As soon as i shed my hardcore allegiance to street wear i literally threw out my sneaker collection. My new found love for tailored clothing couldn't accommodate my sneaker collection, the pants were too tapered for the right sit. If you are a sneaker head you know all about how pants are suppose to sit on sneakers. Common projects, the sneaker company that got my sneaker
heart pumping again couldn’t have picked a better time to
grace us with their minimalistic approach to sneakers; from their clean
approach to design, quality and a silhouette that accommodated a much clean cut
wardrobe, they were a dream come true. Unfortunately, common projects price tag
is warm to account balances like mine and so our relationship remained online;
until I walked into Trenery and spotted the identical twin of my first love.
Trenery totally nailed the aesthetic that Common Projects has championed for so
long. These might not be of the same quality that the price tag of common
projects archilles model, but they are worth a decent life span of a sneaker for
me. The leather upper on the Trenery sneakers is really soft, after one wear I started
spotting creasing around the toe box. I have plans to beat these up and so the
earlier the creases the better; but I doubt I’d say the same if they
cost me 400 dollars.
