Daily Crush: Nylite Canvas Shoes by Tretorn


The original Swedish tennis shoe is turning 50... and having a comeback!

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 Bjorn 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.
