    Always find it hilarious how people describe the gold lettering ostentatious when I don't think I've ever noticed them on mine or my buddy's cps.

    I agree; I never notice my friends' lettering. That being said, they are easy as hell to rub off if you really wanted no lettering.

    Mr. Porter also has an exclusive version of the CP's with a fine textured leather and a tan lining which looks nice. But at the price point it is hovering around now, I might as well shell out for SLPs or something.

    Can you share your fit experience? What size did you get and what size do you wear in other brands (Nike, Clarks, etc.)? Thanks!

    To other owners of the (white) Achilles. I bought these this summer and wore them regularely. I love them, but also have two problems: The squeaking just doesn't stop and the color starts to rub of (left shoe more than right). Is this normal? I never saw it this bad before. Also the squeaking. When I went into a shop to compare, the displayed and pretty much new shoes felt softer and didn't squeak.

    Does anybody have or had similar experiences with that?

    Bought a camel overcoat to pair with the Sand Chelseas.. not sure how I feel about the 2 shades together. Maybe should've gone with a lighter shade of camel?

    Easily enough contrast there, could look good. Any lighter could have looked a bit matchy

    Don't have the discoloring issue, granted mine are a few weeks old. The squeaking has not stopped and doesn't seem like it plans to. I still wear them anyway, only slightly awkward around the office.

    Smh guys if they're white just add some baby powder or whatever. It's moisture that creates the squeaking so the powder works and you don't use much. Don't know how you can live whit squeaky shoes

    Hmm my colour didn't rub this badly and I wear my while achilles low quite a lot.

    Mine stopped squeaking after about a month of wear, but if they do squeak and everyone looks, just tell them that's the sound of luxury :p

    My white Achilles High (I've had since 09) has all kinds of messed up coloration issues (especially where the laces sit). This is normal. The squeaking won't stop but it shouldn't bother you. My Achilles low I've had for 2 years still squeaks.

    I just grabbed a pair of SS16 ball low in white from end clothing at 50% off [​IMG]

    The only size available was a UK11. I have 46 in Achilles and have a narrow foot. I've always heard that I should size down 1 with narrow feet to 45 in Bball Low......does a UK11 translate to an EU 45 in this case?

    If I have to return them I will get screwed on the shipping costs, but I didn't want to risk someone else grabbing them at that price so I pulled the trigger.

    Can anyone comment on the UK sizing and/or ENDs size chart? Thanks!

    UK 11 is a size 45. You did good on the size IMO.

    Picked up the black leather Chelseas from the Steven Alan sale for just under $300 because I wanted an alternative to my SLPs that I would feel better about wearing more often and in poor conditions. I've found very few photos of and info about these online. (All the focus is on the suede Chelseas.) Can anyone share some after you've worn them in or any experiences you've had with them? I need to decide whether to keep them or not.

    Guys, was thinking of picking up a pair of retro bball high.
    Is the sizing usually one less than Achilles sizing? I'm usually a 43 in Achilles retro (which is bigger than Achilles?)

    Also, any fit photos? Couldn't see any in this thread.

    Any other comments also appreciated. Was thinking of buying the saint Laurent sl-10 but if these do the job at a better rice, that'd be great.

    Thanks a lot!
