Some residual dirt/discoloration from age/wear, see photos. Mostly untouched and left in vintage condition. The white canvas is slightly grey from age.
Very minimal wear and dirt on the soles. One appears to be taller than the other, which is simply a factory defect. All of the original stitching is in-tact and in good shape. There's a few spots of pilling and wear on the stitching, but no tears or cuts.Converse tabs on the heels have some wear on the lettering. It's still mostly legible, but there is wear. Both tabs are at a slight angle, but this is a just a small factory-defect. No odors or undisclosed stains.
Print on the insoles is legible. I believe this is a rarer variation of the insole logo. There's wear on the insides, though minimal. Wear/discoloration on the laces and around the eyelets.Glue marks around much of the rubber portions, as they were a bit sloppy when they made these originally. Labels on the inner-tongue are legible. They're in very good vintage condition. There is discoloration, marks, scuffs, etc. They're around 60 years old; that'll happen to anything.
The box is in good condition and the original packaging/inserts are included. I believe this insert is rarer than the ones that were packed into the standard low-top models.Since they're vintage, I can make no guarantees about the structural integrity of the rubber on these -- I assume no liability after they've been worn. More photos are available for serious buyers, please judge the included ones for a better sense of their condition. Please refrain from sending me messages that don't pertain to your interest in purchasing these. I don't have the time or care to stroll down memory lane. This is one pair of a couple dozen vintage Converse that I'll be listing. I would be open to considering a bulk-lot sale for businesses or collectors once I get them all listed.
