BALL BAND


Late 1940's deadstock Ball-Band (est 1898) canvas sport shoes, made in Mishawaka, Indiana. Look for the red ball trademark at the sole of every Ball-Band shoe...from Rose Bowl.

think of it as an item of clothing that like han solo has been carbonated-preserved in time, then discovered in a box decades later in new-unworn condition...hmm imagine if those 1950's ski helmets you found had never been used, dig pony boy?
