Mob Cool

anyone know of the best place to pick up CP Achilles with a discount code? Not in a rush to buy so can wait it out if necessary. TIA

I got 20% off with end June last year, just checked my account but I’m sure they normally do something Easter time as well.

Those Suit supply Bballs look pretty good to be fair.

Appreciate the pictures. They don't look all that bad.

What size do you take in Nike etc?

What’s the difference between the BBalls on Mr Porter for £280, and those for sale everywhere else for £365?

The £280 version are the ones with pebbled leather panels, the BEST version ever made.

always been £200+ but could draw for the odd 25-30% off code when bballs were seen as booby prize for the banter crew… now they get lumped in with the Achilles so hard to get discounts

Thanks for this

Is sizing the same? Tried on a pair of what I now know to the the plain leather version a few weeks back sizing down one

Am I right in thinking these others may be a size down two job? Assume comfort etc is the same across models? The ones I tried on felt like slippers / like my well worn achilles

I sized down 2 with the 1842 version yes, 42’s were too big for me (as in I went with a 41). Yeah mine were pretty good from the start, couple of plasters on the heel to start off then all good after a few wears.

Gone pretty much the same as my CP's, i don't keep them clean i beat them up but still wear them all the time and still going strong. I got another pair ready to go for when they get totally fucked but i'm nowhere near breaking them out.

I was in Italy last week and stopped for some food while driving. Walked passed a menswear shop selling common project-a-likes for 70euro - called P448s. I've had a look online and the rest of their stuff is gash but I'm looking for more of the CP-a-likes if anyone knows where I can source them.

They're the ones in the picture here (not for sale though)
