I have a size 42 in the all white BBalls I bought from DSM. I've worn them twice and decided they are a touch too big for me.

If anyone is interested please DM me.

Yeah that makes snse then with them being the newer code. Hope you get it sorted.

Fairly sure I've just got a snide pair off ebay, the seller has already agreed to a refund so all good but be warned there are fakes out there.

For reference I bought the 1658 black with white sole. Went for my normal size and they are tiny so that sent alarm bells ringing. Checked the insole and it's bunched towards the toebox like they're the wrong size. The leather feels very soft and cheap unlike my other achilles and the sole was off.

Yup, loads of shnide CPs now - I think it's harder to tell too from photos until you actually receive them (and know the quality of CP leather already). Laces seem to be the giveaway…?!

I'd only cop from retail, from here, or if the seller has a receipt/retail label on the box (although obviously not always a given…)

Have last season BBalls in a 42. Tired on new season and need a 43, my Achilles size. Sizing def seems to have changed.

What style code did you get? The version I tried are 2155.

I took the same size as Achilles in slip ons so I’d say yes.

So for new bballs size down 1 now? Mr Porter got grain leather on side. Is it old stock or they just used the old photo?

Ty.

Picked up another pair of Bballs @40% off (although 18Montrose non sale price is slightly higher than RRP. Still a decent deal.
