You know cafe culture is strong in Singapore when even an Italian sneaker brand is jumping in on the action — Superga just announced that they’re teaming up with homegrown bakery, Tiong Bahru Bakery, for a capsule collection of three limited edition sneakers. This marks Superga’s first collaboration with an F&B institution.
As expected, motifs of Tiong Bahru Bakery’s beloved handmade croissants make their way across the shoes, all high-top designs. The first sees these croissants scattered across a cream canvas upper, and paired with tonal laces and eyelets for a minimalist vibe; a second pair features embroidered patches near the back of the shoe, while Tiong Bahru Bakery’s signature green is seen on the rubber soles, as well as on an aztec print located at the textured back bumper.
For the third and final design, we get the most subtle shoe in the collection, of a glossy aztec print on pure white canvas — this is, however, complemented by an engraved metal bread tag attached to the laces, for a neat reference to old-school bakeries.
To mark the collection launch, an immersive Superga X Tiong Bahru Bakery cafe experience will be unveiled at Superga Takashimaya S.C., where the first 60 customers may receive a complimentary croissant and juice on 13 November.
$119.90 each, available from 13 November 2021 at all Superga stores and online at SUPERGA.COM.SG.
