These are a super rare pair of early basketball shoes. I believe they are from the 1930s or 40s.
They were manufactured by the Servus Rubber Co. Which you may recognize as a maker of rubber boots. The model, which is embossed on the round rubber label on ankle of shoe says Inter Collegiate. These are in surprisingly good condition given their age and that they were obviously used for their intended purpose. The rubber is still nice on the toe and the canvas uppers look undamaged.
The soles feel thin but there are no holes. VTG Mens Athletic Basketball Shoes 1930s?
