Yeah, they're more like those old retro lows than the achilles. Half height marcom-esque sole.

I would too, but what does that say about us? These are less than half the price.

I've posted this before but the Zespa's are great for £155

On par with the CP's I have.

Just checked. I got a 41 which is the same as my Achilles, although the Zespas fit me better as they're not as long. I'm a 40 in bballs for comparison.

Honestly don't get this continuous search for CPs alternatives that cost pretty much the same as a pair of discounted CPs, which can be found everywhere…

Has anyone got the bball lows in womens? I know its been discussed many times - mens and womens should fit the same at least for the achilles model, but I am yet to find info on the bball low model. Im usually size 39 in achilles/41 in usual trainers, bit worried abt sizing down to 38 is going to be too much.

What's with all this bollocks about sizing one down (from nike) on the chelseas? Mr P order finally came in, boots are sweet but too tight. Size one up has gone Cry

I would say they are more comfy though to be fair.

Recently worn my MM GATs and someone came up to me and said he had the M&S pair. That he was in department and a SA complemented his shoes thinking they were MM. I didn't know what to think, isn't that like saying, I worn a Seiko and they thought it was Rolex. Well I had to go check out the M&S version for myself…

Selling these if anyone wants them

The only positive thing, at least imo, on those M&S Replicas is the smaller\shorter tongue.

Everything else is awful

I’m a 41, messaged some fella on eBay about maybe doing a swap with him for some he has for sale and he reckons they’ve changed the sizing of these to normal CP sizing (just down one size, not two) which stacks up for me.
