Old Sneakers - 1922 Keds "Comet" Basketball Shoe

1922 Keds "Comet" high-top basketball shoeAs advertised in the September 23, 1922 issue of Boot and Shoe Recorder Magazine:

Here are three tributes to the "Comet"–the famous Keds basketball shoe. These testimonials are only a few of the large number that have come from the leading university coaches in all parts of the country. In fact wherever this shoe has been worn it has won unprecedented praise.

The Comet is only one of many Keds which are popular for gymnasium wear. You are missing great profits if you fail to feature Keds for indoor sports.
