reviving a pair of classic sneakers from czechoslovakia
the super special trampky (sneakers) were born in the central modeling department in former czechoslovakia back in 1951. when mariel and hristo, founders of the ‘super special sneakers’ brand, came across the technical drawing of the iconic shoes in an old factory, they decided to bring them back to life. the company makes sure that the nostalgic footwear design is still produced on one of the oldest sneaker production lines and features the same great choice of materials. older than most mainstream brands, the revived ‘super special sneakers’ now celebrate their 70th anniversary with a new model.

a timeless design that evokes memories
the shoes’ distinctive vulcanized outsole is paired with a minimalist upper on the low top urban 1.0 model celebrating a simple, yet classic design that ‘builds bridges, breaks boundaries and proves timeless’ as the brand mentions. enhanced with modern features, the sneakers still evoke memories from the past. returned from the dust, they are a classic piece of european sneaker history that outlives its time and function.
