Common Projects

When Common Projects – the ongoing collaboration between Prathan Poopat and Flavio Girolami – first launched in 2004, there was no such thing as luxury sneakers. With backgrounds in industrial and graphic design, the duo set out to create a casual shoe made in Italy out of the finest leathers whose sleek, minimal design allowed them to be dressed up or down.  It was a revolution that has reshaped the luxury footwear market and helped usher in a more relaxed, elegant mode of dressing.
