Iconic Italian shoe manufacturer Superga joins forces with one of Norway’s most pristine illustrators, Esra Røise, and Blender Agency for a special collaboration. The iconic white shoe has followed Røise for years, and for got a colourful make-over for the special capsule collection. Røise states that there was a small degree of fear in joining forces with Superga.

–I mainly work in a two dimensional way with illustrating, so making a shoe design was a bit frightening, says Røise. But most importantly it was a fun experience where she got to challenge herself and the results are truly stunning.

The shoe design manifests Røise’s love for colour and brush-strokes, the precise pencil versus the light airy textures of paint. The classic Superga silhouette has been given a breath of fresh air and a pop of colour and is available from March 2016,
