Common Projects built its brand around minimalist design and high-end Italian craftsmanship. The CP Achilles Low is still a grail sneaker for many sneakerheads, and with good reason—the leather quality, craftsmanship, and silhouette are all top notch. While Common Projects haven’t exactly rested on their laurels, most of their other offerings still follow the same ideals that make the Achilles Low great. That is, until now. Enter the New Track sneaker. Last year CP released a chunky sneaker as well—the Track Vintage—but that still had a running shoe’s shape. The New Track is lower and chunkier, a far cry from the sleek lines of CP’s biggest hits. But it still has the DNA of their staple product lines: the shoe is constructed of buttery premium nubuck and mesh, and the brand’s trademark “series number” stamp asserts the clunky sneaker as one of Common Projects’ own.
The sneaker is currently only available in an ultra-clean white or murdered-out black, but the Common Projects site has pictures of 3 other colorways that we’ve yet to see in the wild. Our pick right now: the murdered-out black version.
The Common Projects New Track sneaker is available now at SSENSE.
