Summer Superga Trainers For Me and T-Rex
As soon as I saw Binx Walton and her silver Supergas I wanted them. I know, I am a total sucker for marketing and it seems (sadly) a supermodel wannabe but I do need a new pair of summer trainers. The fact that they were metallic sealed the deal. Since living in Peckham, I appear to have gone particularly bling-tastic and these little Italian numbers were just the ticket – enough bling, not too much booyaka.
The reason I was on the Superga website in the first place, was because at the end of last summer, whilst on holiday in Sorrento, I had seen a bunch of cool little Italian kids rocking their teeny tiny Supergas. T-Rex was too young for them then but fast forward almost a year and his rapidly growing toddler feet mean that I am replacing shoes almost every month. These little navy blue, velcro fastening numbers are what I found and the best bit is that they are so easy to do up that T-Rex can actually put them on himself.
So there we have it, the beginnings of a ‘must co-ordinate with my kid’ wardrobe. It is cute though.
