    Me too. I've got 2 pairs of Achilles, and 2 pairs of Derby shines. I'm pretty sure all of them came with extra laces.

    Tried to find an answer to this but have not yet so far. Is there any way to somewhat clean the crepe sole on CP chelsea or do you guys just leave it and feel like it adds to the "character" of the boots? Thanks

    Which model? The fit varies depending on style. I would go TTS on the Achilles and size down one on the B-Balls. Achilles Retro Size down one.

    Hello fellow Canadian!

    Assuming you just got your boots and don't need to polish them since they're new, I'd probably mink oil them. It'll condition the leather nicely and also make them very water resistant.

    If they're classic black leather CP boots there shouldn't be a problem, but maybe another member or two could comment on this too since I've only owned suede CP boots.

    Anyone have any comments on the difference between the Achilles and the Court Lows? Wondering in terms of sizing but also general impression - they look similar. Thanks!

    I'm also a 10 in Nike, 9.5 on Brannock. Got 42 in Achilles. They're okay after some breaking in.

    The Court is wider in the toe box - the other differences? I think you can see them! Whatever size you wear in the Achilles get the same in the Court IMO.

    I still don't understand why you would size down in the Achilles? Mad.

    They're too long for me, if I get 43. My heel slips and I get creasing in front of my toe. 42 leaves about a thumb's width between my toes and the front of the toebox.

    so how come if I go TTS I have a thumbs width between the toe and the end of the toebox and if I size down my toe is touching the inside of the toebox?

    we both can't be right!!

    I don't get why this CP sizing thing still gets debated, for the Achilles at least. Size down one or a half size from your Nike/Vans size, unless you have wide feet (or at least feet on that side of the width spectrum)

    Haha. What do you consider the inside of the toebox? Ie is the front of your toe touching? And what do you consider TTS? Your Brannock size or what you wear in Nike/Adidas?

    On the left foot the left hand side/centre front of box, the area that's closest to the front of your big toe.

    Usually your big toe is the toe that reaches the out the furthest - some people have weird feet though.

    Don't wear Brannock, Nike or Adidas.
