Jeans and kicks are like bread and butter– good kicks will amp up a trusted pair of blues and vice versa. The maker of some of the best fitted and highest quality denim, Evisu, understands this sartorial concept and has partnered up with Common Projects (the label which has catered best to the mature and sophisticated man who still enjoys the comfort and nostalgia of sneakers) to create a new capsule collection of simple, unadorned sneakers that will go with anything and everything. The collection spearheaded by Evisu’s Scott Morrison, consists of low-top and high top models and come in uncluttered monochrome shades of Navy, White and Black. As of other common projects sneakers, the only adornment are some characters and numbers printed on the side of the shoe which not only serves as a brand recognition point, but also gives the kicks a minimalist, deconstructed look.
Bring quality back this year and let it shine through without fuss and clutter. The collection will be available in Fall/Winter 2010, and sign up for a notification to be the first to know when it is available for purchase here.
