As the story goes, the first basketball sneakers ever invented were the Colchester Basketball Shoes that came about in 1892, just one year after Dr. James Naismith invented the game and more than thirty years before the introduction of the Converse All-Star. Those particular 1892 Colchester kicks were long but forgotten before they were rediscovered in 2004 at an estate sale in Vista, California. Since that discovery the entire brand has undergone a complete overhaul, and they’re now producing kicks like the Colchester Rubber Co. 1892 National Treasure High Top Sneakers you see here as faithful replicas to the originals that made the brand a household name in the first place. Each pair of these classic and iconic sneakers is made with vulcanized rubber and canvas, limited stock and features the original 1892 Turkey Feather Design Rubber Sole and Colchester Logo, so if you want to sport some history on your feet, this is the best way to do it.
