With sporting roots on the basketball court and baseball field and solid associations with music and youth culture, high-end sneakers have a definite energy and rebelliousness about them, something that you can integrate into your weekend look while remaining irreproachably stylish.

Don't be. Become.

COMMON PROJECTS

Clean Lines and minimal detailing give this streamlined pair a distinctly urban look and remind us that sometimes less is more.

The dark woven leather of these high tops brings to mind old-school gym shoes, although this pair looks more business class than spinning class.
