A pair of original 1970's Converse Jack Purcell Shoes in White Ox, Size 8. Eltra only owned Converse in the 70's. These shoes seem to be New Old Stock and one has never even been laced. I believe these were a display model.
The right shoe has a 19.99 Price sticker on the outer rubber. The rubber on the right shoe has yellowed from exposure. This shoe was clearly the one that got sunlight while the other one stayed in the box. The right shoe is laced with clean white laces. There is some slight staining on portions of the canvas of the right shoe.
The yellowing has continued under the right shoe onto a good portion of the sole. The left shoe is in near perfect condition. It is not laced and still has the stuffing paper in the shoe. A few marks on the rubber and some slight tufting on canvas. Also some staining on the inside of the fabric.
The box has creasing and some tearing on the lid as well as one end needing to be re-glued, but still presents well for its age.
