What I want – Common Projects BBall low

March 13, 2015

I tweeted about these a couple of days back and haven’t stopped thinking about them since. Common Projects call them the ‘BBall low’ and say they take their cues from iconic basketball footwear. Now I’m not going to argue that, but for me they’re mid-90s skate shoe through and through – think és Accel, Sal 23 etc. And that makes them very, very cool in my book.

Constructed from premium suede, the uppers feature leather detailing and are double stitched (another skate shoe cue in my book) with a padded ankle collar and tan leather lining. Flat tonal laces finish things off and the only exterior cue as to what the shoes actually are is the brand’s trademark gold stamp. The sole is the standard unit used on all Common Projects’ footwear but has the addition of a gum outsole (there’s that skate shoe influence again). They’re definitely missing a trick if they don’t supply a pair of white laces with these…
