. I just compared them to the standard Achilles and realized they have a completely different sole. I'm attaching photos in case anyone knows what model this is and if they're still made. Thanks!

The cleaner model is the standard 1528 and the beat-up one is the wider one 2053.

EDIT: According to this site, the sole on the ones I prefer (2053) is the "KOBE" sole. https://www.footwearoutsourcing.com/en/margom-soles/

I have two pairs of these 2053 models. One with navy and one with black inner.

The fit is better and it is sad to see that this model got discontinued. As someone who has owned more than 10 pairs of different Common Projects, I think this is the best one both quality and width-wise. In your case I would ask if a cobbler could do some magic.

Please post some pics If you get the soles fixed. I'm really interested.

I wear 42 - 42 1/2 on shoes without half size I wear 42
I got achilles black in 42, I did forgot they wear 1 size up... was way too long
Returned and got 41, the problem is that I have wide feet and the feel perfect in length but very narrow does the shoes get softer and more comfortable over time, because right now is really uncomfortable but I just kept on 5 minute in my house in case I need to return it

It does stretch out but it’s just generally not a flattering silhouette on wider feet. Might be better suited to B-Ball Lows.

I don't like the other models, the other option was Gucci Ace but they ( at list in photo ) look more like many other sneakers, and from review I saw they don't really seem so durable

They’re definitely not as durable ime however they do look better on wider feet. I have wide feet so I gave up Achilles. I have bball lows and margiela gats for the styles I would’ve used aces for instead.

Figured out these are legit, however, they're size 40 and I'm a US 9, they fit with no socks/ ultra thin socks, but I feel I may be a size 41. Any place I can know for sure? Heard sizing discrepancies between the years
