Italian/American minimalist footwear specialists Common Projects never disappoint with their ongoing reinvention of the sneaker. Here's their second drop for SS15, featuring trademark gold branding to the heel, with size and style code, and, as always, showcasing the finely-honed skills of Italian craftsmen.


Original Achilles Low Dark Grey

The Achilles silhouette has become the signature of what Common Projects is all about. The first design that Prathan Poopat and Flavio Girolami created, the Achilles is featured here in low cut, crafted from stealth dark grey Italian Nappa leather with matching rubber cup sole unit. Lining and insole are in leather. These are sneakers that are designed to get even better with age.


White Achilles Premium Low Canvas

The Premium Low Canvas is new for SS15 in the Common Projects Achilles Low silhouette. Canvas uppers in crisp white contrast with natural leather to the lining and insole. Premium sneakers get no more minimalist than this, and they're all the better for that. Quiet luxury that speaks of hours of craftsmanship.


Achilles Retro Low

Bold in black Nappa Leather, the Achilles Retro Low is another take on the Achilles silhouette, and it's new for SS15. A contrasting white patch provides a flash of individuality to the heel, and white rubber soles lift these sneakers above the everyday. Lining and insole are in leather. Happy with both formal and casual occasions, these are sneakers for life, long life.

The latest drop from Common Projects for SS15 is available now here at Opumo.
