'S Friday Flashback: North Carolina Startechs

As a die hard University of Kentucky fan, there are few things I dislike in the world more than the Duke Blue Devils and the North Carolina Tar Heels.  However, I do respect both programs and the success that they have had over the years.  HBO films just put out a documentary about their famous rivalry named "Battle for Tobacco Road."  I haven't gotten a chances to see it yet, but like most sports docs from HBO I am sure it will be great.  So to honor that and a time when Converse was worn by the elite of the elite in college basketball, I bring you today's Friday Flashback.

 
These Converse Startechs are in the simple yet classic white/Carolina blue colorway.  If you look carefully at the documentary you might even see these same shoes.  The Startech's have been re-issued in Japan for a number of years now, but have yet to see an American release. 

 
  
  
  
Thanks for checking out the blog, and have a great basketball filled weekend!
