MUTHAFUCKIN’ MAN REPELLER FOR SUPERGA IS HEEEEERE!
Oh shit. MR’s Superga Collection part deux has definitely been an anticipated arrival (at least here in the office, where one particular employee has been waiting down to the very second for them to go live) and now that it has, we’re in lazy heaven.
Not too long ago, a dude commented on a certain instagram post featuring a pair of flat sandals, that “All the higher class ladies where sky high and you don’t see them around much cuz they are among a higher class reality”. When I read this, my first reaction was an automatic and guttural cackle. My second was “joke’s on you, bro. You don’t see it that often cause ladies don’t really give a shit about breaking their ankles to impress the likes of you”. I feel like this comment is the very essence of how the Man Repeller came to be and with that said, let’s just rejoice over these SUPER COMFY, SUPER FLAT, SUPER CASUAL sneakers.
Suck it, bro.
Ahhhh, the sneaker mule. Some said it wouldn’t fly. They doubted it, called it heinous even, but here we are. Assumedly inspired by the ultimate in laziness – trying to get your foot into your shoes without unlacing them, therefore resulting in the back folding under and you saying ‘fuck it’ and just wearing them as slides – these are all that greatness with even less effort. I, for one, am all for it. Plus, it’s taking two things that are like totally trending right now (mules and sneakers, obv) and combining them into one perfect ‘ugly’ shoe, but made in a gorgeous satin for you know, balance or something.
The basic sneaker. But wait! There’s more! The pink one should probably always be worn with ballerina style lacing, because well, why the hell not? In order to extra man repel, one must go above and beyond. Also made in a like really high quality, extra fancy satin, so you are now permitted to wear these with things as formal as ball gowns, or as informal as denim cut offs. Your choice.
And finally, the metallic sneaker. From afar, it looks like some really excellent cross hatching (art class, anyone?), but up close, it’s a lush tweed woven with flecks of silver and gold metallic. So like, eeeeextra fancy, you know? It’s the best of mixing everything that is comfort and casual with looking uber regal at the same time. That’s how it works, you can’t be all regal – too much pressure for everyone else around you – but, you can’t be too casual either – because then how will you know you’re not just still in bed? (trust us, it’s happened before – cue, ‘It was all a dream’ in Biggie’s voice)
Oh yeah, and they made this rad video that you should watch:
