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 have been buying Converse Jack Purcell sneakers for 20 years and love the fit and style! I have never liked the traditional Converse sneakers, as they squeaked when I walked. The Jack Purcell has more padding inside and fits the foot a lot better, hence the difference in price.....well worth it!??

boo. In the past, I bought the Jack Purcell's because of the increased padding and arch support. Now the insoles are as crappy as the chucks. Meh. Looking for a different brand of shoe now.

I love the look of these shoes, I've worn this style for a long time BUT this last pair literally fell apart after 7 months of wearing them about 1x a week. It seems the quality of Converse shoes has tanked (the last two pairs have fallen apart in record time) and I'm super disappointed. I will not be buying another pair of these again which is a bummer because I love them.

Have admired these sneakers from afar for a long time. Being a loyal Pro-Keds fan I've never taken the plunge. Well, life is short and new sneakers brighten my day and many of my outfits. I am glad I bought them. I chose the navy blue and am happy with the style, fit and comfort. Many reviewers bemoan the changes in the sneaker but as a first timer I am a fan.

Cute and comfy--I would not walk for miles in them, but for typical daily use--running errands, etc., I really like these! They have more arch support than the regular chuck taylors.

The material quality is lacking compared to my pervious pair. After wearing for only a few months the rubber is separating on the sides. Very disappointing since these cost a bit more. should have just gotten the cheaper Cons.

This is the basic canvas Jack Purcell shoe, which is the slightly upscale sibling of the Converse Chuck Taylors.There are also leather Jack Purcells for rain resistance and a dressier style and the Jack Purcell Signature shoes with a thicker insole and various added styling details.The basic Jack Purcell uses higher quality canvas and a better insole than the basic Jack Taylor shoes, making it more comfortable and more durable.The Jack Purcell is true to size so if you wear a 10 with New Balance or Nike you can wear a 10 in Jack Purcell.The JP is tight across the toe box and can rub on your small toe. My solution is to wear them with thick socks for two hours a day in the house for a week. They loosen up enough to wear all day and after a few weeks of frequent wear they conform to your foot for a snug and comfortable fit.If you like the canvas version, you will love the leather version which is rain resistant, dressy looking, and easy to keep clean.

Brands I'd also recommend: Chuck Taylor, Clark's

I've always wanted a pair of Jack Purcell's and think they are so classic looking. I think they run a little too large, but with thicker socks, they are very comfortable. I don't wear these as walking shoes, more for style; I don't think I could wear them for a long time.

I ordered these for my boyfriend for his birthday. I was a bit concerned because he has wide feet and I've owned Converse before and found them to be narrow for my feet. He really liked them and said they were very comfortable. This is the first pair of shoes he did not have to return because of this wide feet. I think the canvas helps with that. They also look so good! classic!

Converse has changed the shape of the toe of the classic Jack Purcell low top! The toe is narrower and the vamp shorter than on past Purcells. Shame on Converse for tampering with perfection! As a result, I have to return the new pair I ordered.

Like the other reviewers who are long-time Jack Purcell wearers, I'm disappointed Converse/Nike cut corners on the quality and style of the current version of my favorite white go-with-anything shoe. For reference, I started wearing Purcells in 1994. I'm on my sixth pair. The eyelets are in the wrong place; the smile is wrong; the tongue is longer; the toe box is bigger; the sole less stiff. Still, I can't quit these shoes and still haven't found another white shoe that I love as much as the old version of the Jack Purcell, therefore I will continue to wear them. Nike, here's a hint - throwback. Please.
