Common Projects ‘New Editions’

November 10, 2011

So what do you do if you’ve spent years creating some of the best casual footwear out there and built a premium brand with an emphasis on unfussy design and quality materials? Well if You’re Common Projects you understand that your premium price stops you being accessible to many and redress that balance with a new diffusion line entitled ‘New Editions’.

This new range sticks to the sensibilities already established by the brand – the simplicity of silhouette, neutral colourways and subtle branding that have all become Common Projects trademarks. Where things start to deviate are in the models feeling more casual and instead of premium leathers most of these are made of suede or cotton canvas.

In addition to this is a new sole unit that from the images looks to be vulcanised and doesn’t have the checkered toe and heel detail of the old unit. The sole also carries the shoe’s branding (which is a reworking of the numbering system already used) which has been moved from the heal to a black rubber label at the rear of the shoe.

This range should be available for next years Spring/Summer season and the range is said to be coming in a more accessible price point. Thanks to Très Bien Shop’s blog for the heads up. For more information on the brand, go to the website here: Common Projects.

    At last, Common Projects at a price people will actually pay.

    Don’t look half bad either.

    It’s criminal how few places in London stock this brand. Even then, those that do have such a small selection too.

    It’ll be interesting to see what ‘affordable’ actually means too.

    When a pair of Achilles is around £270 now, these might still be well over £100 a pair. I still love their footwear though and don’t think there’s much out there that comes close.

      That’s the thing ain’t it. Their idea of affordable and everyone else’s probably aren’t going to be the same thing.

      Not sure I like the soles on these but it’s too early to tell really.
