Blue and purple versions of this modern classic will get your spring sneaker rotation off to a great start.
The Common Projects Achilles is the brand’s quintessential style—the one that started a whole streamlined sneaker movement way back in 2004. And you can never go wrong with the rich Italian leather version of the style in black or white. But in today’s bolder sneaker climate even the most minimal of styles are getting punched up via bright colorways. Just in time for spring, the Common Projects Achilles is debuting in these new soft purple and blue colorways.
These shoes still have all of that signature Common Projects minimalism—the low-top shape, and that solid upper emblazoned only with subtle gold numbers towards the heel—but they’re just what we need to shake this late winter funk. As we look to spring, a pair of Easter egg-looking kicks might be just the cure, even before flowers start blooming or snow even starts melting. Brighter colors are the name of the game across menswear, from Balenciaga’s highlighter-hinted sneakers to Gucci’s printed-to-the-max blazers.
But these blue and purple CPs are for the guy who doesn’t necessarily want to wade too far into the hottest trends of the moment, no matter what they happen to be. That’s because, despite their brighter colors, these aren’t sneakers you’re going to get sick of or have to see on your Instagram feed every day for the next six months. They’re the kind of sneakers that people will notice and actually have to ask you about, rather than recognize from a mile away. And trust us—they’ll own any spring holiday functions you have to attend with the family.
