    Update - worn them 3-4 times now and they're not cutting into my heels anymore at all.

    That said, they're still much tighter than my other 41's (2 other pairs). 42's might have been better in the Achilles.

    Anyone know if the winters would be much like these as well? I don't want to size up to 42 (my natural size US9) unless completely necessary.

    While the Achilles is padded around the top edges, they're not really padded on the inside of the shoe either much like the other models I own.

    Anyone have the derby's from this season? Are the shoes that shiny in person and does the shine wear off pretty easily with wear?

    Marrkt.com has a pretty good sale on CP right now. A lot of small sizes (39 and 40) were available when I last checked.

    Are the Vintage Lows and Achilles Low the same sizing/fit?

    Anyone see local boutiques carrying the black derby shine in 41? Desperate for em now.

    I'm assuming these are sized like all other CPs?

    Anywhere still selling CP x Geller black oxfords in a 43? Unless you have to size down then 42.

    I'm thinking of picking up a pair of achilles lows soon. I'm 9.5 in most sneakers, 8.5D on an alden barrie last and 8.5D in Redwings. Would a size 42 work?

    ^ A TTS 9 should probably fit a 41.

    I think you'd be a 42. Want my winter premium blacks? Anyone know where I can find a 43? The ones I got are too small. [​IMG]

    Hmm- really want to pull the trigger on the vintage navy lows from Tres Bien on boxing day, but I'm sort-of worried that they'll be sold out by then. Thoughts? Does Tres Bien do sales/codes for post-xmas?

    My sizing experience with CP isn't to simply size down one like many do. I'm a US9 in most sneakers (Tigers etc).

    On full suede models like the Tournament Low and full leather shell cap, I'm a 41 (US8). However on padded/thicker body models like the Achillies Vintage (and I assume winter), I bought 41 and they were too tight in the toe box and tore up my heel at the join.

    So ill be going for 42's in those models to give a little more length and space in the toe box.
