Converse Revamps a Beloved Classic

by Kevin Breen

For a beloved brand like Converse, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" is probably a wise motto to live by. It's also kinda boring. There's wisdom in updating even the tried-and-true, and Converse is revamping their classic Jack Purcell sneaker with a whopping 18 new, but subtle, features. These updates include two-ply duck canvas, a herringbone outsole, aluminum eyelets, a winged tongue design, and a footbed with Nike Zoom Air Technology to make things all the more comfy and luxe. The new Spring 2015 Converse Jack Purcell Signature sneaker will be available for purchase starting in February 2015 for $95.00, at Converse retail stores, Nordstrom and on in white, black and mason.
