Superga Cotropew Sneakers

The Superga Sneakers Sizing Guide
The Classic 2750 and other non-flatform sneakers typically fit true to size. Flatform styles tend to measure slightly larger due to their 4cm chunky sole. Therefore, it is recommended that you go down a whole size when buying these styles. For example, if you usually wear a US 8, try a size 7 in your flatform sneakers.
As the brand is Italian, the shoes can sometimes show in European sizes. Use our chart to convert your size into US sizing.
For example, if you usually take a women’s EU size 38, you will need to buy your Superga sneakers in a US size 7.5.
How to Care for Your Superga Sneakers
While many Superga styles cannot be machine washed due to their heavy platforms or intricate detailing, it may be possible to wash your 2750 Cotu sneakers. Follow our step-by-step guide on how to clean your sneakers.
• Place your Cotu sneakers in a pillowcase, preferably the same colour as your shoes to prevent the dye from running.
• Put the sneakers in the washing machine, selecting a cool wash or a delicate wash at 77 °F or below. Use powder detergent (not liquid).
• Leave the laces on while washing to prevent the shoes from losing their shape.
• Hang to dry naturally.
- Are Superga sneakers vegan?
Some Superga sneakers, including the Cotu Classic style, are made using non-animal-derived latex glue, making them suitable for vegans. Other styles use vegan-friendly PU fabrics. To be sure you are buying vegan shoes, check the information on the product page.
- Are Superga sneakers comfortable?
Many Superga sneakers, including flatform styles, have cushioned footbeds, giving you a spongy underfoot feel on every step. Some are also made using cotton canvas, which offers breathable wear.
- Are Superga sneakers weatherproof?
Superga sneakers are not naturally waterproof, but you can use a protective spray to keep out the rain. Superga recommends spraying Crep Protect over your sneakers to help repel water from the fabric for up to two weeks. The treatment makes cleaning super easy and can be reapplied when required.
