The Jack Purcell is not a shoe that needs a redesign so when we heard of Converse retooling the iconic sneaker, we were a bit skeptical as to what the end result would be. Thankfully the famous silhouette is fully intact, but this time they've given it some modern tweaks to improve the shoe's overall comfort and durability.
The upper of the shoe is updated with a two-ply duck canvas inspired by Army specifications for a stronger upper. The shoe also features polished aluminum eyelets, streamlined toecap, an Ortholite footbed with Nike Zoom Air cushioning, and the signature two-piece Purcell smile constructed detailed in Converse blue.
The new Jack Purcell Signature is available this month for $95 at converse.com, Nordstrom, and Converse retail stores.
