naw italian sizing goes up by halves in US sizing, man:

40 = 7.5

41 = 8

42 = 8.5

i've fucked my common projects up so much, and i've only worn them 3 times. got caught in a huge rainstorm over the summer while waiting on line for a show and that was about it for the oh-so delicate just-born calf leather or whatever it is. Hey, they're built like a tank but be prepared to coat them with 15 layers of weather proofing. Anyway, then I dumped some pipe-cleaning chemicals on them to see what would happen because I honestly didn't give a fuck at that point but that didn't do much other than color them a nice darker shade. I think I'm going to just paint them white and call it a day.

My size 39 Achilles came in and they fit awesome.

Some people here say that they get some squeaking but mine doesnt have it which is great. I did try on some size 40 ones before though and they had a terrible squeak. Think the squeak could be related to the shoes being too big which I know that people could have had problems with since the sizing is a bit weird/confusing?

my cp's are almost 2 sizes too small now (feet grew 2 sizes in like 6 months, posted a thread about it a while ago) but i still wear them in semi-agony because i love them.

what is the biggest size cp make? i have only seen up to 45 for sale but i thought kunk said a few years ago they did a 46 and maybe a 47; they are just harder to track down.

I wear a US 10-11 and size 42 CPs fit me fine. Actually, my 42 slip-ons are a little big.

Speaking of those slip-ons, has anyone bought a pair where the gold labeling is crooked and actually goes under the sole?

Pretty sure they're still doing 46, just bought some not long ago that ended up being too big. Never seen a 47 though.

does anyone know how much different between the dessert boot and achilles ? i got a 42 boot and its quite loose (without socks) and got a slightly tight 41 maroon achilles. im guessing its because of the different materials between those two

i never try a 42 achilles so thats why im asking, cuz when i got the maroon achilles it was on sale and only one size left.

Achilles are the same fit/sizing as the court shoes.
