Are those the standard white? Or cream? Look good despite lacing.

Just have one lace side not go through all holes, and the remaining goes through all.

LFC is right about OG Bballs. The leather grain panels make them look so much and I found them to be a size down 2 job, whereas Achilles just size down 1.

My bballs have just shown up today, defo could’ve got away with my Achilles size. They are very snug on 2 sizes down, need to try them on properly but I may have a pair of size 40 available.

true, still think achilles look better id still pick a pair of Zespas over CPs all day long, maybe an exception for the Chelsea's. Either way fukers can load up on em, wear em and flip em for little damage

Don't understand the Bball love, think there's price blindness / post-purchase rationalisation going on…
