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?.
