Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved Supergas! I owned a red and white pair, and I loved how they matched every single outfit that I owned. I pretty much wore them all the time except for when I was raiding my mom’s closet for her 70’s clogs and sandals which are now en vogue again!
Interestingly enough, reflecting back to when I met my husband, I knew he was a keeper because on our first date he wore a pair of navy blue Supergas. We walked all over Manhattan getting to know each other in our matching shoes. My girlfriends have even told me that at a dinner after my first date I told them that I had met the man whom I was going to marry. I have no recollection of saying it, but it was true. Sixteen years later we still both rock our Supergas while walking, cycling, working – now even our three kids are hooked on them!
For years when I lived in New York City, people stopped me on the street to ask me where I purchased my shoes. By this point I had moved beyond the Classic Cotton 2750 in solid colors to the more creative prints: floral, leopard, geometric. I even owned a pair of exotic skin Supergas once! It was then when I knew that I needed to open a small shop and bring these iconic Italian shoes to my community.
Now that my kids are self sufficient (enough), I feel that I have more time to embark on this adventure. I live, work and walk in San Francisco in my Supergas; they are a staple part of my lifestyle. I KNOW that all of you will love these shoes not only because they are stylish, affordable, and comfortable but because they suit our SF lifestyle completely.
I can’t wait to welcome you to the shop so that you can see which Superga fits your look and your life.
