Shoe Of The Week: Converse Leather Jack Purcell Sneakers

Tan leather low top Jack Purcell sneakers from Converse with the signature black ‘smile’ in the rubber toe cap, contrasting white laces, metal eyelets, suede lining and rubber sole.

Jack Purcell was a Canadian badminton player and later stockbroker. He was badminton world champion for over 15 years before he retired in 1945. Jack Purcell designed the shoes that bear his name and the signature toe cap ‘smile’ in 1935 to help badminton players, though the style is more popular now for its look than function on the court.

The light brown leather is an unusual spin on a classic shoe: wear with shorts or light jeans for an off-beat take on casual style.
