Tretorn® Nylite Plus Sneakers is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable Classic sneakers and comfortable for all day exploring. Very happy with them, though they do run a little wide (wider than my Converse at least).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic White Sneaker Very affordable, comfortable, quality, easy, classic white sneaker. Doesn't take a lot of time to break in. I recommend water proofing with a spray first since canvas can be a little hard to clean. Overall, love it, great for end of summer into fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most comfortable sneakers ever! And the cutest as well. I wore it two times - it's like walking on clouds! These is very soft padding. I don't like true white color and the vintage white is a great alternative. I find them true to size. I usually wear size 8 and 8 in these is just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I love these shoes. I didn’t realize they were a cloth until I saw them in person and realized that they are the kind of shoes you have to focus on keeping clean because most of the shoe is fabric. Very stylish. Ordered a half size up based on other reviews and wasn’t sorry. I would order these again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An old favorite I wore Tretorns in high school. I wish I would have kept a pair from back then to compare with these, but I do notice some differences from memory: The old Tretorns had blue terry cloth on the inside. It was very distinctive. These don't. These new ones have something called an "ortho-light" lining which I don't remember from before, but I like it. Overall, the look and feel of these are really great. I know other people are complaining about narrowness but I have had no problems at all. You can walk for days in these- they're very comfortable and fit beautifully. If you're worried about sizing, keep in mind that these are European. I ordered an 8.5 which is 39 European and they fit nicely. I might even be able to get away with an 8.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too small I am a standard size 7 average width. I wear a 7 in most sneakers and in shoes or a 37. The size 7 was too small. My big toe hit the end of the sneaker but the width was fine. I returned them for the 7.5 medium. I hope they fit. It has been years since I have had Tretorns and I am very excited.
