Listed is a Vintage Original release Adidas Billie Jean King US5.5 Tennis Court Shoes Mint in box, unworn and comes complete in its original Adidas box. Condition is as new, although due to age and storage, it is only suitable as a vintage collectible sneaker. Whilst photos suggests that the shoes appear wearable, I would not recommend this pair for wearing of any kind, if the original nature of the shoes is to be preserved for the foreseeable future.
Signs of age are evident in the light peeling of the BJK label on the tongue and on certain parts of the shoes, the after-glue is evidently darker in tone over the years of storage. The box, I would rate at a 9/10 condition - the lid is pristine, with no tears, and the external quality of the box has not seen fade or discolouring in any manner. A fantastic specimen for the avid vintage Adidas collector. Never re-released, and a true authentic collectible.Express post is available (additional charges apply).
