Agree with that YLAup. Can't understand why they stopped making them. I still wear my brown chukkas from time to time, they must be 6-7 years old now. Classic silhouette

I had the grey suedes and loved them.

They have also changed the design of the bball and it looks fucking gash, so disappointed.

Yes but I would say don’t bother. Your brain will try to convince your subconscious that it’s ok but deep down you will know you are a fraudster.

ODB, looking at them again, I think they might be legit, on first look I thought the toebox looked off, but for price; no box, no receipt. I wouldn't risk it anyway.

I'm 100% certain the first ones are snide, if you look at the front profile image, you'll see the stitching is off. Don't even mention the dust bag Laughing out loud

Can only assume the leather is shitty; Moral of the story, only purchase from retail lol

not hatin' (….still love their shoes), but in the longterm the leather from other lux sneakers is just better.
i wore my white sl 01 all year and with new laces and some jason mark they actually look like new. No scratches, crinckles, spots…
When i compare this with cps i owned over the years the difference is crazy. I think it's because sl uses softer leather, so the leather can't really brake?! Cps need a while to break-in, but when they do there is no turning back. And the leather at the heel dissolves/scratches very easily at all cps i owned.

The laces are shit too. But, it's scary for those who have no idea about the shoe, and not knowing what to look for, dropping £230 on them.

Would anybody be willing to part way with a spare pair of Achilles Low laces in white? Bought some Achilles Low on eBay which have replacement laces put on them but they're obviously not original CP laces, some thick bog standard sports laces. Obviously its near impossible to find some original CP laces anywhere else online. Would be willing to pay a small amount for them, but nothing over the odds
