It’s known around the world for the ‘smiling’ toe and is most popular in the original lowtop silhouette, but this new Converse Jack Purcell hightop suggests a higher cut is more than welcome. The latest ‘Johnny’ Jack Purcell, this tonal brown leather getup features the same kind of side panel reinforcement found on the Vans Sk8-Hi Standard Issue variant; does that mean older buyers who tend to overlook skate brands will finally be able to adopt this style? You gotta love how Converse keeps things fresh with the Jack Purcell even after 75 years in the game, and you can grab the Jack Purcell Premium Johnny straight from their e-store.
this is nice! and yah, since converse was owned by Nike now, and they're throwing leather laces on chucks and JP's I think its dope if they bring back the leather laces on Janoski's :))
