I like these shoes. What else is there? They fit and are comfortable. There you have it, oh yes, they look good!

Nice enough shoes, but the toe box for the Purcell is definitely tighter than for regular Converse. I had to go up nearly 3 sizes from what I normally wear in Converse for these to fit.

I was very disappointed with these shoes. I bought the same style a few years ago. (different color though) And they were the most comfortable shoes right out of the box. I wore them out and needed new ones. Bought these and they were very uncomfortable. It's been a few weeks now and they are just starting to get broken in. My feet are still hurting a bit. So I'm not happy with converse for changing what was a nice shoe to a not so nice shoe. Zappos however did a fine job on selling and shipping the shoes to me.

Not quite the same fit or insole as the slightly more expensive Jack Purcell CP's. This may not be a deal breaker for everyone, but was for me.

This is an extremely comfortable shoe, but the picture is misleading. The sole is a cream color that differs from the shoe lace. In addition there is an extra layer of shoe sole at the tip above where the toes are that make the shoe look bulky. Just wasn't what I was expecting so returning.

Different, but better! I read other reviews about the changes to these shoes, and hesitated to buy them again. I'm glad I went ahead and ordered a new pair. The differences seem minor - I wouldn't have noticed unless someone had pointed them out - and the comfort level is so much higher. This new pair feels like it has more support and cushion. I've worn them all day and my feet feel great. Change can be good!

At age 53 I still love the classic style of Jack Purcell's. I ware them with everything from boyfriend jeans to little summer dresses. that same classic styling has lasted decades and at times has made them hard to find but Zappos has always had them. so I can always find my favorite tennis shoe.

I love Jack Purcell. These are my 3rd pair as I wear them a lot. They have more support than other Converse styles and get more comfortable over time. Zappos is the best. Quick delivery and easy returns.

Brands I'd also recommend: converse dainty style, Keds.

Bought these for my son for school, on Zappos because we couldn't find this shoe in local stores in his size. Love Zappos' selection! Converse is a cute shoe, I understand why kids like them. But they are not made to be durable, unfortunately. They wear out quickly. It's a shame, too, because Converse could easily increase the quality and durability with little increase in cost to produce.

I was hesitant to get these at first because I need shoes with arch support or else my feet will hurt for the next few days. I was really surprised how comfortable they were after wearing them for a whole day at work. I always loved the style of this shoe and I highly recommend it!

What I like about Jack Purcell Converse over the traditional Chuck T's is that they feel more comfortable without having to add any arch support or insoles for added comfort. These shoes are ready to wear and enjoy!

These are not the same Jack Purcell sneakers I have bought from Zappos in the past. This current version is cheaper and less comfortable also visually different. Please note the other reviews that bring the compromises to light.

Brands I'd also recommend: I wouldn't recomend anything made by converse from Zappos Especially John Varvatos

Excellent quality, clean, fresh, crisp look! They are close to true size. I bought my regular size and feel like 1/2 a size smaller would have been perfect, but depending on the thickness of your typical sock, your actual size would be just right. I love these shoes, the comfort level is top notch. Awesome deal for a classic shoe. Fast shipping, great experience with Zappos.

This shoes look great and are very comfortable for the days you go out to hangouts. I do not recommend using them for walking long distances. The only problem I had is that they run half a size larger, like All-Star Converse. Check them out!

I tried my regular size in these, but they were too tight and narrow. Then I tried a half size larger, and they were too wide and long. So I basically am giving up on Converse. None of their shoes fit me anymore.

I love these shoes! They are not a bright navy - instead they are muted and easy to match with anything. I wear mostly converse shoes and these are definitely my favorite pair!

This is my first pair of JPs and overall I'm impressed. Fits true to size, width, and a moderate arch support. The insole is thicker than most insoles that come with shoes - super cushiony. It's true the insole covers part of the two eyelets on the side but it's not a deal breaker. Quality-wise they look well made but we'll see after some time. When I get new shoes, the first thing I swap out are the insoles but I'll keep the ones that came with the shoes.

I never write reviews, but I have 2 things to say about my experience with the "new" Jack Purcell: 1) My experience with Zappos was great. 2) This is not the same Jack Purcell as before. I had a pair of Jack Purcells that lasted me 3 years. They were the best shoes I owned. The new version is completely different and made of cheaper, weaker materials than before, but has the same price. The new pair lasted 3 months before I could literally see holes in the seams all over the top of the shoe. The tongue, which used to be padded, barely exists, and the new insole is in pieces. I'd like to think that Converse made these changes for reasons other than cutting cost, but it's hard to think of one. It's just a shame.

A classically styled shoe that goes great with a pair of shorts or khakis. It runs true to size in both width and length but it has little in the way of arch support. It is not a good shoe for a long day on your feet!

As canvas shoes go these were more comfortable than others that I have tried. I have owned JP's in the past and as other reviewers have noted some cost cutting measures have been instituted. Even so, they are better than other brands I have tried. As to arch support, I replaced the included full length insert with an aftermarket one and the shoes work for me. Cannot comment on durability as have only had the shoes for a number of weeks. So far I am happy with the purchase.

The outside front of the shoe is not as round as the pictures show. It's much more pointy looking. Aside from the above, they are surprisingly very comfortable and look nice as well. "2 big toes up!!"

The sizing in these (dictated by Converse) is way off. I wear a women's 10, and for years when I wore the old version of Jack Purcells, I always wore a men's 8. Now it says a men's 8.5 is equal to a women's 10 - no true. These shoes were way too long on my foot. I plan to exchange for a men's 8 and see what happens. I was also disappointed in the changes Converse has made to this shoe - a lot more shoe lace holes added on the larger size, and the blue smile is no longer a layer under the toe cap - just at the same level.

I usually wear a 6.5 and these were about 2 sizes tooo big. The quality of the cut on the shoe doesn't look too wonderful either. It's sad to know that the quality has gone down. I will have to look elsewhere to replace the current pair that I have. :(

I used to wear Chuck Taylors, then moved to Jack Purcells to try something with just a bit more support, which they gave me. The only problem was Jack Purcells don't last long for me after daily wear. My last pair only lasted 5 months before the side of the sole was coming apart from the canvas. My shoelaces also came untied all the time when the shoes became older. It may be that I needed new laces, but I never had that problem with the Chuck Taylors. Next time I will give the Adidas Gazelle a shot to see if they will last me a little longer. As far as color - I found the black ones were the right color and style for me to use with almost any casual outfit to look casual and still nice. The white ones made me feel a lot older, very suburbanite taking her kids to soccer - nothing wrong with that, I just didn't expect it to have that look.
