Converse was among the first major brands to adopt the duckboot motif when in late 2010 they applied the weather-resistant look to a pair of Chuck Taylor lowtops.  High-cut All Stars followed this past October, but for a brand whose classics translate so well to these new hybridized designs, we might have expected more from the One Star.  The Masafumi Watanabe x Converse Jack Purcell Johnny further fleshes out the duckboot theme with the most faithful rendition yet covering the JP Johnny hightop entirely in rubber, save the brown leather ankle collars.  Only 450 pairs of this collaboration with Bedwin & the Heartbreakers‘ founder will be available at First String retailers starting February 4th, and you can see more images when you click on the jump below.

Converse Jack Purcell Johnny High ‘Tweed’

The Converse Jack Purcell already had a signature design element with its instantly recognizeable toe ‘smile’, but a new variation released just over a year ago has become quite popular with its own obvious ‘extra’.  The Jack Purcell Johnny is at the peak of its powers in this superb new tweed edition that proves a purple and yellow weave can echo a sophisticated traditional style just as easily as the LA Lakers’ uniforms.  These go a step deeper into the dressy realm thanks to the Johnny’s ‘seatbelts’ being cast in a rich mahogany leather, and it’s hard to imagine a shoe better fitting a white sole than this dark yet warm upper.  Click through and you’ll be able to see these from a variety of angles, then grab a pair from select Converse retailers like Size?.

Converse First String Jack Purcell Johnny

It’s definitely one of those chicken-and-egg situations when it comes to determining who might be ‘copying’ whom, but there’s little debating that what’s worked so well for Converse in recent years, has also worked for Vans, and vice-versa.  Here’s a very direct proof in the Converse First String Jack Purcell Johnny, a variation on the classic smiley sole that utilizes an extra ‘seatbelt’ of material along the midfoot a la Off the Wall’s Standard Issue Sk8-Hi.  Really, this element is just externalizing the support found in a variety of vulc-soled basketball hightops including the Nike Blazer, but it does indeed set these off and along with the luxe materials gives these two new pairs a nice premium feel.  Pick between black chambray and suede or parchment canvas with a suede strip or just get them both, since both pairs are available now at First String retailers like Up There.

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.
