I have two pairs of these 2053 models. One with navy and one with black inner.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 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 durableIt does stretch out but it’s just generally not a flattering silhouette on wider feet. Might be better suited to B-Ball Lows.
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.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
