When you picture post-war Italy in the 1900s, you may think of destruction and devastation. But for Walter Martiny, it was an opportunity to bring back pride to Italy. Unfazed by the disruption WWI had on the Superga shoe brand he founded in 1911, Martiny retooled his factory in Turin and developed the classic 2750 Heritage style. The 2750 was established as the People’s Shoe of Italy and became an icon instantly. It featured a low cut style to show off more of the ankle, and was designed to be worn without socks. Young Italians took quickly to it, dressing it down for a relaxed look or dressing it up for a well-dressed look. It took Italians from city to beach and they loved it. The Superga 2750 remains in the brand’s line today in a new range of colours, fabrics and prints as the label believes in keeping the well-loved, best-selling lines in stock for its fans.
