Best of Their Breed

Common Projects

I wear a suit about 5 days a week. I wear these sneakers about 3 days a week. There’s some overlap there. Sneakers with a suit isn’t a particularly new look, especially given the moment performance sneakers are having in the menswear community right now, but to me these are the best of their breed.

Designing something that’s complicated and original is hard, designing something that’s minimal and original is really really hard. Check the box on the latter when it comes to Common Project’s Achilles model. The lines are so clean that they have the sort of sculptural qualities I usually associate with dress shoes, which is the reason I think these work so well with tailored clothing. Add the green detailing, a little Stan Smith homage, to put these over top. Favorite sneaker…period.
