I have always wanted to explore other aspects of the industry and I'm so lucky to have such an amazing brand supporting me on not just the model side, but also the creative, directing, and designing. Which is such a dream come true for me!’- BINX

Superga® is the iconic footwear brand for sports and leisure time that used the innovative rubber vulcanisation technology for the first time in 1911. Such technology was employed to create footwear for the mass market. The most popular model, 2750, has been produced since 1925: this is the first tennis shoe realized with a rubber sole. Today Superga® shoes can be fully defined as the “shoes of the Italian people”, due to their prestige and reputation.
Born in 1911 in Turin, Walter Martiny began producing rubber-soled footwear under the name Superga. By 1925 his designs had evolved with the use of vulcanized rubber soles and the Superga 2750 Heritage style was born. The iconic 2750s are now available through the very best retailers worldwide. The brand announced Alexa Chung as brand ambassador for their centennial anniversary and for Spring / Summer 2012 along with a collaboration with Henry Holland for House of Holland per Superga, which hit stores in May 2012. This was followed by the Spring / Summer 2013 campaign featuring Rita Ora, Suki Waterhouse and collaborations with
renowned designers Oliver Spencer and Giles Deacon the same season. Superga continues to focus on being a significant player in the UK footwear market.
