's Friday Flashback: Converse Athletic Footwear

Welcome to the Converse Blog's Friday Flashback.  Today's post is a unique Canvas converse shoe from way back in the day.  It features a two stripe pattern on the upper with a extra layer of Rubber with the V logo.  It almost looks like an outrigger that you see on Converse shoes today.  It has a strong looking rubber toe cap like you would find on Chucks.  However, it features a sturdy extra ankle padding.  Aside from the arrangement of the upper there isn't really anything I haven't seen in some form on a Converse shoe before. 

However, the outsole is where this shoe's uniqueness really shines.  It features a honeycomb pattern, which is now mostly associated with Reebok.  I think it would be safe to say that these shoes predate the existence of Reebok as a company.  I don't know what any of that means, but I find it interesting.
That's for checking out the blog, look for some interesting stuff around the corner.
