Who is Jack?

Jack Purcell contrary to some confusion was not a tennis player but indeed a bandminton world champion from the the 1930’s all the way until the 1940’s.  Before the days of Jordan and Lebron, Jack designed his own sport specific sneaker for the BF Goodrich Rubber Company who later sold the rights to Converse.  Often seen on styles icons from back in the day such as James Dean, Purcell’s the sneaker became instant culture classics that have continued to remain timeless throughout the decades. One thing I know is like the unmistakable toe of the Jack Purcell, they make me smile too!

Oh, by the way we just recieved a new shipment of Purcells to make you smile too!!!
