    I read recently that Chapeau! sneakers are made in the same factory as CP's and they are almost identical. Perhaps if you can't find info on CP you could on Chapeau! and follow that lead..

    I did some research on Chapeau! and also Common projects but didn't come a long way through internet.

    Does anyone else have more information on the production companies that make trainers with the same sole CP and Chapeau! uses?

    FAIK the sole is used by many sneakers; Android Homme and some other stuff, even some cheapo sneakers use the same sole.

    it's just common project, who cares it's made by italian or chinese or mexican. You are paying for the 'Made in Italy". As long as the shoes are comfortable and not trash quality.

    Doing a little shoe browsing, stumbled on the handle of the sole that CP, National Standard and a bunch of high-end sneakers use. They are Margom soles, manufactured by an apparently famous Italian shoe company called Margom. Some sources seem to indicate that the uppers are stitched to the sole, not just glued. Thought I'd note this here.

    the sole is great in terms of durability, possibly the best? Not very exclusive though. I've seen that cheap Asos sneakers use it from time to time.

    Hi I am interested in contact details for Margom as well. I am surprised that so many brands use them. They are so many high-end sneakers now with $400 price tags that appear to use the exact same sole component. It's slightly odd really.

    Google? Sorry what's that.

    No I actually was also curious about where the rest of the shoe is manufactured. I know the soles are Margom, as are everyone else's. It has become a bit of a default which is a shame when you are dropping $400 on a pair of new wheels.

    It would be great to learn where the tops are made though, as the leatherwork and quality is superb.
