Colchester's Gum Collection is inspired by authentic basketball sneakers of the early 20th century, where natural rubber was used untreated. Re-created as a replica of the iconic 1892 National Treasure Silhouette with the same 5" high-top design, turkey feather sole pattern, and Colchester Rubber Co. crest that are the hallmarks of the originals. Made from vulcanized rubber and canvas, the original sneakers were the first of their kind that protected feet while running, jumping, and pivoting on gymnasium floors. Updated for contemporary casual wear, the shoes have a built-in arch, cushioned insole, and metal eyelets.
