Common Projects

Common Projects founders Prathan Poopat and Flavio Girolami started their New York-based sneaker collection in 2004. Combining the street sensibility of American sneaker culture with the hand-stitched quality of Italian construction, the brand proposes a hybrid of casual and polished styles adapted to today’s creative lifestyle. The brand’s look is as modern as its origins: the founders, respectively an art director and creative consultant, designed the original Achilles sneaker from two different continents. Branded only with a gold numeric stamp at each style’s heel displaying its style code, size, and color, Common Projects’ minimalist yet timeless men’s high tops, low tops, boots, slip-ons, and derbys are eclectically suited to formalwear and streetwear alike.
