European Branded Sneakers - Backyard - Retail $5,580

Backyard retro sneakers were developed in the early 1970s for court sports such as tennis, racquetball, badminton and squash.

They were made with a special reinforcing patch of suede on the inside
of each toe box. This reinforcement protected the sneaker from the wear
and tear of toe-drag while serving and lunging. It also provided
stability for fast starts and stops as well as quick lateral movements.

In the 1980s and 1990s Backyard sneakers were worn as a fashion sneaker
throughout Europe and achieved a cult following. Today they are finally
available in the United States as unique 1970s canvas retro sneakers.

Made by hand in the same European factory since 1972 with 100% natural
and European sourced materials. All leather is from Italy. We are proud
of our EU certified factory, so you can be proud too! Your Backyard
sneakers were made with an ecofriendly process and without chemicals.

The payment for the auction consists of the final winning bid, the Buyer's Premium, all shipping charges (if applicable), and all applicable taxes. Unless otherwise stated in the auction, our standard Buyer's Premium is 11% of the final bid price. Shipping charges (if applicable) do not have any direct correlation with the purchase price. If you are unaware of these costs, please request a shipping quote.

Sales tax will be charged on all transactions where either the goods are shipped or if the buyer chooses to arrange their own shipping. If you or your organization are tax exempt, we must obtain the appropriate documentation in order to waive sales tax on your transactions. Please view our FAQs for more information.
