I believe that the'Black-Tab' actually preceded the'Blue-Tab' model, as there's a different insole and these are significantly rarer than the'Blue-Tabs. This is probably the best condition I've seen a pair of these in. Practically new, aside from a couple scuffs on the inner-midsole (near the toecaps). Potentially the nicest pair of vintage converse in my inventory currently. I truly cannot find any issues with these worth noting, they are immaculate.
Incredibly rare to find a pair of these with all of the original packaging in-tact, especially in such clean condition. Obviously, they were worn briefly at one point in time. This pair appears to have been worn once or twice at the most.
All of the original stitching is in-tact and in good shape. Some discoloration on the inside, where dye from the canvas rubbed off.
Laces have some slight discoloration. Soles appear as though they were never worn. Glue marks around much of the rubber portions, as they were a bit sloppy when they made these originally. All of the packaging is in excellent condition, as is the box. These are in collectors condition, and it's clear that they've been in storage for 99% of their lifetime.
There are no issues beyond what you'd expect - even for vintage Converse, they look and feel like they just left the factory. Since they're vintage, I can make no guarantees about the structural integrity of the rubber on these -- I assume no liability after they've been worn. More photos are available for serious buyers.
Please refrain from sending me messages that don't pertain to your interest in purchasing these. I don't have the time or care to stroll down memory lane. This is one pair of a couple dozen vintage Converse that I'll be listing. I would be open to considering a bulk-lot sale for businesses or collectors once I get them all listed.
