Just In: Man Repeller x Superga Volume II

Shop them now!

Just in time for spring (or is it summer?), the second set of Supergas by Man Repeller are ready for your purchasing pleasure if you are willing to call the act of purchasing one that is pleasurable. And if last season was a story about taking regal velvet off the head of the pope and stapling it onto the absolutely-quotidian-though-spectacularly-reliable tennis sneakers emblematic of the Superga brand, this season is frankly about the following:

a) Turning a ballerina upside down on her head and giving her slippers a run for their money with a pair of blush pink, satin rubber soled sneakers that come with extra long laces so you can still feel flexible and elegant, etc.

b) Forgoing the backs of some of your sneakers and raising a glass to the mules of yore, which are also the mules of today. They don’t transport drugs but they do harness dreams!

c) Looking at the muted yellow satin on both the mules and full sneakers through the lens of a fashion consumer as opposed to food consumer so that you see them as a flight of fancy as opposed to a flight of condiment. (This is a mustard joke, I realize that might not be clear). Also, seeing the blue satin sneakers as your denim cut offs’ bffs.

d) Trading last season’s metallic tweed for this one’s.

e) Leisurely walking.

Part of a collaboration with Superga.

    LEANDRA! This video and these shoes just made my day. They are seriously amazing, and I totally love the colors and the mules.

    Seeing that I used to be a ballerina until the age of 12 (or was it 13?), I think I am particularly partial to the ballerina ones. And today’s my birthday (18! Voting! Lotttery tickets!) so what better way to celebrate the monuments in my hum-drum life than to treat myself to a pair of those “pointe” shoes?

    Man Repeller REALLY needs to stop doing awesome shoe collaborations, though, because I have no idea how I am supposed to contribute to my college education AND my closet….and unfortunately right now my priority is contributing to the latter….?!?!

    It’s finally Superga time! I wore my bright yellow ones last weekend with a pair of cropped velvet sky blue pants. It had been pouring rain for five days straight so I made myself be that sunshine I had *literally* dreamt about the night before.

    Hey, Leandra. I noticed on the Nordstrom website your sneakers are called “Cotu”. Did you name the sneakers or did Superga?

    • Leandra Medine

      Superga — it’s their classic full sneak!

  • http://adeliberateimagination.wordpress.com/ CJKEYS2

    I CAN’T DECIDE WHICH ONES TO GETTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT.

    I love the idea of turning sneakers into ballerina shoes! The video was great, it sort of reminded me of the Clarissa Explains It All Intro! http://vimeo.com/12295073

  • Jordan

    Ah these rock! I like how you tied the laces. I had a pair of sketcher platform mules similar to these when I was like in 3rd grade… and now I am wishing they still fit haha. I guess time to invest in a new pair-AKA those blue ones up there. Love!

    They did such a great job on those videos — so cute.

  • Yeniva Figueroa

    I just bought a pair of classic white and wore them for a two week vacation through Spain and France. (I know, I know, poor me.) These really are stupidly comfortable shoes.

  • http://www.coolallure.com/ Cool Allure

    Your video was funny ! Superga are comfy but with your signature, they will be cool!

  • LD

    Why can’t i find these over a size 10??? Did you guys not produce them over 10? I’m going to cry. I bought two pairs from the last collection. Pleaseeeeee

  • Ilana

    what is the designer of the white lacey dress with the jacket over it?? i absolutely love it

  • http://www.twitter.com/somethingred_ Lauren DiPrenda

    I wish they all had the super long laces!!!

  • Lea

    I used to have a pair of hot pink Pony sneakers when I was 9 years old and ever since I gave them away (I know they wouldn’t fit now, but whatever) I’ve been dreaming about a shoe comparable to those sweet Pony kicks, and I believe you’ve just made my dreams come true. The blush pink sneaks are right up my alley and I.Cannot.Wait.To.Have.Them.On.My.Feet.

  • http://oo-meows.blogspot.com/ Christina Oo

    Ah this collection is the groooooooolest (via Mean Girls)! Meep, I’m torn between the olive satin and green velvet.

  • Benedetta Burchiellaro

    Lea, these are the “people’s shoes of Italy” but…they will ever actually come to Italy? I looove the ballerina ones, but already know will be impossible to get them here!! Loots of love to MR! ;)

    Congrats on the collection – super fab!

  • Suzanne

    I’m from the Netherlands and I’d love to have the yellow satin mules, but I can’t find a webstore who’s selling those ánd sending them to my country. Only Nordstrom (but they’re counting €130,- for them including shipping) and Superga US (which isn’t shipping to Europe). Any ideas/tips/help?

    • Leandra Medine

      They’re on Shopbop!

  • Anna

    WHERE IS THAT FRINGE SUEDE JACKET FROM? (Also, bought a pair from your collaboration the first time, and am doing so again right now – thx 4 helping me look kool.)
