Vintage 1940's HOOD Black/White Canvas Basketball Sneakers Pre "P-F" Flyers, B. Goodrich Size 9 is in good condition. I t seems that the style I have is the Conference style which debuted around mid-1948. It appears they did an update to that style in 1949 by adding a black stripe to the outsole.
I could not find a stamp of size number. I tried to put both sneakers on. Both are too tight for me. I measured bottom of outside line are 11 3/4" x 4".
My best guess is size 9 to 9 1/2. Both rubber logo of HOOD on sides are melt and dried due to heat in previous location (see second and third pictures). I found it in estate sales.
