Here are some Vans all black, bit more expensive though. (y) https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/vans-era-trainers-in-black-mono-for-ps35-click-collect-ps399-delivery-to-uk-mainland-at-office-3723649
Even from school days, I can remember plimsolls having black rubber soles? I'd like to see these J&J's with a dark coloured outsole. I'll get myself a pack of permanent marker-pens... ;) XD
That is the style, since the beginning of plimsolls or pumps, they have had that white wall of rubber. https://99percentinvisible.org/episode/episode-33-a-cheer-for-samuel-plimsoll/
These look really nice. Why oh why though, do they all seem to put a really thick "white" outsole - that just gets filthy every time you go out in them? (mad) It amazes me how the dirt and grime gets up the side of the shoe too? It's as if I'm dragging the side of my foot along the pavement! (embarrassed) I love these canvas-style shoes but they are a bu@@er to keep clean.
Mork calling Orson, come in Orson... Just me then. (skeptical)
