You probably already know we enjoy updated looks on classic pieces, so it's no surprise that we're pretty pumped to hear that old-school tennis shoe brand Tretorn is upping their cool quotient with some new collaborations. The brand's classic T-56 Canvas sneakers are getting stylish makeovers this spring from brands like Comme des Garçons, J. Crew, and, this fall, the uber-hip Ace Hotel in New York. Comme des Garçons designed four new styles for the brand, available now for guys and gals, that are the perfect mix of stylish and sporty. J.Crew added a sophisticated twist to the sport shoes by adding exclusive colors to the Tretorn line in shades like antique stone, fawn, and warm wisteria. How preppy sounding is that? No images are available yet for the Ace Hotel collaboration that will be available in October, but if it turns out to be anywhere as cool as other lines they've produced, they're sure to be some pretty sweet kicks.
