Converse Jack Purcells are some of the most iconic sneakers available today. We know them. We love them. We probably wouldn’t change anything about them. Converse just got done giving the shoes significant upgrades–without screwing up everything we’ve grown to love about the smiling sneakers. Added strength and durability from two ply duck canvas. Reinforced no-slip canvas heel counter. Molded foxing construction with streamlined toecap. Ortholite footbed with Nike Zoom Air technology built-in. In total, these Jack Purcells have 18 new features we’re pretty damn excited about and absolutely zero we’re disappointed in. They’re initially being released in black, white and mason colorways in the middle of February.
