Good to know

It seems like thickening up the soles of women’s footwear would make someone hip at the concurrent time and Tretorn went with the flow with their Tretorn Nylite 8 Bold. Thickening up the tooling not only provides plush cushioning but also softens every step. Rejuvenating the uppers with knit textiles adds to the heavenly feel not to mention heightening the classic’s breathability.

The Tretorn Nylite 8 Bold is for women who are looking for a platform appeal in a traditional lace-up enclosure. The ladies can choose a pair of these elegant and dandy silhouettes starting from size 4 to 11, including half sizes.

Since Puma Creepers had dominated the catwalk scene way back in 2015, the platform sneaker trend continued to flourish in the subsequent years. Among the brands that competed for the footwear market’s audience liking was Tretorn with their newly improved Nylite shoe.

The Tretorn Nylite 8 Bold reinvents the classic look of the Gullwing-embellished old schools and gives it an elevated look. To top that off, knitted uppers were also introduced to the now renovated platform sneaker which should blend well with sundresses and skirts for the summer look.

These Tretorn Nylite 8 Bold platform shoes can casually be sported with skinny jeans and pants or joggers to bring out a sporty vibe. 

The basket-weave-looking uppers of the Tretorn Nylite 8 sneakers are the huge factors for bystanders to turn their heads on them. From afar, the sneaker usually boasts a platform sole to add height to the user.

Though Tretorn, which is Swedish for “three towers,” had been around for more than a century, its name still stays relevant to recent days thanks to the acquisition by Authentic Brands Group in 2015. Its most popular model as of date would be the Nylite which was born in 1967.

The Nylite traversed its way from the tennis courts to the lifestyle scene in the past few decades and was still staying active due to a loyal cult following. Numerous variations of the iconic shoe had been witnessed throughout the years, including high tops and enticing colorways. Going feminine was also an option for these shoes courtesy of the Nylite Bold.

One of the innovative redesigns of the platform sneaker was the Tretorn Nylite 8 Bold which replaces the traditional canvas uppers with a knit material atop a thick synthetic outsole.

  • The lace-up enclosure includes metal eyelets for smooth snugging along with a classy style.
  • Additional comfort is administered by the EcoOrtholite insole.
  • The interior is lined with textile.
  • Colorways include Rosado/Cream and Insignia/Black.
  • It was initially released with a retail price of $95.
