And yes, I understand the irony of posting that on a men's clothing message board of which I have been a member for nearly 10 years.

Sorry to bring back this thread from the dead, but I am very interested in knowing what shoes he is wearing. As to the comment about him just throwing on any old pair of tennis shoes, that wasn't really his style. He was pretty brand loyal and particular about what he wore. Persol 714's were his favorite sunglasses (he had 3 or 4 pairs throughout the 60s with different color frames and lenses), he also liked Lee Prest cords and Lee pants/jeans in general, and his favorite shoes were playboy chukkas by Hutton, which he also wore throughout the 60s. Here are a few more pics of him with the white shoes. One is in color and shows the tread on the bottom. If anyone can help, please do.

 

Thanks,

C

Sorry to bring back this thread from the dead, but I am also very interested in what exactly he has on. As to the comment about most likely just throwing on any old pair of sneakers, that wasn't his style. He was very brand loyal and particular about what he wore, especially in the 60s. His favorite sunglasses were Persol 714s (he had 3-4 pairs with different frame colors and lens colors throughout the 60s), he liked Lee Prest pants and Jeans, and he also had preferred to wear Playboy Chukkas by Hutton and wore them in both the 50s and 60s. I would like to know if anyone knows more and I have a few more pictures that may help.

 

Regards,

Honestly, they might be Chuck Taylors, maybe an older model of the All Star Leather Ox.  But that seems like too obvious an answer, so I'm guessing they're actually something more obscure.
