Sneaker champ Superga is following up their collaboration with The Row with another cooler-than-the-coolest capsule collection designer: Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller.
Slated to bow at the end of August, the kicks will come in low- and high-top styles in...velvet. Look forward to black, blue, burgundy, green and winter white, plus pairs with a metallic bouclé line in silver and gold. Each go for $125 to $160, but that price includes an extra pair of longer laces, so man repellers can tie them in all sorts of out there ways.
