The Prize: Common Projects Off White Summer Achilles Trainers

As mentioned above, these trainers come in strictly limited numbers, and are a special edition for spring/summer 2012. Common Projects only make premium trainers, and these are definitely no exception. Made in Italy using only the finest leather, they are beautifully constructed. At an RRP of around £260, you are going to expect something special, and these don’t disappoint – the detailing is second to none.

Minimalistic in nature, the trainers ooze quality. They have perforations throughout the main upper, which makes them suitable for the warmer spring/summer seasons, whilst there is also tonal suede trimmings in specific sections. Both of these combine in order to give the trainers a tactile feel and sense of luxury. The off white colour way is also a really subtle way to stand out from the crowd of stark white trainers, whilst losing none of their desired versatility and timelessness.

Key Features:

  • Low-top perforated leather sneakers in off-white.
  • Tonal suede trimmings throughout.
  • Round toe.
  • Tonal lace-up closure.
  • Padded tongue.
  • Gold tone logo print at outer side.
  • Tone on tone stitching.
  • White rubber sole with textured foxing at toe and heel.
  • Upper: 100% leather. Sole: 100% rubber.
  • Made in Italy.
