cheap alternative to Common Projects?

post #1 of 64
Thread Starter 
Is there a poor man's version that is close to the design? Specifically the Achilles low in white.

Sorry if this has been answered before, a search didn't bring any relevant thread titles up.

I've only seen them in canvas so far; I own a pair in blue and unfortunately they are a bit too wide for me. Also, they are a little chunky - aren't CPs sleeker?

SO true

Some Keds look decent and like CPs are based on classic sneaker designs

But there is no cheap CP alternative that is rendered in luxe leather and designed w/ the careful restraint such as CPs are. if there were such a thing, CPs would have no market

Is there a specific shoe it is based on?

There is none as synthetic leather will look like utter shit within months. Not even those Addidas listed below looked all that great. Profile was not where near as nice.

This is about as close as you are gonna get right now.

A few years ago Adidas did these:

245

You won't find a pair. Shame they don't bring them back.

Supergas in leather are pretty sleek. They are wide for me too though.

Which is a shame - it's a fine looking shoe.

I thought Achilles were actually based on OG One Stars?

not my size though... still, a search for Adidas clean brings up some nice shoes.
