For months now, I've been looking for a perfect pair of white sneakers that is understated, leather and comfortable. A pair that I can wear for long hours without getting my feet hurt and shoes that I can match with any style of clothing. My recent trip to Japan made me discover this brand. In such short time, the Achilles Low has become my favorite piece of footwear. It is classic and timeless -visually clean and aesthetically refined, shoes that's comfortable but could be dressed up. I'm happy that I discovered the brand. COMMON PROJECTS.
The shoes are made in Italy, stitched by hand and made from Italian leather.
Each shoe carries a serial number made just for that pair. Ten Gold numbers, divided into three sets, are stamped in gold on the outer heel of each shoe. Each set corresponds to a style number, European size and colour. This has since become the brand's signature and it appears on all of its shoes. It’s the only visible branding on a pair of otherwise perfectly clean shoes. However, the numbers aren't permanent. If you prefer a completely clean and blank look, the numbers could be rubbed off. ❤
