    Other than being white I'm not seeing much similarity...

    I may have exaggerated a bit. But I wouldn't call them boring, simple is a better word IMO. I cant think of a shoe that is as similar as the summer achilles CP's from last year....not that I have looked very hard.

    Sounds like someone has the pictured CPs and is feeling very wronged. Oh so very wronged.

    What do all three shoes posted so far have in common? They're all ugly.

    Man, I'm all for CP ripoffs. Fuck $400 simple ass sneakers that crease worse than retro Air Jordans after you put your feet in 'em.

    ...That said, I've wanted the last version of those CPs in the original post (without perforated leather) pretty bad -_-.

    I'm not saying this in a bad way but you could say the same thing about many sf-approved sneakers.

    Not sure if they are worth $400 bills, but I got my pair of CPs for a little less then $270 on ebay (vintage low navy summer achilles). You can find common projects ranging from 200-300 dollars if you look hard enough brosef. http://cgi.ebay.com/COMMON-PROJECTS-...item3a65a7ae65 (these are going for 185 right now for example). I still think they look similar, but to each his own. Edit: Changed the common project pic cause I just pep'ed it was the perforated leather one.
