I’ve had a total shoe-boner for Common Projects for over a year now, they’re the closest to perfection I think you can get in a shoe. Well Blackbird has a sweet preview of their Fall/Winter 2008 line-up and one shoe in particular has my heart, the Achilles Mid Top in dark gray, the shoe you see above. There’s something about the all gray that gives me chills. I’ve seen a couple other shoes that were similar to this, but it’s the fact that even the rubber sole is gray that excites me.
Sadly, these beauties are
$516 $346, something I would personally never pay for a shoe, but if you have the cash just laying around happen to rob a bank, totally snag a pair of these perfect shoes.
