COMMON PROJECTS ACHILLES LOW SNEAKERS
Common Projects is a collaboration between designers Prathan Poopat and Flavio Girolami. The emphasis of the brand is on fuss-free designs for shoes and trainers, with a less-is-more aesthetic. Quality leathers and hard-wearing soles are employed in the simple forms – the only superfluous decoration being the signature model number stamped near the back of the shoe. Common Projects shoes have a season-less quality that gives them added value in any wardrobe. Love the touch of black at the heel and that they stamp serial numbers on their shoes. Available here.

NIKE BLAZER VINTAGE MID BY JCREW
These Nike sneakers which were done via collab with JCREW are the perfect mid/high-top for women as they are so slender that they don't add bulk or weight. This color combo is perfect with white jeans! They also come in black and grey.
From JC: Because we're in the midst of a major sneaker craze, we had to have these hard-to-find sneakers from one of the most iconic athletic shoe brands out there. The Blazer was Nike's first-ever basketball shoe—it made its debut in 1973 and has been loved for its simple, versatile design ever since. And we think the sneakers that played an all-star position in the '70s deserve to be a first-round pick for your closet today.
Adidas' Stan Smith is a tennis shoe made by Adidas. However, nowadays, the shoe is not used for tennis, but as sneakers. Stan Smith is an American tennis player, who was active between the end of the 1960s and the beginning of the 1980s. Adidas approached him to endorse the so-called Haillet shoe in 1971. The all black with white Stan Smith on back are my favorite but seems like they are sold out in a lot of places! I would try on eBay or sites like suck to snag a pair. The all white with Green back were seen on many fashion week a-listers. Try here.
