Tretorn is a global shoe manufacturing company that has its roots from Sweden. Despite its long history in the industry, not many know that Tretorn was the second company to release the famous rubber-soled footwear we now know as sneakers.

The company was founded in 1891 by the Dunker family in Helsingborg, Sweden. At first, the company was known to manufacture galoshes for farmers. This footwear serves as protection for the farmer’s feet against the harsh Scandinavian weather. 

Because of the innovative nature of the galoshes, the business quickly took off.  And by 1986, only 5 years after the birth of Tretorn, 1 million pairs of galoshes have already been produced. As a result, the company grew from 52 employees to more than 500.

  The first Tretorn sneaker

1990 marked a new era for Tretorn as it produced its first ever sneaker. It was also in the 1990s that the brand launched its first rubber cleats. 30 years later, another breakthrough for the brand came in the form of its canvas sneakers. These became a global phenomenon and almost instantly cemented Tretorns name in the sneaker market.

Today, Tretorn has released a significant number of sneaker models with varied styles and color options. In fact, in 2005,  it has won as the sneaker brand of the year for a Swedish fashion magazine. The company also collaborated with other famous brands.

One of the crowd-favorite models is the Blaire 7. Unlike the first sneaker, it has a platform sole that is designed to add a bit of flair to any outfit.
