Product Information for Tretorn

Product Description
Nylites, born in 1967, were soon regarded as the first luxury sports shoe. These canvas tennis shoes reigned supreme on courts around the world in the 1970s. With a distinct "v" toe shape and lightweight rubber outsole, today's Nylite maintains the same timeless design, but now boasts a variety of materials and colorways. The Nylite Canvas features a plush terry lining that provides sockless comfort. Traditionalists favor the tennis whites, but the color contrasting Gullwing logo offers a fun alternative.

Wears this shoe: all day
Fashion- yes, comfort- oh yes
By Shoes I Know, from Dallas, Texas | January 13, 2013
Have you ever had a pair shoes fit right and be cleverly neat? If not, then try the Tretorn canvas! Oh my Oh my! Every time I wear them I either get a compliment or a question about them. I am on my feet all day; standing, walking or running- and I have no complaints about doing it in these adorable Tretorns! Now as for my new set of acrylics- that?s another story. My charming Tretorns make my long work days a little more comfortable and I look fabulously clever too.

Cute summer canvas sneaker!.
By Kate, from Melbourne, AUSTRALIA | October 03, 2012
This is a cute canvas shoe. I have a slightly wider foot and it fits perfectly. I love the light blue, looks great with blue jeans, a nice alternative to white for summer.

Tretorn Nylites are awesome
By Elaine, from West Hartford, CT | May 17, 2012
I have annoyingly wide feet, so I don't wear good leather shoes much. Tretorns are the way to go, and I'm lucky enough to be able to wear them to work. They're colorful, comfortable, eye-catching. I can match them to a lot of my shirts. It's just a great walking shoe.

Unlike the original Tretorns.....poor quality
By Carolyn, from NC | June 13, 2010
I was disappointed when I received my Tretorns in the mail. I ordered the Navy striped ones. The shoe strings were cheap and very thin. The original Tretorns had nice thick strings that were durable. The new Tretorns were very thin, didn't have the original Terry cushion. The new ones were paper thin and were comparable to a cheap pair of Keds that could be bought at the dollar store. These shoes are manufactured somewhere else and the quality is not the same and not worth the money.

Not like the originals
By Rachel, from Chicago, IL | April 08, 2010
I had Tretorns in high school, and they were so soft and cushy. They had full terry cloth liners, and the canvas uppers were padded with a light layer of foam, and the terry cloth inside. I could wear them without socks since they were fully lined with terry cloth, and they never chafed. These new ones are not the same. First of all, the uppers are unlined. They are a single layer of canvas. Second of all, the insoles are very thin and flimsy, not comfy like the originals. Third of all, the padded collar is very lightly padded, unlike the originals with the thick padding and terry cloth lining on the collar. The tongue also seems very stiff and uncomfortable. The sole seems to be similar to the original. If you want a shoe for comfort or function, these new Tretorns look like the originals, but are not the same. Without the foam and terry cloth lining, the canvas uppers wrinkle and pucker, making the uppers look crushed. I just wanted these to walk around in, so they seem to be ok. They do require some breaking in, which the originals never did. Overall, they're stiff and sort of flimsy. I'm disappointed. I don't understand why Tretorn would bring them back, and change them so drastically. They should have just called them a different model name, and avoided the inevitable comparison.

Wears this shoe: Most times, but not walking- not too comfortable for that.
Mostly the same as old ones
By sds, from austin, tx | March 03, 2009
These are close to the classic tretorns, but not exact. The inner lining is not as luxurious, or cushiony. If you look at the lining, it looks like those cheap chinese made shoe linings. However, most other things are pretty similar.

tretorn tennis shoe
By Maria M., from Boston, Ma | November 09, 2008
I have been wearing the tretorn nylite tennis shoe for over 30 years. It's terrific for tennis or just walking around. It's lightweight, yet very cushioned. It is hands down my favorite sneaker.

These vintage sneakers are the perfect summer shoe. They are casual and look great with jeans, shorts, or even skirts!
