Tretorn sneakers - Page 3

post #31 of 42
Shoes arrived, and at first, I was a bit disappointed. Colour and styling is good, but they looked quite chunky and plump. The toe is quite wide, and the rubber toe cap quite short, enhancing the effect.
I'll return them since they are too short but rather wide. Funny fit. It's really sad since after I looked at them for a while I liked them. One just has to get used to them being not as slim as Chucks. btw, they are about as comfortable as Chucks (which means I couldn't wear them without insoles).
I now think about ordering them half a size larger but I think the fit just isn't good for my slender feet. Quality-wise they look fine, though one has to keep in mind that I never really wore them.
Took some pics anyway cause I really liked the green/orange coulour combo and wanted to share:

^I like those. The colour is great. Shame about the fit.

My sister used to wear Tretorns back in the late 70s. With those little socks with the balls on the back. I like the Skanes (grey wool w/oxblood leather. and the nylon high-tops). I just need to find them locally to try them on.

So then..it'd be safe to say they're much wider than chucks? I love my chucks and JP's, but unfortunatly they aren't the most comfortable only because they're just too damn narrow...can my toes breathe in these?

yep, definitely. I'd also recommend going up another half size from your Chuck size.

they suck don't buy them... I bought 2 pairs within the last 6 months and now one of them has started to rip apart... did not use them heavily... additionally you can tell the quality of them is shitty... not super comfortable for sneakers, i had to put an extra pad in the foot to make them bearable.

I've been wearing a pair for work, involving lots of walking, for like a year and no problems. Also, I think they look best with my skinnier jeans since the soles are so low profile. And I had to size up for width, same as my Nikes.

holy thread revival Batman! As long as we're on the topic... personally I like Keds (Dinias) as an alternative to Chucks. Sleeker but same idea IMO.

I bought a pair of these on a whim the last time 6pm had a big sale.

I got them TTS without any problems. They're nice looking, though not the most comfortable shoe. I would buy them for 70% off retail again, but I don't think I would pay full price.
