Daily Crush: Nylite Canvas Shoes by Tretorn

Born in 1964 in Tretorn's Swedish factories, the iconic Nylite was the first luxury sports shoe, and is still considered today as the "ultimate tennis shoe;" just ask five-time Wimbledon winner Björn Borg, a long-time fan of the brand. Though it celebrates its half-centennial this year, the Nylite hasn't aged a bit.

In fact, it has evolved subtly to defy the test of time: The canvas fabrication is much thinner and flexible than it used to be when your parents rocked it in the '80s, making it a shoe that's even lighter and comfortable to wear. The minimalist design now comes in dozens of color variations, easy to match with your outfit -- we recommend wearing them with a suit, to add a touch of nonchalance to your getup.

Meanwhile, Tretorn's trademarked Massage Technology insole still feels like walking on clouds. For once, your summer is guaranteed to be 100% blister-free.
