Good to know

The satiny character of the low-top Tretorn Marely 4 made it appear delicate when taken side by side the traditional Tretorn silhouette. Its thinly padded interior tends to make this shoe appear larger than earlier Tretorn variations. The soft canvas lining is breathable and allows the feet to rest comfortably inside. This sneaker with a customizable, full lace-up closure, is available in women’s sizes from 4to 12 in B (medium) width.

The satin finish on the Tretorn Marley 4 puts a powerful feminine tone to the usual Tretorn style which makes it a fab option to add to your sneaker stash. Its adorably chic surface effortlessly blends with a variety of lifestyle outfits from spring dresses, slim pants, to colored and floral shorts.

The full satin finish on the Tretorn Marley 4, with a noticeable rubber toe bumper, gives this sneaker its distinct character. Its lightly padded interior and gull wing logo that’s outlined on the side walls put a touch of sophistication and feminine glow to this Tretorn Marley iteration.

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.

  • The lace-up front comes with cotton, flat laces.
  • Its six-paired eyelets come with a glossy pink finish.
  • The canvas-lined footbed provides comfort and breathability.
  • The textured rubber toe cap ensures protection on the satin front.
