So you've found your perfect pair of Common Projects sneakers – congratulations! But before you race to the checkout, you're going to want to ensure you're buying the correct size. Which is where we come in, with our comprehensive Common Projects sizing guide. First things first though – allow us to introduce the brand...
The Common Projects story
The idea for Common Projects was dreamt up way back in 2004, by New Yorkers Peter Poopat and Flavio Girolami. The pair saw a gap in the market for minimalist luxury sneakers that could bridge the gap between smart and casual. They kicked off their range with the Achilles, a sleek, understated sneaker that has garnered a cult following in stylish circles. Fast forward almost 20 years, and Common Projects' sneakers are as popular as ever.
How to wear Common Projects sneakers
Common Projects' clean, minimalist aesthetic lends them inherent versatility and timelessness, meaning that they can be worn with just about anything – from deconstructed tailoring (at a summer wedding perhaps?) to casual weekend attire. In winter we style them with raw denim jeans and a slouchy overcoat for an effortless off-duty look, and in the warmer months we love them with chino shorts and a breezy linen shirt.
Common Projects sizing notes
- Common Projects shoes generally fit true to size, so take your normal size if you have wide feet.
- Common Projects shoes can sometimes run large, so go down a size if you're between sizes or have narrow feet.
- As with many artisanal footwear labels, Common Projects don't offer half sizes and make their shoes in full sizes only, so go down to the nearest whole size if you usually take a half size.
- Common Projects uses European sizing, so be sure to use our chart below to convert from US and UK sizing.
- Note that your new Common Projects sneakers mightn't feel the most comfortable on the first few wears as they're made from premium Italian calfskin. Be sure to give yourself time to break them in.
