I wore my first pair of Superga trainers back in the 90s. They were light blue and super cute! Mummy R&R, ever the fashionista, chose them, but because I was a rebellious teenager, I didn’t want to wear shoes that she had picked out.
Little did I know that decades later, these Italian tennis shoes would become a global fashion phenomenon. I’m well on my way to acquiring a stable full of these beauties!
A few weeks ago, I bought my first pink Supergas. My impressions after the first few weeks of wear? They’re a dream to walk in, fit with literally EVERY outfit in my wardrobe and are suited to a wide variety of situations. I’ve paired them with pencil skirts, dresses, Chinos and denim. I’ve worn them to work, to the park, and to a restaurant on date night! I can’t believe I ignored Superga for so long. Unlike Converse chucks which are flat and feel like you’re walking barefoot on the pavement, Supergas are super comfy due to their double insole and arch support.

The mariniere look; white denim and Breton stripes, simply isn’t complete without a pair of white, classic tennis shoes.
‘Sprezzatura’, the Italian art of looking good without trying, works a charm with Supergas!

A bevy of celebs loves Supergas: Alexa Chung, Michelle Obama, Chiara Ferragni & Liv Tyler.
