The Tretorn Nylite canvas tennis shoe, born in 1967, is regarded as the first luxury sports shoe. With Bjorn Borg wearing the shoe both on and off the court, and immortalized by 1980's The Official Preppy Handbook, the Nylite rocketed to celebrity status. This classic tennis shoe epitomizes Swedish minimalism, and continues its winning streak today. Natural canvas upper. Textile lining. Textile sockliner, 100% post industrial mesh.
