Fashion Advice for the feet…

I was looking through Zappos last night for some really cute sneakers to buy for the summer. I wanted something classic, chic and versatile. And then I stumbled upon…

Tretorn sneakers!

Do you remember these? It’s not like the line went away or anything, but Tretorn sneakers were HUGE when I was in middle school and high school. We’re talking back in the early 1990’s. They were that “must have” sneaker. When I saw them online, it totally brought me back. I used to have a pair that had a paisley arch on them that I LOVED. I would wear them with everything… even dresses and skirts. They were my favorite pair of sneakers and I wore those babies until they just couldn’t be worn anymore.

So… I’m thinking of bringing them “back into my life.”

I fell in love (well, shoe love) with these 2 pairs – a pink and a blue pair:

What I had forgotten about my Tretorn sneakers was that whatever color the arch, is also the color of inside the shoe! So classic. I just love it. Very feminine. Very chicly-plain… and I say this with all seriousness. They are so basic and plain, that they’re chic. I’ve gotta’ get myself a pair!

So this is one of my new loves… again – my Tretorn sneakers.

    I loved them too! I think mine were plaid. Paisley would be very cool though. I’ve seen that Tretorn has made a comeback and have totally considered it, but I recently got a pair of comfy Dr. Scholl’s with the gel insert. Let us know which color you choose – or are you getting both?!

    Wow what a blast from the past. I remember when these were so “in”. I can remember asking for them for xmas and back to school back in late elementary school 5th and 6th grade and just feeling like I “HAD” to have a pair!
