If you like the regular Converse All-Stars then you will most likely love the Converse Jack Purcell. The Purcell is both lighter and all around more comfortable than the All-Stars. I have several pairs of Jack Purcells and they are all very comfortable and the fit and finish is consistent. The Purcell runs true to size, unlike the All-Stars. The only downside is that the Purcell is not available in as many colors and styles like the All-Star but hopefully that will change soon. Like I mentioned at the start, if you ever tried a pair of All-Stars, which most people I know have, and liked them then definitely get a pair of Purcells and you will like them just the same, if not more.

These were my go-to shoe for almost any outfit, but the white ones that Zappos sent me were not the ones pictured. They were Purcells, but as one other reviewer stated, these aren't the same shoes. The insole is now a tan color, and is not the blue 'suede-feeling' sole that you could so easily go barefoot in...the Jack Purcell logo is no longer present on the tongue. The two eyelets on the inside arch are now put through the rubber. The toe box is longer. The upper is now only one cheap-feeling canvas layer, as is the tongue. The laces are thin and have no metal tips. The Jack Purcell 'smile' is now level with the rubber on the toe, not recessed as before. Not sure if the company was trying to cut costs, but this shoe now feels cheap. I have since returned them and hope I can find a white pair from the better days. I'm disappointed with the changes to this shoe.

Jack Purcells have a great classic look to them that go with everything, and this is my fifth pair. Unfortunately, Converse recently decreased the quality of the shoes by skimping on some of the subtle characteristics that made JPs so nice. The tongue no longer has the logo, the suede that was featured on the inside of the shoe (both heelback and sole) has been removed, the laces don't have the metal tips on the ends, and the glue holding the rubber to the sides seems to give a lot sooner than previous versions. To the casual observer, the changes aren't drastic - but I am sorely disappointed the Converse took the cheaper route on such a classic.

I just have to echo the other reviews that have mentioned the unfortunate changes. These used to be the most comfortable shoes, but no longer. As others have said, they feel cheaper and considerably less comfortable. I have been so disappointed in the new ones that I gave up on them (after almost a decade of consecutive purchases) until I found a five-year old pair in my closet. I put those on and was amazed at how much more comfortable than the new version. This isn't just a fear a of change, it is a totally inferior product. What a bummer, converse really ruined my favorite shoes.

I ordered these to replace an old pair of black Jack Purcells that I loved. There are a few small details in this new pair that was missing from my old pair that I found disappointing. These shoes do not have the metal tipped shoe laces and the tongue does not have the Jack Purcell stitching at the top. Again, small details but ones that I miss.
