Nike size there runners different to everyone else

Size 9uk =44 in nike
but if converting european sizes directly
Then size 9uk is actually 43eu in everything else

If your size 9uk nike you should be getting 42 in cp

Got a pair of size 40's Achilles delivered today
I can get them on easily enough however they are very tight in the toe area. Do these stretch out with wear or am I fucked?

Size down 1. Simple enough to get on and off especially after a couple of wears.

Anyone else got leather bballs and find them very squeaky?
I've had white leather ones for over 6 months now with a lot of wear, and even from new they've been a squeaky trainer whilst walking. Never had this with any of the other models, just this one.
Anyone else having this?

About 18 months I think? Yeah it got on my nerves, plus the 42 was too big which pissed me off even more so they had to go.

Bballs are my favourite looking trainers, just wish they would bring the suede versions back. Even though mine are still going strong, black suede with white sole would be the ultimate bball for meCool

Had the same squeak problem, put a little talcum powder or odour eater powder on the tongue where it rubs with the sides, problem solved.
