These shoes are faithful replicas of the first basketball sneakers invented in 1892 that were rediscovered in 2004 at an estate sale in Vista, California.
Recreated with the same 5" high-top design, canvas uppers, turkey feather sole pattern, and Colchester Rubber Co. crest that are the hallmarks of the originals.

Updated for contemporary casual wear, the shoes have a built-in arch, cushioned insole, and metal eyelets.
