Tretorns Make a Comeback

A sneaker-fashion staple throughout the 1980s and late '90s, the classic Tretorn Nylite tennis shoes were some of the coziest, most cushiony kicks of all time. Thanks to a soft terrycloth inner lining, you could wear them without socks, and it was always fun to see what new colors and patterns (like plaids and paisleys) would show up on the side-swoop insignia. Until recently, the sneakers seemed to have vanished, but now Tretorns have resurfaced with new takes on Nylites and a number of other looks, including waterproof platform shoes and rain boots. Here are some of the best styles, all of which you can buy online here.

Nylite Canvas Sneaker, $60.

Bowler XC Wax Suede Sneaker, $90.

Two more, so

Tenny Leather Shoe, $75.

Karin Rubber Wedge Heel, $75.

The best part about Tretorns is that they are not as clunky as many other tennis shoes. They are so light that you can run like the wind, or the closest approximation to that one is capable of. Also, those cute little trims could be matched to different outfits. Yes, that might be a little bit much, but one has crossed that line by buying an outfit specific to tennis!
