Superga Sneakers

The Superga 2750 Cotu Classic is the definition of fashionable sportswear. With a lightweight and breathable cotton upper, the trainer is casual and light. The upper is combined seamlessly with the vulcanised rubber of the sole. Although we wouldn't recommend you do any strenuous sports in them (the technology for sports trainers have come a long way since 1925) they are still a timeless fashion piece for any man.

Superga 2750 Cotu Classic White

If you're looking for the most classic style you can find, then look no further than the Superga white sneaker. In keeping with its roots as a tennis shoe, a Cotu Classic in white is a great way to make any summer outfit that little bit more stylish.

Going to any summer parties this year? Why not try and wearing your trainers with a loose white Oxford shirt and some dark chino shorts. The contrast between the colours is a great way to bring some balance to your look whilst keeping your style simple and summery.

Superga 2750 Cotu Classic Black

No one would blame you if you're apprehensive about wearing a pair of all white trainers. It can be tricky to keep white trainers clean, and no one wants to be seen wearing dirty trainers. Black trainers, on the other hand, can withstand a lot more dirt before looking visibly dirty, and this can be pretty handy.

Team some black Supergas with a pair of joggers and a T-shirt in the same colour for a great casual look. By combining colours you can create a great sense of uniformity in your look. Accessorise with a watch and a hat if you want to add some detail.

Blue trainers are a great alternative if white or black is a bit too traditional for you. It's good if you want to mix things up whilst still having a pair of shoes that will combine well with most clothes.

Wearing a light jacket with a pair of skinny tapered joggers is a great way to create a smart casual look. Chuck a plain white T-shirt on underneath for a nice ensemble. If you want to accessorise the outfit, you could easily add things like sunglasses or a hat.

Superga 2750 Cotu Classic Grey

If you want a nice slick alternative, then grey trainers are a perfect middle ground between white and black. They're a nice way to tie a monochrome outfit together. They aren't too in your face but still offer a stylish and refined element of detail to any outfit.

Try combining them with a pair of smart chinos for a standard look. Layer the top half of your outfit with an Oxford shirt and a jumper. If it's particularly cold outside then you can add a dark overcoat to bring the outfit together. Finish the look with a grey hat to create a connection with the shoes.

Superga 2750 Leather Trainers

If you want to try out something new then why not give a pair of leather Superga's a try? Although they are less traditional, it doesn't make them any less stylish. In fact, if you're purchasing a pair of Superga 2750's specifically for a formal or smart casual outfit, then a leather material may be the way to go.

Try combining them with a pair of tan chinos or suit trousers and a white dress shirt. Accessorise with a nice watch and you'll be ready for any party. If you want to make it even more formal then layer up with a blazer or sports jacket.

History of Superga

In 1911, Walter Martini established the Superga brand in the Italian town of Torino. From here, they set out to make a collection of rubber soled tennis and sports shoes. However, it wasn't until 1925 that Superga made the shoe that would ultimately place them in the history books.

The Superga 2750 Cotu Classic was one of the first trainers to use vulcanised rubber in its sole. This made it more durable and meant that it would go down as one of the most iconic sports plimsolls of all time.
