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.

I'm very pleased with these. My only complaint is that they get a little narrow in the toe. It's not a style issue, but makes them slightly less comfortable than they could be.

I love these shoes. Most converse don't fit my feet well but these are very comfortable. I would definitely recommend these based on the fit and style.

When will somebody out there in the corporate world get it through their heads that maybe the reason for brand loyalty is the product and not the brand itself and stop messing with a good thing in the interest of saving/making money? I am sure that everyone who bought pair after pair of the old Jack Purcells would have been more than happy to pay a few extra bucks to ensure that the quality of the shoes remain the same. Now I will have to make do with my remaining two pairs of the old style and wear them into the ground, because the new pair I bought this year are not even a pale imitation of the old version. Also, if you have been wearing the old version, you might want to go half a size up from what you think your size is because I found that their new insoles have a ridge at the heel that pushes your foot forward quite a bit.

I'd also recommend: Vans

The original! I love these Jack Purcells! Since the quality of tretorns has gone down since the 80's, I decided to resurrect another "tennie". These are substantial canvas shoe. Perhaps a big fashion don't, but I wear them with shorts, casual skirts and jeans (especially cute with boyfriend jeans) I would recommend ordering a half size smaller. I have a normal woman's foot and the Jacks are just a bit wide. I think that is due to men's sizing.
