vintage van doren style #46 deck shoes
natural full grain suede/leather
made in usa circa 1978
US8?/UK7-7.5? (blue portion outsole measures 27.9cm)
these have seen significant life however are almost beyond wearing! whats left of the entire first foxing has cured/solidified & will continue to crack & chip away. even the top half of the friction is brittle & will endure cracks. the blue outsole by design is very rigid however even this may crack. the insole is super thin & essentially rock hard. these can be worn but will leave a trail of rubber & will not be forgiving in any way. mainly a collectors piece. the vinyl heel pads are missing. no original laces. despite all this the uppers remain super soft & would be cool slippers! size is no longer visible however measure up as US8 if not US7.5. please check measures.
