Great casual sneaker. What more do you need me to say? If you have ever worn the Converse Chuck Taylor, then you will like this sneaker.

Love the retro look! They're a tiny bit rough on the pinky toe and heel, but since they're canvas I'm hoping they'll soften up with some wear. Right now I'm using some moleskin for protection.

Perfect summer sneakers. Very cute with dresses and can be worn with anything! I wore mine to a wedding and got many compliments. Keep in mind these run very narrow in the front. I normally wear a 8.5 womens in Chuck Taylors but I had to move up to a 9 in Jack Purcells. They do fit true to size but I believe these shoes were designed to be worn without socks hence the narrow design.

A great summer shoe. Much more comfort and support than the classic cons. Jack Purcells have a special insole that gives them a little more arch support and some added comfort.

Very comfortable and stylish looking. The metal aglets on the laces are a nice touch, too. If you have wide feet, you may need to go half a size up. I normally wear 11.5 E shoes, size 12 D in these fit great.

My husband loves these, and they look so great in the summer! They do, however, run a bit big - he usually wears a 14 and the 13 worked fine.

I've worn JP's for the past few years as my go-to, subtle fashion accessory. they pair well with 501s, chinos, or shorts. the insert alone is cushiony and supportive and could probably be sold on their own. I wore these for a couple weeks while tooling around Vietnam (tons of pavement walking mixed in with jungle here and there), and I didn't develop a single blister or any muscle stiffness. And this is coming from a guy who has balky knees and hips. This is pure comfort. Don't let the casual appearance deceive you.

Cute, classic and comfy! The new design with the extra cush is amazing! I walked around Disney World for 3 days in these and they were the only shoe I own (and I own a lot) that could have done it. One day in my running shes and I ended up with blisters, I was saved the next day when I put my feet back in these babies. I highly recommend these, in fact I'll get another pair in white and the blue ones too.

I ordered these because I needed a cute pair of sneakers that wasn't a pair of gym shoes. These are comfier than Chuck Taylors and not as expected. They look great and people always comment on them.

Love 'em! However, it took me ordering them a couple of times to get the right fit, because I followed the previous reviews. I always order regular Converse shoes 1 full size smaller, but a lot of people said to order the Jack Purcell a 1/2 size bigger. This did not work for me at all, and the final proper fit came a 1/2 size smaller than my regular shoe size. I have pretty normal sized feet, not wide, nor narrow. Just wanted to let those with regular feet know. :)

My first pair of Jack Purcell's and I have to say I'm pleased. Great classic look that will wear well with shorts, jeans & khakis. I normally wear a 10.5 which is what I ordered. It was a perfect fit. Thanks Zappos for such great service!

I've always been a huge fan of Chuck Taylor's. I've had back problems for a few years now, and I couldn't handle the lack of cushion in those shoes. I bought these after reading that they come with their own insert, and I'm glad I did! These shoes are great. I plan to buy the black ones as soon as I have some extra cash. My only (very minor) complaint about them is that the "smile" on the shoes are different sizes. Would have been nice for them to match. The metal aglets on the laces are a nice touch. I highly recommend these shoes. Very comfortable and cute.

It takes a few days to break these in and you might suffer from a blister or two, but after that they are perfectly classic.

Bought this shoe for 13 year old daughter. It's really cute, sporty. Looks great with tall fun socks! Zappos is the only way to go. Prices competitive but shipping and customer service beyond compare. Upgraded to quick shipping at no cost. Best way to shop!

Purchased 10.5, I wear 10.5 narrow with very narrow heel and a high arch. I find it difficult to find casual shoes that are narrow enough, so I don't walk out of the heel plus allows room for my high arch. These shoes fit perfectly. Love the internal padding for the bottom of the foot and slight arch support. I'm not sure how these will fit on man's foot or a women with wider feet but highly recommended for women with narrower feet. I intend to purchase other colors for casual summer wear with summer dresses, maxi to mini.

I had been considering these shoes on a recommendation for a good while, and I finally went ahead and got them. I am so glad I did! These are the white canvas sneakers you are looking for. The fit is fine, though if you are looking for good arch support - which isn't a big deal to me personally - in spite of good padding, these really won't be any different than Chuck Taylors. Their look is really tough to beat, however, especially when worn with no-show footies/liners for socks. By far, these have to be one of the best footwear decisions I've made.

Very comfortable, versatile shoe. I have a pair of regular Converse All Stars which, don't get me wrong, are awesome, but don't compare to the comfortability of these shoes. The rubber toe cap and surrounding boot are a little much (a bit heavy), but overall are great shoes.

Brands I'd also recommend: Vans, Element, Sanuk, Cre8tive Recreation, Mark McNairy

These shoes are great! They have good support and are comfortable. They wear well and look good from the moment they are out of the box, to when they are worn in like your favorite pair of jeans.

Great shoe! Fits a little snug to me, but fit alright. A fantastic and stylish option. It is considerably more comfortable than its cousin the Chuck Taylor.
