Over the moon with these shoes

What would spring be without «sneakerdrilles»? The combination of sneakers and espadrilles aren’t only comfortable, they also make you look taller.

I can't wait to swap my suede ankle boots for open shoes – and my feet, finally coming out of hibernation, will soon thank me with a healthy tan. But until the weather is right for sandals, sneakerdrilles are a great alternative. Sneakerdrilles – the result of sneakers and espadrilles becoming one – are as comfortable as sneakers and suitable for the office. My favourite summer sneakers are by the Italian shoe label Superga. What makes these lace-up plateau shoes so special? Read on to find out. ## Partner in crime

The model «Malibu» by No Name is also available in gold and silver.

Chameleon: No matter if you're wearing a dress, shorts, a skirt or jeans – these summer shoes are versatile and go with any outfit. The model with beachy rope detailing looks particularly pretty with linen materials, basket bags and straw hats and is sure to spread a holiday feeling, even in open-plan offices. Marine colours such as white and navy are also a great match for the current summer fashion.

All day long: One of my most important criteria for shoes that I wear all day is comfort. And these shoes are super comfy, as they have a rubber sole. I want my shoes to be suitable and comfortable when I'm rushing from one appointment to the next. If they don’t allow me to run for the bus or train, they’re definitely not for me.

Flattering: Are your feet and legs pale from the long winter? Sad but true: the lighter your skin tone, the less petite your legs look. Plateau shoes correct this effect by visually elongating your legs and making you look taller and slimmer.
