Common Projects Autumn/Winter 2011 – part two
As the last post I did on this in February proved very popular (find that here), I thought it worth a look at more of the next Common Projects collection. It’s certainly a broad range as this second post should go some way to showing, so without further ado let’s have a butchers at some more of this lovely footwear.
There’s another colourway for the Achilles Premium, the standard version is once again available in navy blue with a matching sole and there’s also a version in a mix of suede and leather. The toe cap is back in leather and comes in both a low and a high, as does the Tournament, although for some reason the Tournament’s sole seems to come pre-distressed (well dirty), which would be cleaned immediately if they were mine, I don’t do dirty footwear.
As well as the new Duck, Ankle and Postal boots, there’s also a Chelsea and a burgundy high boot, both sitting on the new black sole unit. I think the lighter of the two Chelsea boots works really well, what with the matching elastic and sole contrasting well with the upper and the gold numbers setting the whole thing off. I’m not sure I’m quite at the Chelsea boot stage yet but if I was I’d be tempted with this interpretation of them.
So seeing the whole collection there’s certainly a bit of something for everyone, although as I’ve said before, they ain’t cheap. There’s one thing missing though – it’d be great if they brought back the simple white leather court shoe, it was a brilliant piece of footwear and one I regret not buying when I had chance, please bring it back…
