Tretorn Rawlins History

Founded in 1891, Tretorn initially started as a tire manufacturing company. Its rich heritage provides the framework for its iconic status as a well-respected shoe manufacturing company.

The company began making 39,000 pairs of galoshes in 1892. This number increased to more than 200,000 pairs in just a couple of years. Aside from galoshes, Tretorn also manufactured hoses, bike pedals, and tennis balls.

In 1967, the first luxury sneaker was born in the form of the Tretorn Nylite. Soon after it was released, several other footwears were also launched. The list includes canvas sneakers, boat shoes, and leather and rubber cleats.

Among the popular sneaker models from Tretorn is the Rawlins. This classic looking sneaker is a nod to the brand’s heritage with a bold yet laidback statement.
