Video by Rose Anvil When I was growing up, it was my dream to own a pair of luxury Common Project shoes. It seemed like for a time everyone had them. These were GQ and Esquires golden boys of white sneakers. Now after this video, it’s pretty clear that anyone who buys these just blew an upwards of $400 for a nicer pair of Stan Smiths. Overall, there’s nothing that bad about buying a pair of these but if you want to save some money, just buy a pair of New Republic or The Greats sneakers. At least they have payment plans and you get a luxurious feel for cheaper. What do you think?
