    Black, Minimalist, Common Projects Style Trainers. Where art thou?

    I am currently looking for a black pair of trainers with minimalist styling, but I simply cannot find a pair anywhere.

    I would love a pair that look like either of these from Common Projects and Svensson, respectively, but I can't find a similar pair in my price range (I don't want to spend more that 50).

    Does anyone know of anything similar? I am not used to buying trainers, but a black or white pair like these are timeless in my opinion.

    Cheers man, they are certainly similar to what I would like, however I am a bit picky and would prefer them to be real leather.

    I know Adidas and Converse have produced similar pairs, but I can't seem to find a style that looks right.

    I am such a trainer n00b.

    Checking eBay, Adidas Stan Smith's are selling for under a tenner. Reebok NCP's are similarly cheap.

    It's more a style I need to find that I really like so I can eBay to death.

    The Oliver Sweeney ones are awesome.
    I saw he/they have done a collaboration with Ollie Proudlock, and the black pair of leather hi-tops they have produced look awesome.

    I think I might actually change my mind and get a white pair of leather low-tops, and a black pair of leather hi-tops.

    I don't understand why it is so hard to find an affordable pair of minimalist trainers!
