vintage VANS style #44 authentic US9 mosaic print MADE IN USA 1980's








vintage vans style #44 authentic
P07 mosaic print canvas
made in usa circa 1989
new with defects (melt marks/sole lift)
US9/UK8-8.5

a pure product of vulcanised heat, coming complete with melt marks, this model edged too close to the burning oven it was manufactured in. 2 blemishes to the foxing, & minimal lifting to the original innersole are only superficial & will not effect wearability, & in fact may even add to the deadstock appeal? i have been known to purchase shoes having sat on mannequins for 20+ years, & stock exposed to the light of a window display purely for that faded look of deteriorated originals. nos nostalgia!
