Tretorn Marley 4 History
Tretorn was established in 1891 which initially concentrated on tire fabrication before it transitioned into utilitarian, and eventually, athletic footwear production starting in the early 1900s. It became an industry forerunner in tennis shoe construction since its drop of the Tretorn Nylite in the late 1960s.
The understated appearance of its star tennis shoe with an easily identified gullwing logo, grew into a popular profile off the court in the 1980s, especially among teens who espouse the preppy style. Back then, apart from K-Swiss and New Balance shoes, the Tretorns were widely associated with those who can afford high-quality goods and lifestyle. Further creating a buzz for this brand are prominent individuals such as Farrah Fawcett, Jackie O, and Billy King who openly supported its modest appearance.
Today, the classic Tretorn gets reimagined through the use of different fabrics and colors to keep it relevant and fashionable. The Tretorn Marley lineup made up of low-top and high-top variations contain some of the stylish reinterpretations on the simple, straightforward Tretorns. The fourth installment is offered with a satin finish and textured rubber toe bumper for enhanced protection.
