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.

Same here. Had a pair of these in tan suede late 70s, early 80s. Would buy another pair in a heartbeat if they were available. Always thought they were great looking, and they were among the most comfortable shoes I have owned.
