Sneak Peak: Tretorn unveil’s Andre 3000’s first-ever footwear collection

Swedish imprint Tretorn debuts the first-ever footwear collection by its creative director André 3000 dubbed, “I André Benjamin will not draw in class.”

The “I André Benjamin will not draw in class” capsule collection features 10 unique designs including updates to the classic Tretorn styles. The sneakers include versions of André’s classroom daydream sketches brought to life and the full range includes silhouettes inspired by Tretorn’s prep heritage with thick yellow and blue rugby-like stripes, purple terrycloth high tops, Velcro high tops, over-dyed and quilted materials.

“Growing up, we’d all put our personal stamp onto the blank canvas of the Nylite and I’d sketch out my own designs,” says Benjamin. “This collaboration felt like fun because it brought me back to that place of personalizing these original designs.”

Pricing ranges from $85 to $250 USD and it’s now available via Tretorn’s online store here. Select retailers worldwide will launch the collection in early December, followed by specialty and department stores in February 2018.


About Catiana Saillant

As a child, I've always loved music. From different genres such as Hip-Hop, R&B and Pop. Music allows you to be creative and express yourself the way that you please to. I've sought music to be a place where you can be YOU. You can dance, cry, laugh and do all kinds of crazy things to music. That is what makes me so passionate about what I do! My ultimate goal is to build a mainstream media platform that represents and supports culture such as paintings, music, film and provide empowering media coverage to my viewers.
