Runny Knows

Italian imports are up. Mozzaralla and gelato; Mario and Luigi; and now, Superga sneakers and new Superga Kids.

Classic, comfy, and cute to boot, the tennies have been known in the old country as the people’s shoe for molti years; now, they can be your people’s shoes.

The straightforward colors and simple styling will run your bambinis right through summer. Put them on day in and day out and know that crayons, dirt, spaghetti, and meatballs will all come out in the wash.

Now that’s amore.
