In 1891 the first rubber footwear products left the original Tretorn factory also known as Helsingborgs Gummifabrik. As a brand Tretorn was registered in 1911. If you didn’t know the name Tretorn is Swedish for Three Towers refering to the original factory’s three towers and from what we know Tretorn invented the tennis ball. Tretorn also proudly carries a Royal Warrant, appointed by Hans Majestät Konungen, the King of Sweden.
Two years in the making, Sneakersnstuff can now finally show you the result. The Tretorn Tournament tennis shoe from 1956 gets the Sneakersnstuff treatment. It features GORE-TEX® lining, rip stop nylon upper, reflective 3M Scotchlite™ pipings, 3 sets of laces and a nice sneaker bag. Actually this is the first time ever a Tretorn product gets the approval to use GORE-TEX®.
Continuing to celebrate their 10th anniversary, Stockholm sneaker store Sneakersnstuff produced with Tretorn the T56 SNS GTX. Look out for a release on June 27th.
