Tretorn Nylite

We’re a big fan of light canvas sneakers in any season, but it’s near-pointless to recommend any particular brand because there are just so many good ones: your Chucks, your Jack Purcells, your endless parade of plimsolls. As long as it’s white, canvas and around $50, it’s hard to go wrong.

In that vein, we’d like to draw your attention to one of the more overlooked options, the Tretorn Nylite. It’s been a favorite since the Preppy Handbook days (no, the original Preppy Handbook), and the split-toe construction still looks pretty sharp set against a sea of shell-toes. Just don’t be afraid to get a little dirt on them.
