Vintage Converse 40s 50s Hi Tops Chuck Taylor 7.5 9.5 Athletic Tennis Shoes Usa:
A truly amazing pair of vintage Converse Athletic Shoes. I think they are from the 1950s. If you are a collector and you know otherwise, please email me and I will correct this listing! As you can see in the pictures they have a smaller rubber toe cap that has a slight texture to it. The round logo on the shoes is all white and says CONVERSE MADE IN U.S.A. ATHLETIC SHOES.The bottom of the sole is marked 7 1/2. They fit me when I was a 9.5 in ladies shoes.The inside of the shoe has a footbed that states: Converse Comfort Cushion Arch. Also by the heel inside I think it says: Converse Full Sponge Insole.These have been worn but they are still in very good condition. The rubber on the soles and heels are worn as you can see in the pictures, but the black canvas and white top stitching are still in great shape. The right shoe's inside heel lining area canvas is worn through - please see the photo. The rubber shows age with some yellowing and they could use a cleaning as there is some light dirt on the rubber and soles and some faint evidence of some writing (a price?) that I tired to clean off. Just want to be super honest about all matters regarding the condition, especially for collectors!! I am making them out to be a mess, but they are really in very good, vintage condition.Great grippers type front toe area. Labels on back of shoes still adhered. They are navy blue with a large white star and two smaller stars with words: Converse, Made in U.S.A., Athletic Footwear.A very wonderful and rare pair of Converse sneakers, before the Chuck Taylor name!Please email me any questions. I might consider international shipping but please email me before you offer to discuss. Cost of shipping stated is for U.S. only and includes insurance and tracking.Thank you!
