You know when you hear about something a number of times from different sources and it starts to stick in your head? This happened to me recently, and the “something” is a pair of Tretorn sneakers. The plain, white on white, all-canvas style. But, let me back up first.
It really started with my Superga sneakers that are sadly, not very comfortable. I think they are too narrow and I can no longer justify bandaids just so I can wear them. The retro, European styling is what got me to try the Superga, but in the end, comfort trumped looks and they have been shelved. When I started to look for new sneakers (I am not talking marathon-worthy or super tricked-out athletic) I realized that I still want a pair to wear running around doing errands in lieu of ballet flats or loafers.
The classic Tretorn has been on my radar to re-try. I grew up in Boston and they were the de rigueur shoe of my childhood. So, when KiC L.A. photographer, Agnes Baddoo, emailed me the above post from one of our favorite blogs, Tomboy Style by Lizzie Garrett, I knew it was a sign. I may even copy Lizzie on the cool laces.Lizzie Garrett, Love This, Tomboy Style, Tretorn
