The Tretorn Nylite men's canvas tennis shoe, born in 1964, is regarded as the first luxury sports shoe. A tournament favorite in the era when tennis stars made rock stars blush, and immortalized by 1980's The Official Preppy Handbook, the Nylite epitomizes Swedish minimalism, making it a favorite for nearly 50 years.

What other customer's have written:
I love these shoes, just as I did when I was growing up in high school in the 80s. I only wish that the canvas was thicker or more stiff as they were back then.
This is one of the greatest shoes ever made. Its's simple design, stylish look, and comfort make it a classic. The Nylite looks great with every outfit from shorts, to kahkis, to jeans. I get compliments all the time on this timeless classic.
