This is how they were found ,buried deep down in a store's basement since 1979

another model but couldn't salvage this one 

original 1963 ad 

A little chlorox spray and a tad of kiwi shoe polish .....voila !!

The shoes featured today are real survivors .i've found them this week in a store's basement,where they've been sitting since 1979.After an hour digging in the dark ,a flash light literally stuck in my mouth and going through piles of canvas shoes,i was able to rescue these babies :1960's dead stock "deck star" converse canvas deck shoes.Took just a little TLC and now,they are back and ready for at least the next 3 summers
