Common Projects Leather Achilles Retro Low in White Leather upper with rubber sole. Made in Italy. Padded tongue. Additional laces. COMF-WZ10. 6039. About the designer: In 2004, armed with a desire to create the perfect sneaker, designers Flavio Girolami and Peter Poopat introduced a line of minimalist shoes to sneaker freaks around the world. Since the debut of their first collection, which featured only black, white, and gray sneakers, the line has grown to encompass more than your average laced-up low top. Today, Common Projects offers a range of colors, non-sneaker styles, and materials that are luxurious in look and feel.
