  • #SupergaAtLovebox

    18th July 2017

    We partied with some of our favourites at one Lovebox as they served up some pin-able festival style inspiration before dancing the weekend away to Chase & Status, Solange, Annie Mac, Frank Ocean and Sampha (to name just a few!).

    Pals Reece King and Benji Colson brought their own game to the fields of Victoria Park.

    Reece's grungey vibes saw him pairing sand workwear chinos with a pair of 2750 Cotu Classic in taupe - the perfect way to balance heavy grunge with lighter summer shades.

    Benji's wardobe choices see him dress a little more relaxed and a little more streetwear, but no less sharp. Black on white on black on white, Benji's denim jacket toughens up his white jersey sweatshirt while his black 2750 efglu leather Supergas toughen up his sportswear track pants.

     

    The girls schooled us in all the best ways to wear denim at a festival!

    Sarah Halpin, Joanna Halpin and Yuki Haze opted for relaxed, off-duty vibes, which helped prove the 2750 Cotu Classic really is a staple shoe in every colour on the spectrum, from classic white all the way round to total black!

    Comparing Samuel Harwood and Ryan Barrett's looks to Benji and Reece proves that fashion trends still exist in menswear.

    Sam and Ryan paired their bomber jackets and clean cut jeans with two tennis inspired classics, the ever versatile Superga 2750 Cotu Classic in white, and the new Superga Sport Lendl in white, a sleek but comfortable choice for a day on your feet dancing in a field.

  • The Royal Trendsetter isn't Kate!

    13th July 2017

    It looks like Kate Middleton is not the first Royal to fall in love with Superga, proving the royal-approved shoes really are timeless.

    The Daily Mail has discovered that the original trendsetter in the Royal Family was in fact the Duchess's mother-in-law, Princess Diana!

    The article reports that Diana was seen wearing a navy pair of 2750 Cotu Classics during her trip to Angola in 1997 then aged 36.

    Creating the ultimate nineties outfit, the Superga trainers were worn with a pair of stone wash jeans and a navy double breasted blazer with gold buttons.

    Fast-forward to 2017, and Kate hasn't been able to take her white 2750s off, wearing them during her trip to Canada, at a London Marathon event, and even in GQ Magazine.

    The Royal Seal of Approval truely does belong to Superga!

  • Get Ready for Summer!

    9th May 2017

    It may feel like it's taking its time, but summer is slowly on the way!

    Superga is currently filled to the brim with stunning new styles. From the colourful new additions to the Superga Sport collection to the eccentric Patternity collaboration, and let's not forget the recent addition to our much loved Superga metallics, the Violet Lilac Cotmetu.

    It can be difficult deciding which shoes are going to be your summer staples, so we have narrowed down a few of our favourite styles from our new Spring Summer collection to help.

    Starting with the bright and bold Liberty Fabric printed Superga 2750 collection, these floral prints are perfect to brighten up any outfit and will definitely grab you some attention. If your outfit is lacking and needs a little help, make these floral printed low top shoes your statement piece.

    The 2750 Cotu Classic is the ideal shoe to have on holiday, whether you are exploring your way through new city streets or simply moving from the sun lounger to the bar! Comfortable, breathable, in our strong cotton canvas, and with our signature vulcanised rubber sole - there is a reason the 2750 Cotu Classic has been our best selling shoe for over 100 years!

    Take your style poolside with one of our most talked about colours, brand new for the season - Orange Clay.

    Warm in colour yet soft in shade, Orange Clay is here to add an extra summery detail to your wardrobe without any hassle. Colour block with more statement shades, or go subtle and colour pop by matching it to your nail polish and lipstick.

    Our 2750 Cot3Straps are our most easy-going shoes yet! As well as hitting the menswear velcro trend, the natural shades of our cotton canvas allow these versatile trainers to work with pretty much everything in your wardrobe, making these the perfect shoe all summer long. 

    Available in NavyGrey Vapour and Military Green

    If you're looking to become a bohemian goddess this summer, our espadrilles are your ticket to style heaven. Espadrilles are in high demand this season, so we could not be more excited to put our Superga-twist to the iconic rope shoe!

    Step up your game in our 2790 Flatform Cotropew collection. Available in White, Navy or Black, the rope espadrille sole, 4cm platform and our classic shades will give every outfit that holiday day-to-night vibe that you have been searching for.

    When the sun comes out - put down the jewellery and instead reach for our metallic coated linen Flatforms. The rope espadrille sole will sync with your summertime vibes and the metallic shine will do all the work brightening up your look. Available in Rose, Grey Silver or Beige.

    Adding to our ever growing Superga espadrille collection, we have even given our Classic 2750 a rope-wrapped makeover!

    Embrace a true holiday spirit wherever you are in our 2750 Cotropeu shoes. From works-with-everything White to under-the-sea Green Aqua, your favourite summer dress will thank you.

    We are a firm believer that shoes are the key element to make an outfit, but you need the perfect accessory for all your festivals, vacations and weekend trips! As our classic Superga 2750 Cotmetu metallic shoe is one of our Superga favourites, and a staple in our wardrobes, we have given our 2750 rucksacks the Cotmetu treatment.

    Shine in the sun with the 2750 Rucksack in Silver or Rose Gold, and why not match it all up with one of our metallic Superga shoes.

    When the sun is shining hot and you've got big plans, you'll know comfort is key when picking your outfit of the day. Forget the heels (the ones you're going to kick off under the table anyway!) and pick up a pair of 2790 Flatform trainers instead.

    To our much loved classic tennis shoe shape, we have added a 4cm chunky sole in our signature vulcanised rubber, giving you a little extra height. Our Linea Up Down collection features our classic cotton canvas - looking at you, Grey Seashell - but this season, for those office days while you dream of the beach, we have brought you a sophisticated suede. Give our on-trend Nude shade a try.
