1 could be mistaken to think cabs come without a padded tongue because over time the fiber-fill tongue of style #39 is prone to dry rot. the foam inside the tongue of all the above has succumbed to this in varying degrees. the foam is not sticky or crusted but does permeate through the tongue lining to leave a dusty coating on the footbed. as such the tongue is veritably empty & in some cases the lining was cut by the previous owner to release the black dust. this can be repaired. the foam of the inner collar, footbed nor any component of the shoe has NOT suffered. the (b) options above are early 90s productions which do feature tongues with better foam integrity & standard vans heel tabs. some boxes do show water damage. the US10.5 box incorrectly lists US11.5. otherwise mint!
