Getting your Common Projects sizing correct is an important part of choosing the perfect sneakers.

If you haven't met them before, allow us to introduce Peter Poopat and Flavio Girolami, the two guys who came up with the idea of Common Projects in an East Village, New York, bar in 2004.

You'd expect this heritage to mean that every pair of Common Projects shoes fit and feel exceptional, and you'd be right. Common Projects fit large to size so we recommend to take one size smaller than normal.  Although the numbers on the heel of each pair of Common Projects are true to European sizes, at Opumo we make it easier for you by also using UK/Australian & US sizes in the store.

We include a clickable conversion chart if you prefer other methods of sizing. By “large to size” we simply mean that whatever size is best for you – we always suggest that you take your finest-fitting pair of shoes as a guide –  then you should order a size smaller when you’re choosing your Common Projects footwear.


As with many artisanal footwear labels, Common Projects make their shoes in full sizes only, so if you’re usually a 9.5 go down a half size, for instance, and choose a 9.

Key points to consider:

Common Projects fit large to size. Take one size smaller than normal.

Common Projects are only available in full sizes.
