Hot Vintage Tennis Collectibles – Converse High Top Canvas Tennis Shoes

How about a Hot new Vintage Tennis Collectible for your Tennis Den for men – Converse High Top Canvas Tennis Shoes

Converse in it’s heyday was producing 4,000 shoes daily, but it wasn’t until 1915 that the company began manufacturing athletic shoes for tennis. 2 years later in 1917 the first Converse Basketball shoes rolled off the assembly line and they both became wildly popular.

It’s very rare to come across original Converse High Top Tennis Shoes these days. Instead your more likely to find the converse Chuck Taylor All Star basketball shoes or the Converse Jack Purcell shoes from the 70’s instead. Both of which are very similar in materials and design and rank high up on the way cool scale.

About Jack Purcell, he was a world renowned Canadian badminton player who designed a canvas and rubber badminton sneaker for the B.F. Goodrich Company of Canada in 1935. His shoe design provided more protection and support for badminton players on the wooden courts.

In the 1970s, Converse now owned by Nike, purchased the trademark rights to Jack Purcell sneakers, which Nike still produces today. The shoes are similar in style to the Converse’s Chuck Taylor All-Stars, but can be distinguished by the signature “smile” across the toe. Converse “Jack Purcells” are highly sought after, but more so for their vintage fashion appeal than for real use on badminton or tennis courts.

If you find them in your travels buy them, you’ll be glad you did.
