We love our it-shoes – the vertiginous heels, the many embellishments they come with and sometimes, the impracticality that comes from wearing them. But on our off-days, we go for sneakers – particularly the Superga 2750’s which are also known as the “people’s shoe of Italy.” They’re lightweight, come with minimal branding and go with every outfit (trust us, it’s been tested). And whilst their latest collection with streetstyle aggregator Highsnobiety doesn’t reinvent the wheel of the classic 2750’s, it’s the finer details that make them just that much cooler.
Launched in four muted colourways for everyday wear, there’s a blue, peach, grey and light khaki – the former two ($179.90) in a hairy suede upper (a friendly tip from us when it comes to this surprisingly delicate material? 3M Scotch Gard Leather Protector Spray from Horme Hardware protects them from the rain) and the latter ($169.90) in a mixture of hairy suede and canvas.
And true to Superga’s minimalistic nature, each shoe comes with embroidery reading “Class of our Own” on its heel and the 2750’s shoe tongue features Highsnobiety’s logo on the underside. And if you’re packing it for your many adventures to come (we recommend a sojourn to Seoul this Spring), you’ll receive a co-branded dust bag with the purchase of the pair.
The Superga x Highsnobiety collection is available at Superga Wheelock Place #B2-04 and at Superga Changi Airport T1 Departure Hall East #02-K25.
