Blast from the Past! I just love these shoes. I wore them as a kid and they are still as fun, hip, cool, and comfortable as they were back then.

This shoe is awesome...I've been wearing Chuck Taylors for over 20 years-not the most comfortable shoe, but loved the vintage look...But these Jack's are tremendously comfortable and they look great...very vintage!

Hail to JP - Love this shoe for Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. Converse has improved the shoe over time. I love the new colors. Keep up the good work Converse and I'll continue to support your ageless classic, Jack Purcell.

Happy shoes - I love my white on white Jack Purcell’s. They are so comfortable. One day I have worn them for 16 hours straight and my feet felt great. I would highly recommend the shoes and Zappos.com.

Sweet! Just What I Expected!! Awesome - Get them in multiple colors, true fit, don't lace them too tight at first so you don't stretch them out, let them mold to your foot...wear them loose, tighten later…

The new insole technology makes all the difference with comfort. I never could wear these shoes before because of my high arch. But now they are made with the support of a running shoe.

These are my favorite shoes of all time! I order a pair of Jack Purcell's every 1-2 years! They are a really cute, retro-looking pair of shoes, and they look great with everything from shorts to jeans! They run about a 1/2 size big, and I have to admit that they look better on a smaller foot!

Still a classic! It has been about 30 years since I last had a pair of Jack Purcell canvas tennies but these are and will always be a classic! The redesigned insole provides better comfort and support than the originals but they are otherwise unchanged and look great!

Classic Jack Purcell - With many of the other reviewers recommending 1/2 size smaller or 1/2 size bigger, I worried a little about what size to order for myself--should I go up in size or down? I'm a perfect size 8, which is the size I ordered, and my tennies fit great! I wore them to work with my black pant suit that I've had for years, and three women complimented me on my outfit. :)

Best sneaker ever! I love these things! The changes they've made to increase the comfort are great - the look of the shoe isn't significantly changed at all.

The Purcell CP is NOT the old Jack Purcell... ...it's better. Classic Jack outside, updated comfy inside. Removable foam insole, not the old attached insole with the weirdly placed arch. Also a nice soft lining and sole is less stiff than the old Jack. Expensive for a canvas shoe, but the only "classic sneaker" I know that's as comfy as a "modern" athletic shoe. Not for retro purists who dig discomfort (or skaters who need thin soles for board feel).

Excellent Old Skool Shoe! These shoes are more comfortable than the regular Jack Purcell’s. More arch support and padding on the tongue. I wore them all day right out of the box and had no problem with them. They run REALLY big, so get about 1 and 1/2 sizes smaller than your regular shoe size. These shoes are the surfer shoe of choice of the 1950's, but way more comfortable.

The best place to buy your Jacks - I had a great experience with my order from Zappos. The shoes arrived fast and they fit perfect. I didn't have to pay S&H either! Plus, they were cheaper than ordering from the converse website!

I've always wanted a pair of Converse but was always wary because of the comfort factor. But these are really great. It only took me a day to break them in. I wear them everywhere and with practically everything. They're classic, feel great and look even better. LOVE!

Jacks - I bought these shoes for my daughter who absolutely loves them! We are youth pastors and I noticed that 7 out of our 20 kids have them. Not only are they the "in" thing, my daughter says they are very comfy...

These shoes are great but run a size larger. I normally wear a 7 but had to go down to a 6. If you wear socks with these than I would say just go down a half size.
