Oldest Basketball Sneakers Discovered

6/14/2011 08:11:00 AM ·



Gary Pifer paid 50 cents for these brown high top canvas basketball sneakers made by the Colchester Rubber Company at an estate sale recently. Later that night, Mr. Pifer was shocked to discover, during an internet search, that the brand went out of business in 1893. I'm as bewildered as Gary, as these shoes look to be in tip top shape. The owner was either a lousy player or they're really not as old as we think. Hmmmm!
