    A friend purchased two pairs of women's yesterday so I asked him for you. He mentioned that one size up felt OK but since men generally have a wider foot from the large toe to the smallest toe, regarding width. Going two sizes of fits proper and isn't as long as when going up a full men's size, due to the women's sizing. Seems perfect to go 2 up , then scale back if needed, which I don't think you would. I hope this helps, I know returns can be a pain overseas.

    Does anyone know the difference between the achilles low in "navy" with the following different color codes: 3013, 4928 ? They all seem to be called "navy" on different sites for purchase, but its odd that a core color (black, white, navy, gray) would have different color/style numbers. Thanks

    Hey all, can someone confirm whether I should get the same size in the chelsea boots as I have in the achilles lows? From what I have read online, I think they fit similarly, but I found a good deal on a pair and was hoping to get definitive confirmation. Thanks for any help.

    They are just slightly tighter on the foot but pretty much fit the same.

    Bballs are wider/bigger, but I still wear the same size. If your Achilles are snug then buy the same size bballs, if your Achilles are long then size down on bballs.

    Just to add my experience with sizing of the Achilles. I'm a size 10 in most major sneaker brands, and all charts and advice I've read suggested that I should get a size 43 in the Achilles, but that size is huge on me. 42 is the size that works for me, length is perfect, but the width is a little tight. I assume they will stretch over time.

    The rubber along the midsole seems to have been torn off in those parts. I contacted customer service and they offered a 10% refund.
    Should i take it or return it? Total price comes up to 240 shipped after the refund which is a very good price, but for a damaged item i'm not so sure..

    IMHO, I would return them. They're damaged.

    Thank you! They seem to be much better with rolled or cuffed pants. I imagine with normal jeans they don't look as clean or classy as the Achilles? Different looks I guess

    It depends on the colourway, I guess. They're certainly less 'sleek' than Achilles, as they're wider, but depends what look you're going for.

    Jeans are rolled there because I had a pretty rubbish alteration done on them and the hem is not great, and didn't get them tapered enough to be worn normally. I wear those shoes with other jeans normally though, uncuffed, and they still look good, but I think a big part of that is the light suede, which makes them easy to wear like white sneakers.

    Don't get any waxed suede ones though, that's what those are and the leather doesn't feel as nice as some burgundy normal suede ones that I also have from them.
    But then again, not everyone absentmindedly strokes their shoes... [​IMG]
