Common Projects sneakers

Recommended Posts

What do you guys think of Common Projects? I'm thinking of getting a pair of white Achilles low. How is the quality and crafstmanship? I like the minimal look on these. My other options for dressier sneakers were Visvim, Lanvin and Prada, but I'm leaning more towards Common Projects.

there euro sizing is tough to figure out. I think it goes like

8US = 40 , 8.5-9 US = 41, 9.5-10 US = 42 , 10.5-11 US = 43

Flex, I think your conversion is way off. Its more around:

US 7.5 = 40, US 8 = 41, US 8.5 = 42, US 9.5 = 43, US 10 = 44, US 11 = 45

(give or take)

For reference I wear a size 7.5 in chucks and most of my CPs are a size 40.

not sure how you got that sizing moy. I have two pairs of cp achilles lows. Both pairs are size 42, I typically wear a size 10 US mens. I had mine shipped, just ask the employees they will be able to help you out with the sizing if you are unsure.

European shoe size conversion charts are available on many sites such as:

Since CPs run a bit bigger this may account for why you fit into a size 42.

According to my research, US 10 in Converse = 43 in CPs, but then again this is based on research only and I haven't really tried them on yet... need to get my ass over to Blackbird.

This is correct! I'm a US 11 in Converse and a US 12 in Adidas, and take a 44 in CP high-tops. Those general Euro->US sizing charts are quite useless since shoe sizing varies so much between brands.

I have the achilles lows/and the suede and leather highs. I normally wear a 10 and the 42 fits me perfect for both

wow, that scares me a bit. you sized down 2?? (according to moy's chart)

narrow or wide feet?

I ordered a size 40 and usually wear a 7.5 in converse, 41 in spring court. I have duck feet (short and wide), so i hope they work out. I hate it when shoes look too long... hope it all works out.

common projects have landed in philly via jimmy glenn, affiliated with izzo (formerly of stiletto), soon to open his own store in rittenhouse; i do believe his shoes concession is on the second floor of the izzo lifestyle store, guarded by garden gnomes

I think everyone is having confusion is because you are comparing to chucks which have the most fucked sizing in the first place. Believe me US10 = 42

Ok, I am just going to throw this in the mix. I have a standard size 10us foot, with standard size D width. I bought a size 42 in Common Projects Achilles Lo's, they fit snug lenght wise however they are very narrow shoes so there was no way they fit width wise. I sold them and got a size 43, the shoes are about a half size too long but they fit perfectly in width.

A size 43 in Common Projects Achilles Lo's will fit a size 10us with a normal width or a size 10.5us with a narrow foot.

i check seven quite often. i'm pretty sure i've never seen them in both of those sections. anyway i could be wrong...but usually am not. i could have sworn they're using the ked's lookalikes...
