It has been some time since the fashion world embraced the sneaker as legitimate. In that time, countless brands and designers have tried their hand at creating the luxury sneaker. The worst of these efforts mangled both points of inspiration by grafting superficialities onto each other. The more successful results opted for an organic interplay between traditional luxury footwear and sneaker.
No one has made this approach their own quite like Common Projects. The brainchild of fashion industry veterans Peter Poopat and Flavio Girolami, Common Projects applies the traditional construction methods of luxury Italian footwear to timeless, simple silhouettes inspired by bedrocks of the sneaker world. The only branding to be found on Common Projects shoes is a gold stamped series of numbers signifying style number, size, and color. As the most complete expression of the luxury sneaker to be found, Common Projects speak for themselves.
