Converse was founded by Marquis Mills Converse in 1908 and made famous by basketball legend Chuck Taylor the namesake and inspiration of their iconic shoe. Converse has always maintained a strong association with sports which again served as the focal point of their offshoot Jack Purcell range launched by the Canadian badminton champ of the same name in 1935.
The iconic original silhouette comes in a variety of materials, patterns and colours making it the ideal wardrobe stable and solid base to any outfit. The Converse Jack Purcell retain a ubiquitous popularity thanks to timeless shape which are distinguished by the signature “smile” marking on the toe and vulcanised rubber midsole. We stock the classic shape in several subtle variations such as the Jack Ox, LTT Ox and Boat Mid so there is a different style for every need.
