    I love common projects. Just not the dent they leave on my wallet.
    I snagged a pair of bone white achilles mids, for 250$...good price, yes. But steep for my wallet.
    Beyond CPs, my dream shoes would be the Wings+horns highcut leathers with the zip...but 400 isnt close to being any better.

    Im looking for more shoes- white, grey, black...simple colours and designs like CP, just easier on the
    pricepoint. Things I can wear with anything. Like tennis shoes.

    Im digging these:
    http://www.clae.com/Product.aspx?l=0...000&p=CLA01239
    & these
    http://www.clae.com/Product.aspx?l=0...000&p=CLA01232

    yeah, i kno. Clae isnt the best quality and such but right now I need quantity, so.
    any suggestions guys?

    Those are the limited edition Converse Leather Jackets. Retailed for $250 I believe and you'd be lucky to find one. I heard they have been sold out the first day of release.

    You can get them in fruitier colors. Sometimes I just feel like turning on my spezz and being a little outrageous with my blue or red BW's, or sometimes I am moody and more introspective and those days call for the teal or grey BW's. It's all about the spezz.

    I like my German Armys.

    For the OP: I think any sort of plimsol, as Teger mentioned, will give you what you are looking for. Also check out Adidas SLVR line of shoes. they have some slimmer profiles and a few of their models are on sale iirc.
