the five point difference

Creating the perfect luxury sneaker for urban 20-somethings to wear as they mosey around their daily routines is taxing. Designing something original, on the other hand, is more difficult than consuming the just released news that the funnel cake at Canada's Wonderland is 1660 calories.


Just like how there's just a five point difference (what is the five point difference, anyway?) between Zara and let's say Celine, Balmain, Chloe, Isabel Marant, etc., these Marc Jacobs Classic Hi Top Sneakers are akin -- if not distant cousins -- to Common Projects' Achilles.

The design is muted, clean and the logo is coincidentally embossed just to the periphery of the heel. Just like the Achilles. Coincidence? I don't know. The only real deviation is that the MJ sneakers are designed with a cap toe. Cap toes are equivalent to square toed shoes.

The Common Projects Achilles takes the win and you can now enjoy your funnel cake.
