    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I think there's a bit of paranoia tbh when it comes to CP sizing.

    I am true US10 (10 Vans/10.5 flyknits, etc) and I found that a 43 in CP is slightly too large. A 42 is a bit tight in width, but after a bit of wear, it becomes a perfect fit.

    And I wear 42 in Vintage high, Achilles low, Achilles low mesh, Canvas low, and the track shoe. I think there's a bit of difference between the models, but not so that you should keep yourselves up at night about it.

    I wear 43 in my achilles suedes and they're indeed too long, but only slightly. I can't imagine wearing smaller width though, it's already snug enough, although I have normal width. That's why I am not sure if I should go for 42 with my next purchase, which are (hopefully) the black mids.

    anyway, does anyone know why the nubuck/mesh combo CP from this season is priced higher than the leather models? is it only because they're new? or if the material is indeed more expensive than the leather?

    Am I tripping or do these look green? They're the blue perforated lows. They definitely look green in person. Also I would probably size down if going from original achilles to perforated; not certain however as these fit fine width wise but had a good inch and a half left in the toe, compared to about an inch in the original lows.

    What about this photo? I'd say it depicts the color more accurately. Not sure how they turned out differently in the pictures I took. I am slightly red-green colorblind but that shouldn't matter in this case.

    They look greenish in that last photo, but I'd say blue for sure in the previous ones. Either way, the colour is nice.

    That's because you see the details. Seen from conversation-range they look pretty boring. Or maybe I'm just not incorporating them with my outfit properly.

    CPs are boring, in a way that's the point

    Looking for a pair of white Achilles lows in size 41 or 42. Perforated is fine, gumsole is fine, regular all white is fine. Just don't wanna pay $400. Anybody have any for sale?
