I’ll refrain from giving you the tiresome ‘History of Converse’ synopsis you tend to regularly find in menswear web copy. I can assure you, there’ll be no attempts to bolster our word count by detailing Chuck Taylors rise to the top of the Basketball hierarchy, or Jack Purcell’s first badminton sneaker of 1935. If you’re into your Converse, you’ll know all there is to know anyway. And if you don’t, stop being lazy and google it.
Instead, I thought I’d keep the blurb to a minimum and share some press shots of their limited edition Purcell ‘First String’ release (I think there might be a badminton racket related pun in there somewhere). Expect the usual Converse fit, along with a peached textile cotton upper, vulcanized rubber sole, branded heel tab, cork foot-bed (nice), and the iconic Jack Purcell ‘smile’ toecap detail.
If that weren’t enough, Converse have issued a range of colour-ways that”ll have you grinning from heel to toe … I mean ear to ear!
