Size: 8.5 US Mens / Bottom sole measures 12.5" heel to toe exterior bottom sole / 3.75" at ball of feet, widest point of mid section bottom sole (may be slightly wider due to thick molding). / Approximately 11.5 inside insole from heel to toe...Perhaps prototypes from 1976 era when Vans and legendary skaters Stacey Peralta and Tony Alva developed the new "95" model- later known as the "Era"- that featured a cushioned ankle collar and different color combinations! Please read DETAILS section below for much more information on this amazing, museum-worthy package that's a must for any Vans / OG skate or surf collector.
Size: 8.5 US Mens (likely 7.5 UK ; 41 EU). Bottom sole measures 11.5 heel to toe exterior bottom sole.
Approximately 10.5 inside insole from heel to toe. If your favorite shoe's length is within a half inch.
5 threshold of our length measurements, these should fit! But these are likely better suited for display factoring the rarity. Pre-owned, unworn NEW condition without tags or box, likely 40+ years old! A few faint spots/ stains are barely evident on upper canvas.. Tiny water spot on toe of left shoe, tiny dirt speck in front of Vans hangtag on side of right shoe, another faint dirt scuff just above midsole of right show.
Likely from being moved around all these years without a box, but these few minor flaws are almost impossible to spot factoring original off-white color. Original laces may have been replaced, but we're not sure. Inside sole heel on right is curling up slightly from age. Sticky sole bottom that we have never seen vs. And odd soles suggest these are perhaps prototypes of.
Transition to 1976 Era 95 model? Some faint dirt on soles from storage, but zero wear evident on the rubber.
99.9% positive these are deadstock new old stock NOS. Overall, absolutely nothing major to detract from craftsmanship, design quality and immense value factoring the absurd rarity of these shoes! Measures about 11.5" underside sole, 3.75" width.
And about 10.5 insole. Glasses and Box are still brand-new, never used and in original packaging. The white checkered glass has a minuscule glass flaw /scuff on upper edge. Possibly a fleabite ding from someone admiring that glass outside the box and nicking something in the process- but it is near impossible to spot and, overall, this entire set is new and still essentially in perfect condition.Please see photos, just amazing! Okay folks, this is Holy Grail territory right here.. Authentic, 1970s Vans Red / Off-White Canvas skateboard shoes, likely 1976 era. This treasure was unearthed at an estate sale in Anaheim, California and the sellers indicated the original owner once worked at the original Vans retail store in Anaheim in the early 70s. + XTRA BONUS: New in Box (NIB) Set of Four (4) 50th Anniversary Commemorative Glasses are also included as a bonus alongside this super rare pair of shoes This entire set new is also super rare! We have never seen the unique white bottom rubberized soles, but our research seems to indicate this was the original white "Sticky" sole that made Vans so famous with pioneering skateboarders in the late 1960 through early 70s. Factor those details with the fact that these shoes exhibit a cushioned collar and multi-color pattern and we have evidence that suggests these were perhaps one of the first iterations of the now ubiquitous "Era" model that legendary skaters Tony Alva and Stacey Peralta designed for Vans in 1976. We are not Vans historians, but our best guess is that the old school soles and the handwritten size markings on the inside tongue and model pencil scratch on one interior sole may suggest these were actually prototypes of the transition to the Model "95" that just preceded the introduction of the famous waffle soles.
But please reference all pictures for additional verification of era authenticity.
