    I’ve been consulting with and discussing some new styles with Colchester Rubber Co here’s me sporting their Dead Grass color-way. Odd thing is they are quite lively! I’ll have to take them on a long perambulation tonight. Before Converse and Nike and Adidas was versing Puma, there was a man named Colchester. I’m working on more info to explain their importance, so be aware... it’s an interesting story that twists and turns through US Rubber, basketball, and war. I’ll also reveal if they dance or not.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    thanks for this posting - I had no idea these sneakers existed - immediately purchased a pair from their website - pretty cool

    They have a good arch support and they are period correct. I love them. I’ll post more in a bit.

    Love my black high tops from Colchester, they are my go-to sneakers.

    I'm also awaiting impatiently for the release of the US Rubber Co. range!
