Looking for a winter, leather type trainer, since I hate boots. Not sure I could justify spending £250 on what would ultimately be a casual pair of shoes however.
Anyone have any experience with Common Projects? Quality review etc.

I've had a chat to a few people at work about them and they all say they're the best trainers they have ever owned. Supposedly super comfortable, really durable and I can attest to them looking bloody fantastic in person.
If you've got the funds to drop on some, I would go for it.
I've owned a blue suede pair of the Achilles style (the exact same style you linked to up there) and I can only say they are superb. Super comfortable and durable, so I can only agree with William's friends.
I've got a pair of the white achilles style and they're hands down the best trainers I've ever owned. Not sure if they'd be suitable for a British winter though, personally I'd stick to some boots, but they'd probably be alright as the build quality is on point.
