vintage van's style #36 ~ US9.5 ?
vintage van's style #36 old skool
black out(?) suede/canvas
made in usa circa 1991
US9.5?/UK8.5? (gum waffle outsole portion measures 28.3?cm)
good used condition. all rubber remains soft despite rubber (wet rot? shoo-goo?) softening. the suede(?) ollie pad has been grafted diy! at first it looked like the bounce stitch excess canvas internally had been poked through the rubber somehow to create the pacth. upon closer inspection its possible a donor outsole or foxing stripe was sole-swapped. if it was swapped it was an of usa made source. the internal heel counter shows significiant breakdown & was also repaired cosmetically. the insole shows some erosion to ball of left foot & some on the right. also note the external heel guard on the waffle. these should hold up to normal wear.... however because of these alterations i advise to wear at own risk! size not visible but bought as US9.5 & confirdent of this, if not bigger. laces not original
