Vintage Keds "pistol Pete" Maravich Sneakers, White/black, 1970's, Size 8 For Sale
I'm selling a few select pairs from my
collection of vintage and worn sneakers. Many of these styles were
discontinued years ago. Most were purchased on over the past 14
years or so, but some I bought in other places.
I've done my best to provide accurate
descriptions. Please study the photographs carefully and let me know
if you have any questions. As collectors know, it's impossible to
predict the long-term wearability of a vintage pair of sneakers. Some
will hold up fine to regular wear, while others are more fragile. You
should not, of course, expect the same level of wearability as you
would get from a brand new pair of sneakers. I'm sorry, but returns
will not be accepted. If you have questions, ask!
All items are -- or will be -- cleaned
as per standards. Ours is a non-smoking house, but I can't vouch
for the original owner (unless it was me).
Here is a great vintage pair of Keds "Pistol Pete" Maravich sneakers in white with black stripes.
These are a men's size 8. This classic pair was made in the 1970's. I
bought them in their current condition about 20 years ago and never
wore them. They are not marked as to where they were made, but I
believe that Keds from this era were only made in the USA. Measured
on the bottom of the sole, the length is 27.6 cm (10.9 inches), and
the width at the ball of the foot is 9.4 cm (3.7 inches).
As you can see from the photographs,
these sneakers have light wear. The rubber shows slight yellowing in
comparison to the canvas which is still bright white, but the rubber
is in good condition. The soles are a little dirty, but that should
be easy to clean. These sneakers are 40 years old and in excellent
shape considering their age. These sneakers are classics -- they
don't make them like this anymore!
