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 Purcell's are Jack Purcell's...hard to ever say anything but positive things. So...the shoe are great. It's the customer service from Zappos that makes the difference, 1st Class, top notch...best ever!

These are awesome shoes. My friend has worn them since high school. We couldn't find them in stores anymore, so we're really happy Zappos had them.

I just bought these and I love them! The only thing is I wish that Converse had a little more comfort and support. But overall these are great shoes!

Wore this shoe for years until they cut corners and product changed. Been wearing Chucks since; they always 1/2 size big (I wear 11 reg/10.5 Chucks). As these are also Cons, ordered these accordingly and found them too small. Zappos being the wonder they are shipped me my regular size and this fit better. It's now a well-enough-made shoe, more sturdy/supportive than Chuck offers-but nowhere near as comfortable. Narrow toe, and they take a damn long time to break in. Been romping around in them for a week and it's still painful. For comfort, stick to Chucks, or for a similarly classic look and great support check out some old Pumas. Cha dooky.

Runs somewhat narrow due to the rubber rand. Also, as I have noticed before, the converse foot beds are junk. They are lumpy in all the wrong places. They do not fit any contour of my foot at least. Same for the Chuck's I've tried on. Ordering up trying again.

These are great looking. But they fell apart pretty quickly after just a few months. The soles and the fronts were separating from the shoe.

These are super comfortable shoes and I'm so happy I got them. They keep my feet warm especially since the weather's getting cold. It took a few days to break them in, but overall they look awesome, especially with black laces. I wanted to avoid looking like a kid in high school, so having black laces really helped.

This shoe is not soft. It hurt my feet. The reinforced toe was uncomfortable and the shoe cut into my skin. It offers no support and is too wide for me. Great looking though.

Aw. I don't think a classic Jack Purcell really needs a review from me. If you're buying this shoe it's because you probably know it and love it already. It's a flat basic great looking fresh and preppy canvas shoe, and/or can be worn in hipster vernacular as well. If you require arch support add an insert as they do not provide support. They are awesome if you prefer to go without socks as they breathe and don't become stinky. I stuff mine with brown paper bags though after wearing so maybe that's why mine stay nice. I have had probably 25 pairs over the course of my lifetime. Total standby. Cute with short dresses, jeans, outfits. The whole enchilada. But a half-size smaller than you wear for snug/good fit.

Already had a pair of these low tops in whit but just had to have the blacks too after seeing someone wearing them the other day. Has anyone ever come up to you and said, "I really like your Jack Purcell's." If someone recognizes your JP's, you know you have met a pretty cool & perceptive individual.

These shoes are very well made, sturdy, and they have good support. They are very comfortable, and they do not need breaking in. They also look nice on your feet.

Very cute shoe. Fits true to size. I ordered my normal size 8 1/2 and it fit perfectly. (FYI...the Chuck Taylor converse runs a little big so I normally have to get an 8 but this Jack Purcell shoe runs true).

I have been wearing all stars and shorelines the last two years. I had other pairs in high school but that was a long time ago. I'm a women's size 9. So in the all stars I wear an 8. In the shorelines a 9 and in these a 8.5. These are longer in the toe box. A bit wider. I love them.

Pretty disappointed with Converse for these. I've had a pair of Jack Purcells on rotation in my closet since I was 15 (~4 pairs in total) and they've always been my go-to. But like many have said in reviews, their quality has really gone down. These do not fit the same as past pairs I've had; the footbed is not as comfy nor does it have as good of arch support, the laces don't have the silver tips anymore, the tongue is no longer printed with their logo, they run smaller than they used to, and they just don't feel as substantial anymore. Decided to return this pair. After 10 years, it be time to find a new pair of white sneakers. :(

I got these because the "Signature" model was unavailable in my size. While these are okay, they are not the ones I wanted, and Zappos still doesn't have the Signatures in size 11 white. Over a month! Is that a Zappos problem, or a Converse company problem? I don't know, but I'm still disappointed.
