bargain buy from fleaBay that some of you may like - was on the look out for some black soops with white shells and saw these and thought id have a punt.

the shells and mids have yellowed with age and the date on the label says 94/09 made in Korea

Gonna clean them up and stick some new laces in them and get them looking a little neater
