This is a delightful little piece of vintage athletic footwear, albeit one that has been magically reduced in size & re-imagined in 10k gold. It just so happens that the magical shoemaker also saw fit to include a small metal hoop atop the laces, with which to attach the item to a bracelet or necklace, for example. On the side is an initial “P” along with ” ’26 ” – presumably 1926… likely celebrating a win for a college track star.
The item weighs 3.7 grams, measures exactly 1″ length and 5/16″ width at the widest part.
