In my book, a good pair of white sneakers is just as much a wardrobe staple as a little black dress. It’s cute, practical, and easy to wear while you’re on the go.
But, it all depends on choosing the right people. In my search for a pair that is as cute as it is comfortable, I stumbled upon the celebrity-loving brand Superga. The Superga has been around since 1911 and the brand says its 2750 has “been an icon from the start.” Once I saw the sneakers—and how many reviewers liked them—I knew I had to add them to my cart.
When they got to my door, I knew I had made the right decision. I immediately loved the classic look and clean lines. Plus, the fabric material felt perfect for the upcoming spring and summer.
What distinguishes Superga?
With the clean white material and tan sole, I loved the classic look the moment I slipped my feet. The shoes are supportive without being chunky, fitted without being too tight and show just the right amount of ankle.
Since I got my pair on, I’ve worn them just about everywhere: to the office, on a trip (they’re easy to put on and off for safety) and to the bridesmaids’ lunch. So it would be an understatement to say I got my money’s worth.
Plus, I’m not kidding when I say these shoes hold up! I was worried that the bright white sneakers might get dirty quickly, but I was pleasantly surprised. The dirt was easily wiped off and although there were a few spots, they weren’t really noticeable. Another thing I love is how comfortable these sneakers are. I feel like I can go for a nice long walk in it and be totally fine.
According to the brand, the rubber sole has a “crepe texture” meant to help with traction — and it’s actually effective. I recently walked in the park after it rained, and even though the stone steps were stained with water (I was typical of millennials texting while walking), never once did I feel like my feet weren’t firmly on the ground. Land.
Designers love Superga, too.
To get a better idea of how to style modern sneakers, I reached out to image consultant and stylist Christina Stein, who shared her thoughts on the brand’s classic look. “This is a company that knows their shoes and their comfort, so everyone trusts them,” Stein said. “I especially think it’s a very feminine looking sneaker.”
She also noted that while this shoe isn’t for everyone, it “goes back to the origins of what a sneaker should look like.”
When it comes to designing comfortable shoes, some people may be hesitant to pair a skirt and sneakers, but Stein says they’re actually really fun to wear together—and even the mixed collection is office-appropriate for a “chic casual” environment. “For summer in particular, if you’ve gone too short, try a really cool dress. Just a linen summer dress with a pair of tennis shoes or a skirt with a really fun pattern.”
I took her advice and paired the shoes with a skirt from my wardrobe, you don’t know – I loved the look. I felt collected, but casual enough to run errands or meet friends after work. If you choose pants, Stein recommends ankle length jeans or jogging pants to complete the look.
My pro tip is to wear no show socks with these sneakers. I chose a pair like these from Hanes that are very soft and somehow make the Superga sneaker more comfortable.
While some people may get carried away by the cost at first, I think they are well worth the price. “You spend the most time in your shoes and on your mattress, and it pays to invest in both,” Stein said.
Overall, I would definitely recommend these sneakers to anyone looking for a stylish and comfortable shoe that is sure to become a staple in the coming months.
