Superga Footwear: Stylish Sneakers for Moms

Share Button

When my husband is back home after two weeks away on a business trip (which is usually on a Friday afternoon), the weekend tends to be full on papi time! I log off (almost) everything and even if we are not doing anything exciting we do it all together — especially family walks!

It was the perfect time to debut my new Supergas — these red stylish sneakers. I’ve been waiting for The Shoe Hive to have them in stock and as soon as I saw they were in, I was over there in a flash. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: athletic/running shoes should NOT be worn for style. NO! They should be used for working out or running or whatever type of exercise you prefer to partake in.

If you want to rock the comfortable mama look, PLEASE go for the stylish sneakers option which will look great with shorts or jeans and even skirts! And yes, you guessed it, such as these red Supergas.

In my opinion they are better than Chuck Taylors, much more classy (think of them as the European cousin of Converse), comfy (way more!) and they come in a variety of colors. I have a pair in mushroom/tan which I’ve styled in a variety of ways and now these. Wearing shorts and striped shorts, these were certainly the WOW factor my outfit needed.

Remember: every outfit you wear should have one WOW piece. Shoes, bags, necklace, etc.

Really, how can you go back to your frumpy shoes after wearing these stylish sneakers?

Talk about real mom style — these are perfect for the playground, around the house, a play-date, shopping and going for walks with the kids. Come on, you know I’m right!

Oh and in case you are wondering, my daughter is wearing Mini Melissa shoes which are basically the new version of jelly shoes without the stink and much, much more stylish.

This post is about real mamas who have real style. While we all fall into the jeans and t-shirt rut we are encouraging our fellow moms to take the time to dress their best and rock it like the rock star moms they are!

Did you look especially good this week, were the other moms at the playground complimenting your outfit? 

Share the look that worked for both potty training, the playground and coffee with a friend and let’s inspire each other with some real mom fashion! This linky is hosted by Thrifty and Chic Mom and Very Busy Mama.

Welcome to my first ever DIY post! I’m really proud of this because after realizing that I don’t do much else other than write, photograph and make videos, I needed a hobby — another creative outlet that I could enjoy and have on-going projects for myself. After coming to terms with the fact that we are not going to have new or pretty furniture anytime soon, I thought, “Hey, I can fix these up!” As a child my mom restored some {Read More}

Mourning the Loss of My Shoes After Pregnancy

Take a moment, relax, breathe and close your eyes. Picture opening your closet and seeing your shoes lined up in front of you. See them? All colors and styles. Now, image taking every pair and throwing them away in a big black garbage bag never to grace your feet ever again. Cruel, right? Who would do such a thing?! Let me back up. Shoes. Zápatos. Kicks. No matter how gordita I got, or when my jeans didn’t fit, or my jacket wouldn’t close, {Read More}
