100.00 + 4.00 s + h

Do any of you out there remember wearing these? They were very popular when I was in school. We had ones called 'Spaldings', and mine were brown and white... They were also a bit of a challenge to paint... especially the laces... serves me right, I used to make my students draw shoes with laces as a sketchbook assignment !


  1. Love those little baby shoes. Awesome.

  2. perfect! my mom had black and white shoes from the 40's they call spectators. i just love this. those shoes are so precious.
