Stuck in an endless debate on the virtues of color, material, brand, cultural allegiances and street cred, those deliberating their next sneaker purchase often find themselves at an impasse. Our vote goes for the classic and simple, especially when it comes to a worthwhile investment like Common Projects' Achilles mid-top sneaker.
A collaboration between designers Prathan Poopat and Flavio Girolami, the Common Projects' Achilles mid-top perfectly exemplifies the brand's criteria, with the stylish rise, uniform gray color and stitching, supple Nappa leather base and signature model number stamp. One look and it's clear this season's sneakers are altogether seasonless, making the choice, at least this time around, an easy one.
