The History of Superga


This Italian brand has been around for over 100 years now. When in Torino, Italy, Walter Martiny first produced his vulcanized rubber soled shoes at the Superga factory, which was named after the Superga hill in Turin. In 1925 Superga first developed their 2750 model, an iconic style that has stood the test of time, still being a mainstay of the company to this day. In 1934 Superga expanded their collection to include a range sport shoes for Tennis, Basketball, Yatching and running trainers as well as casual shoes for daily life.
