There's some minor signs of this wear, but most of the cosmetic imperfections are a result of age. All of the original stitching is in-tact and in good shape. There are some minor snags on the canvas of the inner-right shoe near the stitching - however, the stitching is undamaged. Bottom of the midsoles (where they meet the ground) have some rough edges.
Converse tabs on the heels have some wear, hard to tell - some of the rubber is worn and some of the text as well, though still mostly legible. Print on the insoles is legible. There's wear on the insides and some discoloration from the dye, though minimal.
Ends of the laces have been cut at one point, edges are fraying but they're still in good shape. Soles appear as though they were never worn.Glue marks around much of the rubber portions, as they were a bit sloppy when they made these originally. There is'vintage standard' amount of discoloration, marks, scuffs, etc. They're around 60 years old; that'll happen to anything.
All of the packaging is in excellent condition, as is the box. Since there's only 12 slots for photos, I'm limited on sharing physical details.
These are in collectors condition, and it's clear that they've been in storage for 95% of their lifetime. There are no issues beyond what you'd expect - for vintage Converse of this age, these are nearly pristine. 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 refrain from sending me messages that don't pertain to your interest in purchasing these.
