Thanks for the pics. I am waiting for mine, my first Archibald order, hoping the sizing will be right. What size are you in these and Nike for comparison? I think we have to accept these are not white and treat them as their own thing.This came in today. Was hesitant on pulling the trigger on these as I was interested in bright white, and the ultralights. Went back and forth with Rohan a few times (thanks for your patience), but decided white veg tan leather sneaker just sounds too damn interesting and luxe to pass up. Have to make this relatively short for now but I am impressed with the construction, the leather, the stitching, and the sole. The tonguegate is not just gone, its perfectly done now. Last pic is next to my wife's white V1s. The V2 is unmistakably off-white. I initially wondered if its close enough to be a interchangeable with bright white...and its not. The V2 veg white feels like its own animal almost like a special edition or something. 1st pic is with the white laces that the shoes came laced with. The rest are with the undyed laces the Archibald guys were awesome enough to source and include.
They're size 41. Nikes are usually too narrow in the toe box for me so the only ones I wear are Air Trainer SC Bo Jacksons in size 10, and occasionally Jordan Vs in size 9.5 - US sizes.Thanks for the pics.

Is there a pure white (chrome tan) version of the SF01-V2?
Okay. I'm US10.5 in Nike (which I do find consistent across models) and ordered 43. Hope that's not too big.They're size 41. Nikes are usually too narrow in the toe box for me so the only ones I wear are Air Trainer SC Bo Jacksons in size 10, and occasionally Jordan Vs in size 9.5 - US sizes.
I agree. I think there will be a demand for pure white V2s even if they are chrome tan. It would be good to have the choice, especially since they are made to order.I dont believe there is a chrome tan bright white V2. I do think there will always be a demand for them if the Archibald guys are considering adding them again.
Thanks for this. I can see that. I feel the same, I tend towards a pure white look, but on this occasion opted for the off-white veg tan simply because I was curious about the quality.The off white has its own character. If the bright white color has a crisp, pure, fresh and cool feel...the off white has the feel of luxury and warmth that exudes from the natural character of the leather. My initial hesitancy to pick these was because my overall style leans toward cool tones and shuns from warm tones.
I too am aware that these are not pure white. For this reason I do think they should be referred to on the website as off-white or cream. It is better to be up-front about this subtle difference since there are people who just wouldn't want anything but pure white.One disclaimer - I fully knew what these were going to look like, color wise. I asked if there was a spare white 41, and was told there was and the off white color was shown to me. One thing I'm curious about is how this would look like with off white soles instead of white soles. On one hand, i like the subtle contrast...on the other hand, I think having a seamless transition from upper to sole would suit the concept of the veg tan minimalist sneaker. Photoshop, perhaps?
I have both in 41 and don't notice much of a difference...the V2 might feel ever so slightly more snug in the toebox but could be due to leather stiffness and the fact that I haven't had the chance to break in the V2.anyone who had a V1 and now got a V2 as well? I got a 41 in V1 but was too big, now waiting for size 40 in V2. Do V2s fit a bit more snug than V1s in same size?
My V2’s seem to mirror NC321’s experience, they appear to be just a smidge more snug than the V1’s straight out the box.anyone who had a V1 and now got a V2 as well? I got a 41 in V1 but was too big, now waiting for size 40 in V2. Do V2s fit a bit more snug than V1s in same size?
