Common Projects Is Coming For Ya Neck, Hender Scheme

Protect your goddamn neck, Hender Scheme! Common Projects is comin' for ya! Okay, so nothing will ever compare to Hender Scheme's all leather perfection, but today is apparently the day we start calling Common Projects the struggle versions of something more high-end, so I guess we just got super paid without even realizing it. You can hit us up on the money phone. If you show up to The Rucker wearing these, an arm sleeve and hella finger bands, while keeping your Hender Schemes on ice, can you please let us know how it goes in the comments? Thanks. Deemed the "Bball High" and "Bball Low", Common Projects isn't being shy about the fact that these are just luxe ass AF1's and we fuck with that transparency. Common Projects ain't trying to change the game, they're just making it a more beautiful place.

    Here’s the problem with Common Projects:

    They began with a super minimal, beautifully constructed shoe – the Achillies Low. ( however…let’s not kid ourselves, it’s a paired down Stan Smith)

    It’s an instant classic…

    The gold foil stamp on the back becomes a calling card, a subtle way to let the world know you dropped $350 for a nice white casual sneaker. And it makes an impression without being too showy.

    But where do you go from there????

    Apparently, you knock off more classics, muddle the designs, complicate the once simple silhouettes and details, and as a result things start to go south.

    That new B Ball low is especially butt.

    I said fuck out loud 87 times when I saw these. Dope (not cliche dope).

    Navy sneakers are also a thing.

    In regards to the dude below me,
    The first time I saw the B Ball High I instantly thought it was rather cliche of CP to (in your words) “muddle” their clean aesthetic with a silhouette thats more complex and less of a classic style shoe. I thought to myself…”This isn’t what Common Projects is about man! Leave the trends to everybody else.” However, over time I thought more about the concept of the Air Jordan 1 (These are modeled after the AJ1 by the way for all the idiots who think they’re air forces or nike highs) as a modern classic and how the history of the shoe has become integrated into the culture that we live in today. Vans era’s, Nike dunks, stan smiths – we associate these models with classic because of the time in history they were created and worn. But the world evolves and changes over time and as such our culture must evolve with it. Common Projects is about taking the everyday norm and turning it into the best version of itself. Elevating the standards of the modern man by integrating classic style with a modern perspective and rigorous attention to the details and the B Ball high does that quite well. If nike never made another shoe besides the “cortez” the world wouldn’t have the air max, the air jordan, or fuckin foamposites for that matter [hype beasts cringe].
