It seems to be a great day for Tim Coppens.
The luxury menswear brand from New York recently teamed up with sneaker brand Common Projects on an exclusive collection of footwear for Spring/Summer 2014, and it seems the collaboration was well worth the wait. I have to admit that even as a minimalist, I was never a huge fan of Common Projects but I can get down with these kicks.
The line features two styles, both variations of classic Common Projects silhouettes – a high top and a low top. Although I am a big fan of a good high top, I would stick to the slip-on sneakers, with a round toe and low-top. The design works much better on the low top than the high top; it’s just like sometimes you have to buy the shoe in brown leather rather than black just because it works better with that design. This is the same case here but at $725 you can make your bad fashion choices without me but don’t say I didn’t warn you.
