Johan Dunker founded the Tretorn in Sweden in 1891 as Helsingborgs Gummifabriks. It was later on renamed to Tretorn to pay tribute to the original company's three towers. The company first ventured into manufacturing tires and grew into producing galoshes.

Henry, Dunker's only son, served as the company's only salesman. Through his efforts, the company grew exponentially concerning production. From 39,000 pairs of galoshes, the company started manufacturing 206,000 pairs in two years.

The company then started multiplying its inventory and included hoses, tennis balls, and bicycle parts. While many considered it strange, this product line helped the company to be noticed by the public. The brand eventually expanded its footwear iterations that could cater to a vast array of consumers.

The Tretorn brand has stayed genuine to their goal of promoting active everyday life whatever the season may be. To be consistent, the brand included dramatic silhouettes in their sneakers lineup, one of it is the Meg silhouette.

The Tretorn Meg is footwear exclusively offered for the women that provide easy to wear design that suits ladies who are always on the go. This kick is made of highly durable materials that deliver unparalleled comfort and support.
