The 2750 Heritage, the shoe style Superga are best known for, isn’t looking to bad for being over 100 years old. Born in Turin, Italy in 1911, the shoe and also the brand have built up a loyal and stylish following, from Ryan Reynolds to Guy Ritchie and Alexa Chung and the Olsen Twins have all been spotted sporting the vulcanised rubber soled footwear.
Ohhh and its not just style conscious Hollywood A-listers that are getting in on the act. Last year to celebrate the brand’s centennial anniversary Henry Holland launched a collaboration of unique shoes that only the House of Holland could dream up. to keep that momentum a flowing the brand have worked with one of Clothes-Make-the-man‘s favourite designers for Spring 2013, Mr Oliver Spencer. The refined collection combines Oliver’s modern aesthetics with Superga’s timeless styles. Reflecting on the collaboration, Oliver Spencer commented:
“The concept behind the collaboration is to be something that is very clean with a feeling of luxury. I wanted to show the brand’s versatility through modern day inspirations. The shoes represent a bridge between sport and luxury.”
Marking the first ever menswear collaboration from Superga, the Oliver Spencer per Superga collection combines colour blocking, brushed nubucks, premium shirting material and retro gum soles with a modern twist. Oliver’s play on textures and colour combinations creates a clean, minimalist look giving the iconic 2750 a deluxe makeover.
