Noted for their minimalist approach, New York’s Common Projects is arguably the foremost name in simply designed luxury footwear.

Founded in 2004 by Peter Poopat and Flavio Girolami, the duo set out with a captivating ethos of combining sleek footwear with a utilitarian design focus that was married together with unfaltering Italian craftsmanship utilising only the finest materials.


This design focus is wholly apparent in their latest collection for Autumn/Winter 2015 which features a slew of new and updated designs. Collection staples such as the Original Achilles, B-Ball Low and Achilles Low get premium makeovers utilising tumbled Leather and Nubuck respectively, whilst hybrid models such as the Achilles Premium High and B-Ball Retro High showcase an alternative side to brand’s much loved sneakers.


Finishing the drop are brand new styles such as the Combat Boot and Cadet Derby with strong military influences as well as a considered reinterpretation of the Slip-On Leather, all of which are backed up in a raft of well adjusted hues and finishes.
