“We try to stay quiet and let the brand speak for itself,” say designers Prathan Poopat and Flavio Girolami. Highly coveted and beautifully made, Common Projects shoes—and Woman by Common Projects, its sister line—are practical yet luxurious, with intentionally low-key branding: each product is inconspicuously foil-stamped with the factory identification code and style numbers.

Highly coveted and beautifully made, Common Projects shoes—and Woman by Common Projects, its sister line—are practical yet luxurious, with intentionally low-key branding: each product is inconspicuously foil-stamped with the factory identification code and style numbers.  Merged with high-quality Italian craftsmanship, the result is minimalist, streetwise footwear that celebrates the wearer, not the maker.

There is: Common Projects. I may have only discovered the brand a year ago, but in that short time, the Achilles Low has become my favorite piece of footwear.

When I wear a pair of Achilles Low, I feel like a grown-ass man acting my goddamn age, yet youthful at the same time. But my affection for Common Projects isn’t simply rooted in aesthetics or their suitability to my wants: it’s a matter of principle.

The people at Common Projects don’t need to deceive consumers because the brand’s products do justify themselves: its popularity has spread despite an absence of flagship stores, and, for a long time, its owners spurned collaborations with other brands. When they do happen, they’re usually special makeups with retailers like Barneys or Tres Bien.

Common Projects’ sneakers are crafted from high quality leather in Italy, and although I’m well aware that they’re mass-produced in factories, they have an artisanal feel to them reminiscent of a bygone era. A time when things were made by hand, built to last, when substance mattered, and social media managers or branded content didn’t exist.

Because it was the first, Common Projects’ designers were able to claim the most minimalistic template as their own. Those that came after had to change certain details, distorting them so they don’t look like C.P. carbon copies, but that ruins the harmony of their designs. This contradicts the whole ethos of minimalism, which demands purity and perfection.

And while there are plenty of luxury sneakers that sit at that sweet spot between shoe and sportswear nowadays, what makes C.P.’s Achilles Low the very greatest, in my view, is its unassuming approach to luxury. Common Projects may make expensive footwear, but its designs don’t scream for attention like Buscemi’s nouveau riche monstrosities.

Above all, I like how the brand’s products present an acceptable face to consumerism. The fetishization of commodities is one of the things that nauseates me most about the modern condition, but Common Projects manages to do capitalism in a measured way that fits with my center-left political leanings.
