Andre 3000’s Tretorn Sneaker Line Has Finally Arrived
The rap vet recently teamed up with Tretorn to launch his own line of sneakers. Retailing from $120 to $150, the NYLITEXAB and NYLITEHIXAB2 come in a variety of colors for men and women.
“The collection of shoes are come to life versions of these type of classroom daydream sketches,” André said. “Directly from my sketchbook and into the magic hands at Tretorn, we have created the ‘I Andre Benjamin will not draw in class’ capsule collection.”
According to Tretorn’s site, the collection was inspired by André’s personal connection to the shoe as he was growing up in Atlanta.
“From André’s original sketches to the completed line, the classic Nylite has been infused with the style icon’s playful spirit and design sensibility,” Tretorn’s site reads. “For the Tretorn collaboration, André has once again created original sketches that are being integrated into the capsule’s branding – from his ant logo on the box, to sketches on the tissue paper inside.”
