Born from Italy in 1911, the classic Superga court shoe has remained a go-to sneaker in the kits of celebrities and everyday trend setters alike. As a long-time wearer of the white court shoe – the brand has since expanded into a myriad of colour and style offerings – I can attest to the cult fascination of the humble kick. Rooted in minimalist style and maximum comfort, the coveted 2750 model has today, received a new upgrade.
As we continue to put spotlight on our own shopping and consumer habits, Superga has made it easier to tread lightly on the environment. Just as Superga is known for its simplistic look, so too is its composition. Before the invasion of plastic and for over a century, the classic 2750 has continued to be handmade with cotton, natural rubber and aluminium. Now, the Organic Collection has taken the beloved silhouettes one step further.
Keeping every detail of the trainer the same as the original 2790, 2750, and 2490 styles, the newly-released iterations are made from 60 percent organic cotton, 40 percent natural hemp, 100 percent organic thread, a natural cork insole and a 50 percent recycled rubber sole, all sourced from local suppliers.
The eco-friendly capsule ranges from $119.95 AUD to $149.95 AUD and is available to purchase in Australia from Superga.com.au and key retailers including The Iconic, David Jones, Glue Store, Platypus and Tuchuzy.
