Common Projects is known for making the most well designed and smartly engineered sneakers available - leveraging the same intense quality of Dior, Lanvin, or Margiela - but eschewing the fussiness, and sticking more closely to traditional athletic shoe aesthetics. And now that Common Projects is as close to perfection as a high end sneaker can be - the only question is, what’s next?
The answer is in the New Editions collection. For this new endeavor, launching in Spring ‘12 at Tres Bien, CP focuses it’s sights on more casual sneakers, and imbues them with the fanatic devotion to quality and design that has pushed CP so far. Imagine comfortable, everyday sneakers that you can kick around in without a second thought, and add in subtle but key upgrades like Vibram soles, leather linings, and by-hand construction: New Editions keeps the pricepoint and accessibility of truly everyday and everywhere sneakers, but still elevates casual footwear far above the ordinary.
