Common Projects Achilles Washed Brown

    3/5,
    "Tighter fit than other CPs, color not for everyone"
    Pros - Same great CP aesthetic for the most part
    Cons - A bit tight width-wise compared to other CPs
    The washed brown effect is somewhat polarizing in person IMHO. I think they work well with casual summer gear and even jeans to some extent. But it's not as easy to throw into your look as the typical white CPs. I think if you like the color, these are great low-profile shoes as the gum sole blends in well.

    The laces that come with this model are round, not flat. I like the look, but you may want to replace them with flat laces.

    These fit a little narrower than other CPs, as the leather lining feels thicker for some reason. You may want to size up one from your normal CP size if you have a wider foot.
