Andre 3000’s sneaker collection includes redesigned vintage Tretorn Nylite shoes that Andre used to sketch in the classroom as a child.

With Andre’s reimagination of the original line-up of Treton shoes, his collection sports quilted uppers, rugby stripes, and high tops, among other new designs features.

In an interview with GQ Style, footwear designer and Tretorn consultant Jeff Staple said, “One of the things Andre really wanted to do was reconstruct it from the ground up. So a new outsole, new midsole, new last, new reinforcement points. That was all his call”.

On his inspiration for the collection, Andre told Billboard, “I have no idea where major thoughts come from. I kind of start from looking around, seeing what’s happening, and trying to find holes of things that are not happening.”
