Established in Helsingborg, Sweden, the legendary brand Tretorn was founded by tire manufacturer Henry Dunker. Tretorn is Swedish for "three towers" and is a nod to the design of the company's original factory.  Moving away from industrial goods, the company refocused on footwear for Sweden’s growing workforce. 

By the 1970s, as tennis shoes became a favorite of players at Wimbledon, the brand evolved further into sporty, lightweight shoes anyone could wear. Tretorn takes inspiration from its Scandinavian roots and carries that spirit of vitality into all its footwear, from durable rain boots to sporty sneakers.

Today, Tretorn shoes include a range of casual and classic styles crafted with the same dedication to quality Henry Dunker envisioned over a century ago. Tretorn sneakers use innovation to drive both practicality and design in all its footwear. One of these innovative Tretorn shoes is the Rawlins 3 that features a retro revival style with a vintage, sporty feel. These sneakers will ensure that you are both comfortable and stylish for any activity.

  • The rubber sole also allows for easy flexion of material.
  • A soft tie provides a firm footing for the sneakers.
  • Tretorn details are placed at the midfoot and the insole.
