I'd buy some throwaway rod Laver's rather than wearing the same stinking white trainers for years because they cost so much

These look good. Made in Italy, same factory as CP and no number branding either.

Thanks for the shout, called the factory store but unfortunately they were out of stock. Regardless, might call them in the future if i'm looking for something else.


Also Cp's are brutal for your feet. Surprised anyone gets on with them.

not even close to being brutal, soft as butter. My ones are anyway.

Seconded. When I first 'unboxed' the first thing that struck me was the softness of the leather

i think they're a bit hit or miss.

I've got 2 pairs of achillies, one are super comfy, the other are unwearable

Must have had 10-12 pairs over last few years and some have been great out of the box some are heel shredders and took a while to soften up.

Bought a pair of AM1 ostrichs to paint them Vachetta tan.





Mixing these two:

(bit darker in person)



Should be fine, colour wise. Just contemplating about what to do with the midsoles. Perhaps a hue lighter/pinker or something among those lines.

Regardless, getting arts and crafts up in this.

They're gonna look like plastic mannequin/fleshlight material. If you're gonna do it though, definitely leave the midsoles white

Laughing out loud

I'll do a few testers but I'm pretty certain It needs a drop of pink for that peculiar hue.
