They look an awful lot like fancied up Supergas. Prefer classics.

^no. pretty sure the entire sole doesn't have layers, meaning its one, solid consistent color throughout...that's just how it was molded.

Really don't like that extra lip running around those new achilles :confused:. The extended tongue doesn't do much for me either...

edit: on a positive note, im digging the ivory colorway and the contrasting tan leather lining

Those look really bulky. I guess that's a good thing for the winter though.

They look so... big and clunky. Glad I just got my original white lows on sale this past season.. not feeling those

Don't really like or dislike them compared to normal achilles...

Beige ones look nice, perhaps white too, may pick up for during a sale. Any idea on what the pricing on these are going to be? I like the brownish leather for the interior.

I don't understand the bevel effect. Looks like they've been subject to a tragic parasitic worm attack. Sorry, not a fan :confused:

I'm torn about this, on the one hand the design is less clean (I thought the point of Common Projects was an 'invisible' design to some degree), whilst I'm told the leather and overall quality is nicer.

Plus the more I look at it, the more I get used to the bevelled lip and extra-stitching.

Hmmm.

edit: what's pricing like?

The tan ones look dank as ****, too bad these are probably gonna carry an even bigger price tag.
