You sure you don’t just need the next size up, I’m an 8 but a 41 in all CP’s I’ve ever owned. I tried a 40 when I was told to size down two a bit back and there wasn’t a chance I could wear them.

It all depends what model they are mate. The first 4 numbers of the heel code will tell you.

I’m surprised nobody on here has mentioned the full court lows. They are similar to the bball and much comfier. They have a slightly thicker sole (closer to AF1) and a different toe box that means they pinch as much. Plus they are lined.
A very underrated CP, perhaps because they aren’t in as many shops.

2128. The length seems fine, just a bit narrow.

Annoyingly I have a pair of MM replicas that are too big.

Butteros are way way better but still not perfect imo. The wear in takes ages!

I've always hated paying so much for CP's but I just can't find a trainer that gets the shape right like them.

Anyone got any other suggestions?

VOR shoes. Prefer their shape and I’m still wearing mine after 5+ years. Regular wear. Quality is excellent and the people behind it are sound.

Svensson are very similar shape and cheaper too. Not sure how quality compares. Have some here but haven’t worn them yet.

Thanks for the video share by the way Sodom….

Artisan lab ones look like a pretty much identical copy and are half the price, never tried them myself though.

Got a pair that I wore regularly for a year now. They are decent. Good for the coin. Up to par with CP's.
The lowest eyelids are also up a bit higher than CP's so they allow for a bit more room across lowest part of the forefoot. So I'd say the fit is a bit better. Though I had them stretched out in the toe by a cobbler when I first got them. But that's the same as CPs.

Always wondered if they were up to much, fancy the gum sole ones. Regret selling my Cp ones

The artisan labs look good for the money but searching #artisanlab on insta and seeing the shape on foot, they’re not a patch on CP’s.
