Common Projects

Common Projects got its start in the mid-90s with designers Prathan Poopat and Flavio Girolami from New York and Italy respectively. The two would continually bump into each other at downtown fashion soirees where they would talk about their likes and dislikes in fashion and began collaborating on projects together hence the name Common Projects. One of the discussions was about the lack of grown-up classic sneakers with great craftsmanship so they decided to make their own. The philosophy of the brand is to 'let the brand speak for itself' with clean, low profile designs for shoes and sneakers with a minimalist aesthetic. Their classic Common Project sneakers, Achilles, has a clean, simple design with an inconspicuous foil-stamped factory identification code and style number that sets the brand apart. Girolami and Poopat tapped into the need of men who want to have well-made trainers that they can incorporate into most aspects of their everyday wardrobe - not just the gym. Women too have begun using minimalist sneakers in the off-duty shoe rotation. Common Projects have been spotted on the likes of influencers, including Kanye West, Jay Z, Ellen DeGeneres, Nick Jonas and Alexander Skarsgard to name a few, Each pair of sneakers is crafted in Italy using only the best leathers and soles that mold to your feet giving over to a look of well-worn crafted leather shoes. Their shoes not only cover the cult favorite, Retro Achilles sneakers for men and Original Achilles sneakers for women but they also have expanded to include a line of chelsea boots, oxfords, wallets, and bags all with the foil stamped id. Common Projects shoes and its sister line Woman by Common Projects, are street-wise urban chic that compliments the savvy wearer, not the designers.
