Good to know

The Tretorn Nylite Fly sneaker would, of course, utilize the signature traditional lacing as that of the OG Nylites with a bit of an elevated feel courtesy of the revamped midsole. The rubber outsole is also thick enough to provide plush cushioning along with an EcoOrtholite sockliner for a more heavenly feel.

The sizing for these Tretorn Nylite Fly women’s shoes generally ranges from 4 to 12 with the inclusion of half sizes. It is sufficiently padded along the collar to accentuate the hugging sensation around the ankle.

With the proliferation of the Adidas Falcons, Yung-1’s, and the Puma Spectras in the sneakerhead fandom nowadays, other non-gigantic brands like Tretorn would surely capitalize on that dad shoe trend. The shoe of their choosing would most certainly involve one of their prized possessions called the Nylite.

The Tretorn Nylite Fly pays homage to the iconic tennis silhouette’s design specifically called the bicycle stitching stretching from the toe to the upper’s collar. What’s super fly with this iteration is that it uplifts the previous low profile look with a chunky midsole to stay relevant with the somewhat ridiculous clunky trend.

There are several iconic accents that the Tretorn Nylite Fly possess which belong to the opposite sides of the brand’s style timeline. Both of these features are noticeable from afar, to say the least. First one would be the ever-so-popular Gullwing logo along the vamp. The second one is the plumped up midsole, which resembles a structure close to that of the Nike Monarchs.

In its rich, century-old heritage, Tretorn had been continuing to cater its loyal fanbase with iterations that take hints to its early tennis years. In 1967, the Swedish company introduced a silhouette that would forever tinge not only the tennis footwear market but also the lifestyle department.

The Tretorn Nylite has initially been a competitive tennis shoe when it was released in 1967. It gradually penetrated the lifestyle scene after a couple of decades due to its inclusion to the Preppy Handbook, which catapulted the sneaker’s fame more.

Still staying strong after 120 years, the Swedish footwear brand celebrated their prestigious glory days in 2012. The highlight of the display would, of course, be the Nylite. Multiple colorways were introduced with the OG dark blue Gullwing flaps heading the pack.

With a replenished niche and a steadfast vision to change, Tretorn continues to flourish their portfolio with upgraded designs to their previous silhouettes. One of the newest versions to surface the fashion stream was the Tretorn Nylitefly--a dad shoe version of the classic tennis shoe.

  • The sneaker’s upper is composed of canvas with a leather wingflaps logo.
  • A toe cap is found on the nose of the sneaker connected to the durable rubber outsole.
  • EcoOrtholite sockliners provide plush underfoot comfort.
