COMMON PROJECTS F/W 2015
THE INNOVATIVE SNEAKER-MEETS-SHOE
Among the plethora of hyper-decorated and ultra-colored sneakers, the no-fuss aesthetic of Common Projects is as refreshing as a spring breeze. In solid black or white, at times touched up with a hint of ox blood red on the heel, these unlined sneakers favor craftsmanship over showmanship. To wit, they are made with prized Italian nappa and stitched rather than glued, resulting in sturdy closet staples. The kind that age well, that look best when worn in.
A cross between a sneaker and a shoe, they lend themselves to myriad looks and styles, from trendy to dressy to super relaxed. And preferably sockless.
Founded in 2004 by shoe designers Peter Poopat and Flavio Girolami, the Common Project collections are rigorously Made in Italy with the finest materials and techniques.
