US NAVY CANVAS DECK SHOES...part2






Fresh from ww2 navy seabags and the infamous RIVETED grotto, 2 pairs of black and white deck shoes . canvas deck shoes were often worn and favored by PT boats and submarines crews in the Pacific.It might by explained by their light weight, ruggedness and fast drying capacity if soak with salt water.These 2 examples are brand less,but i do think the one without cap toe was manufactured by US RUBBER CO.
THE PAIR ON THE LEFT [cap toe] A 7M WILL BE 4 SALE ON EBAY THIS WEEK .....

  1. Shit, they're really nice! Never seen the captoes before.

    British/German deckshoes used to be all over the place when I was a young ignorant.

  3. Got a pair of the converse LL Bean canoe sneakers back in the late '80's in olive green and can't believe no one has reissued this stuff especially with all the collaborations, Japanese repro brands and hipster stores, has no one got the 'eye'?

  5. How does ACL do collaborations then? Seems like everyone is doing something. How about Segui x Mr Freedom x Papa Nui x Warpath, the ultimate it parallel branding!

  9. The shoe brand made by Anatomica and the compay named 35 summers is called Wakouwa.
    I saw your shoes in a free & easy titled Navyism and loved it.
    The wakouwa are inspired (more than that!) but the shape is supposed to be close to Alden shoes.
    I get 2 pairs ,white and brown,both with black sole.Really good shoes but so expensive.
    In this Free & Easy my friend St├ęphane Muller is wearing vintage deadstock US Navy officer shoes.
    I get a bunch of those deadstock if you want.
    On ne sait jamais!!
