Who told you that? They fit smaller than standard converse imo, size down and they'll crucify you. I'm a UK9 or 9.5 in most things and take a 10 in 70's cons.

Agree with this and Seventyfour, I'm a 9 in most trainers and take a 9.5 in 70s. Hoping these aren't going to be mad hyped as I'd like a pair of the greys.

70's Cons are definitely larger for me, even the Converse website says it on the product page and recommends going half a size down, which i have always done in them. I don't understand how you'd need to size up?? Would end up looking like clown shoes if i was doing that…

Hmm I bought a pair of black leather 70's in my usual size but felt too big. Like I said - best to check with someone else though. Blacks are the one and will fly I reckon unlike most Fragment recently

On a side note - I hate having to get news about this from High Snob etc. Sandwiched in between an article about how Lil Yachty is the new face of hip-hop and why Supreme collab'ing with LV is the best/worst thing that's ever happened

Same size as Nike for me. Slightly long but narrow if anything. Fragments are just hype bollocks.

People tend to be in one of two camps with 70s:
Rub the heel or rub the 'pinky toe'

They are sized weirdly if you look on the box it says US9 UK9 eu 42.5 a UK9 would normally be US8 UK9 EU43, I would hazard a guess that the people who think they are a little long are buying eu or us sizes
