Style Theory: Superga has so far alluded my trainer love-in. For years I have been wearing trainers but due to never trying on Superga in the right size I have never had a pair. However, as from yesterday that all changed, I was invited to visit the new stand alone Superga store in Guildford, Surrey and instantly fell in love with the entire range...it seems the celebrities have been fans for a while...
Chic, stylish and oh so Italian, this footwear can be worn with skirts, jeans, shorts or dresses. As they are less 'clumpy' than other trainers they are so much more flattering on the leg and are gorgeously comfortable.

The new Superga store in Guildford is a treasure trove, filled with every style, colour and size. From gorgeous pinks to berry to khakis and greys and, of course, my favourites whites and metallics.
|Superga Classic 2750 - £45|
|Superga Classic 2750 - £45|
From the palest baby pink to dark berry, the perfect colours for this Spring and Summer, entirely on trend and can be beautifully blended with this season's denims, whites and pinks.
|Superga Classic 2750 - White £45, Silver and Leopard print £50|
These are my three favourite styles, very classic, wearable, understated and chic. I chose the silver as it will look great with a summer tan and the white dresses I have earmarked for my summer wardrobe.
Superga Flatforms 2790 - White £50/ Green £55
I love the flatform style, I bought the white flatforms as they will be flattering on my legs, elongating them (much needed!) - I am imaging wearing them with a button through denim skirt and they will also work under a pair of flared jeans.
The green spotted style are a beautiful colour with a blue sheen creating a mermaid-like appearance would look fabulous with (fake) tanned legs and a denim, fitted shirt dress.
They also have an amazing array of kids Superga, utterly gorgeous, I bought my son a pair of the green velcro trainers...perfect for summer with little red and blue checked shorts and a navy polo shirt.

The Manager of the branch Tors and sales assistant Hannah were both incredibly helpful and have wealth of knowledge about the brand and fit. Whilst I was in there I spoke to customers, mostly my age who were Superga superfans, it seems once you are a Superga wearer it is hard to change and they were after more colours to add to their collection. I must admit I am quite smitten with my silver ones and Tors kindly offered to post my white flatforms to me when they get stock next week of my size...I am officially a convert.
If you live in the Guildford, Surrey area it is definitely worth visiting the branch as they have such an extensive range and stock. Full and half sizes (perfect for me being a UK6.5) are available, these sizes aren't stocked in the concessions and Tors and Hannah can guide you on the new styles, colours, the most popular and the style to suit your foot. A really lovely shopping experience.
I styled up my silver Supergas today in a classic way, with breton, blues and distressed jeans, perfect for the schoolrun or a stylish lunch with friends (it was cold so camisole vest and pop socks were worn too..attractive!)

Are you a Superga fan which colours do you own? Do you have other trainers that are your Spring summer must haves? As always I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions, until next time, Frances xxx
I was gifted the silver trainers and green junior trainers by SupergaUK (I bought the flatforms, I may buy the baby pink too!) all opinions and views are my own, I only review products I would and do buy myself.
