Everyone has their favourites. Although some of us identify more with the classic Common Projects Achilles Low or the ever-versatile Chelsea Boot, there is a hunger for a new pair of Common Projects growing inside us all. But it’s not all about minimal, clean lined leather sneakers or the classic tonal colours associated with Common Projects, as the brand’s latest selection of AW18 sneakers shows that there is a whole other dimension to Common Projects footwear for you to explore.
Featuring new colourways and all-time favourite silhouettes, the drop retains everything that originally made Common Projects such a trailblazing force in the world of men’s sneakers alongside a few added extras. So, check out a few of our favourite new styles below and shop the entire collection here.
These Dark Grey suede adaptations of the Common Projects Bball Sneaker is one of our particular favourites not only because it represents the label’s luxurious, minimalist aesthetic thanks to its soft suede uppers, tonal rubber sole and signature gold branding, but it also represents the perfect break-away from the ongoing ‘ugly’ sneaker trend. Plus, the sports-inspired details of the Bball low – the slightly larger stature of the sneaker, the perforated toe cap and the discreet side panelling – look all the better thanks to the beautifully rich grey colour hue. Which also means, they’ll go with everything in your wardrobe from denim to tailoring to sportswear.
Common Projects are always good for introducing a new colourway that inevitably takes the entire world by storm – Blush and Brick can lay claim to that specific crown in years gone by – and we believe that accolade will be taken up by Rust this year, too. That’s because, where Brick and Blush have successfully laid the path down before it, the new Rust colourway makes the understated details of the iconic Achilles Low look all the better courtesy of its unique soft suede textured body and warm terracotta colourway. It makes the signature gold serial number shine all the brighter, too.
This one is easy to explain, really. These sneakers not only look good – in the way all Common Projects Achilles Low Sneakers do – but they are also better suited to the upcoming colder climes of winter as they are a little bit easier to maintain. Plus, the sneakers' muted neutral colour hue will work with pretty much every other colour in your working wardrobe, including khaki, greys and blacks, so you’ll be sure to get a lot of wear out of them.
