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.

These are adorable; wore with white Capri pants, and navy top and received two compliments the first day. Felt true to size and width and I wear with my own arch support.

Great summer classics that go with anything from jeans to khakis. The soft lining allows you to wear them with or without socks.

Love these! Normally a 7.5 in regular shoes & an 8.5 in tennis shoes. Ordered a women's 7. I Like these more than the regular converses because they don't have the double stripes and the tongue brand name - I feel like these are a little more dressier. I have a pair of Supergas that are similar and these fit a lot narrower, which works great for my feet.

These are great for that funny old gym teacher look I was going for at the time. The toe section is a little tight and never going to stretch so if you have narrow feet be aware of that before purchasing.

i had a pair of jack purcell's in high school, so these were a bit of a nostalgia purchase. but i had been looking for a cute pair of blue shoes, and i thought these fit the bill. i have some keen sneakers that i think are more comfortable. but i think these would be fine if you don't plan on walking or standing all day in them, as i don't think that they have much arch support. but, i usually wear hiking shoes, with good arch support – so if you're used to wearing little flats, or flip-flops, these may feel like they have a lot of arch support. i really like the dark blue color, and it's almost like they're denim, so i love them with khaki pants, and a denim shirt. and overall, i just really like the look.

I was scared to order these because of unfavorable reviews but I needed comfy sneakers for my vacation. I love these! True to size, I ordered my usual 7 and they were just right. My only modification is that I took out the insoles and replaced them with superfeet insoles for better arch support.

I would order 1/2 size down on these. I ended up selling them to a friend and ordering another pair in a different size. I'm still rating 5 stars because they're beautiful and my friend really liked them!

I love this shoe and I've been wearing this style for over 20 years. The navy is the perfect color for all seasons and goes well with just about any outfit, they look super cuter with a nice sun dress too. ' I have wide flat feel and ware a size 10. Normally having feet like mine makes shoes look big and clown like on my feet, but not these shoes! They make my feel look smaller due to the cap toe and the toe box is wide enough for my feet, a huge plus! My only disappointment was I paid for 2 day shipping and it took 3 days. Even after I had called and the nice lady assured me I would have them in 2 days because I placed my order before 1 pm. That was the 1st time I have ever been let down by Zappos.

I have been wearing Jack Purcell's for years and this is the first time I was disappointed in the product. The tongue, in both shoes, slides down into the shoe. Not only is it annoying, forcing me to constantly pull them back up, but it actually causes pain to my feet where the material bunches up. Not sure if this is a new design flaw from Nike taking over production of this shoe, but I can't wear these. Bummer!

Having never worn a pair of Cnverse, I was going to purchase the all white 'Chuck II' style, but saw the white Jack Purcells, and loved the slightly chunkier style! Pair them with cuffed jeans or a t-shirt dress for a clean, cute look. They are moderately comfortable to walk around in, and do not chafe like some other canvas shoes. I know these will be my go-to shoes year round!

bought these because they have a removable insole and i need to use orthotics. I wear a 6.5 to 7 D (women's). I purchased the size listed as size 7 women's and it is at least a half, if not whole, size too long. Sadly, the width is too narrow for D width so no point in trying smaller size

These bear little resemblance to my old, favorite Jack Purcells. They have a lot more rubber on the toe and a lot more, perhaps unnecessary, innersole. From the outside they now just look like All-Stars, are a bit overstated. True, original Jack Purcells were more elegant, even for sneakers. All that said they're perfectly comfortable. I'm just not sure why they're called Jack Purcells.

The design and quality of this show has changed. Over the course of 10 years this is the third pair of Jack Purcell's I have owned. The pair I just received has a poorer design with a weaker footbed. I am keeping them but it is likely the last pair I'll own.

The one I received, the sole appeared off-white compared to the rest of the shoe. I do not see this yellowish tinge from the ones at the shop.
