The problem with Superga pumps

EDIT – It’s now 2018 and I’m back to loving my Superga pumps. They aren’t the most comfy for long walks but they’re fab for city life. Here are my latest thoughts – I plan to continue adding a couple of new pairs to my collection. 


Morning, I hope you all had a good weekend. I mentioned yesterday that I went to the gym, but what I didn’t get ’round to telling you about was the shoes I wore to get there (it was a bad day for shoes). I think I’ve said it before but I’m at my last straw with Superga pumps. They really aren’t very comfortable and no matter how much I love how they look I just can’t do this to my feet any more. I think I’m going to have to get rid of both pairs.

This pair were doing ok for popping to the shop, but any further and they’d really start to hurt my feet. About a month back I wore these Superga pumps and they got soaked in the rain. Not a good sign for any shoe but when this happens to my good old Converse I’ll pop them in the washing machine and then stuff them with newspaper and leave them to dry. Naturally, I did the same with these pumps but I got a very different result. The pumps became very stiff and i thought that they might ease up when I dare to ware them next. Nope. I walked to the gym in them on Sunday and my feet were very uncomfortable.

My navy pair are just as bad and after I wore them for 2 weeks in NY the material had come away on the inside. I persisted in wearing them but I’m coming to terms with the fact that I really need to let these shoes go.



Funny thing is, my sister bloody loves Superga and has had no problems with comfort. She wears the Superga platforms, I blogged about her shoes a while back and I still see her wearing them now.

Maybe it’s not Superga, maybe it’s my feet.

Have you had the same problems with Superga pumps or do you find them comfortable?
