Heck these measurements with your own shoes. Very rare military sneakers, they even. Still have their original metal tip laces! It doesn't state who made these, however, Converse and Keds were the biggest American manufacturers at the time and they both made shoes for the American armed forces so these are pretty likely to have been made by one of them. Great looking regardless and well made, really hard to find a nice example like this so do not miss out on the opportunity to own some sneakers with real history!
