Superga: my favourite Italian shoes

27
by :

You’ve surely heard of Converse shoes, the American brand of basketball trainers. I have fallen in love with their Italian equivalent, a kind of trainer called Superga.

Superga trainers are great for both summer and winter. They are made of light canvas with a thick rubber sole. They come in countless different colours and patterns, for both women and men. I have three pairs now, one bright blue, one navy and one white. My favourite ones are the navy blue ones because they are so versatile. I have worn them so much that one of the shoes is starting to get a hole in it. My newest pair is white but they are very difficult to keep clean.

These shoes have recently started to become more popular in the UK but everywhere I look in Italy, I see someone wearing them. Italians really love to wear fashion items made in their country. The Superga brand also makes platform shoes, which are really in fashion among Italian teenage girls but not very trendy in Britain. They look quite nice on other people but I’m not sure I would wear them because I’m afraid that they would make my feet look big!

I started collecting Superga because they are so comfortable, perfect for a day standing up at work or for walking around a city. As well as the everyday style, you can also buy trainers with studs and glitter on them, to wear on special occasions. Whatever your style, Superga will have a shoe for you!

Note from editor: the shoes in the photo aren't Superga shoes, but they are quite similar!
