Superga Now in Houston - Exclusively at Cakewalk Style Shop

The Iconic Italian Tennis Shoe Is a Modern Classic and New Celebrity Favorite, Now Available at Houston's Newest Specialty Boutique

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Jan 26, 2012) - Cakewalk Style Shop located in the heart of Houston's art district adds to its select designer collection now as an exclusive provider of the iconic Italian tennis shoe -- Superga.

Cakewalk Style Shop, which recently opened its doors at Westheimer and Persa this fall, is currently the home to such designer accessory and clothing collections as Amanda Uprichard, CC Skye, David Lerner, Elizabeth and James, Linea Pelle, Mother Denim, Nation LTD, ROMYGOLD and more.

The Superga line, now available exclusively in Houston at the Cakewalk Style Shop as well as their online store, includes the popular 2750 Cotu Classic in a variety of colors as well as Lame in Gold, and Linu in Sand.

The Superga line, a favorite for generations, has recently made a comeback when Mary Kate and Ashley Olson, designers of The Row and Elizabeth and James, were named creative directors of the brand last fall.

The versatile tennis shoe comes in a variety of colors and fabrics. The distinct "Vulcanised" gum sole with side and back Superga labels further define its signature style.

"We're so excited to carry Superga in our shop. It's a fabulously versatile shoe that complements the jeans and sportswear collections we've selected for spring," said Cartwright, owner and custom jewelry designer whose Charmed Circle pieces are featured in the shop.

"The tennis shoes are extremely comfortable and great with spring dresses, shorts or relaxed summer suits. From classic white, subtle colors, and neon brights -- or a vintage wash you create over time -- they epitomize effortless style," said Jennifer Grigsby, cofounder of Cakewalk Style and "Closet-ologie" Consultant.

Developed in 1925 by Walter Martiny in Torino, Italy, the distinct rubber-soled Superga footwear began weaving its way into daily European life generations ago. Sports shoes with "technical attributes," the popularity of Superga grew beyond borders and today are featured in U.S. fashion magazines coast to coast.
