I am not a sneaker guy, but these patent leather mid-tops from Common Projects are making me reconsider my stance. Not only are they super clean, but they are interesting without being gaudy. These shoes are actually made in Italy, and each shoe has an individual serial number completely unique to the pair you bought.
The shoe is beautiful, and this particular pair is on sale for about $160 bucks; which is good considering the quality of shoe you’re buying and that they are usually $268.
