The Jack Purcell, already a beacon of sport-inspired fashion footwear, goes through yet another transformation this summer. Does any shoe undergo sartorial rebirths better than this one? Behold, the Converse Jack Purcell Crepe Collection, which, thankfully, is exactly what it sounds like.
Three colorways of the classic tennis shoe — black, navy and off-white — sport solid textile uppers layered atop soft rubber crepe soles in the traditional gum brown. And we don’t just mean outsole: midsole; toecap; everything.
Expect to see all three hit select retailers this month, raising the only logical questions: Why did this take so long and when can we have more?
