I'm aware there are several iterations of this shoe, the vintage USA-made ones, the early India-made ones, the later India-made ones, and the Ducky Browns. And maybe more I'm unaware of.
I recently picked up a pair of the India-made shoes, as evidenced by the printing in the interior pic. I've read that the early India-made versions were generally of higher quality than the later ones... Is it possible to tell from these pics which version I have?
The shoes are never-worn NOS, with what are described as a few marks from storage... The most egregious of which appears to be a circular mark on one of the soles. Nothing in the pics bugged me, but I'm also not looking with an expert eye. I'm pretty unfamiliar with these shoes beyond my Google research.
All I can tell you is that they looked nice to me. I paid $364 shipped. Did I do well? Just okay? Get taken?
