Love it! I had been looking everywhere for this shoe and finally decided to try this site for the first time and I am completely impressed by the site, the shoes, etc. The shoes feel great! They look great with a pair of jeans or casual slacks and they have that retro feel that I wanted without a steep price tag. They are comfortable but after all day your arches can feel a little tired since there is minimal arch support compared to athletic shoes now.

Great alternative to Chucks - Great looking alternative to the Chuck Taylor All-Stars--I've been wearing Chucks for 20 years but wanted to try something a little different. These fit the bill--same great classic canvas look with a bit more comfort. Be advised that there's no need to "size down" as with Chucks--these run true to size.

Love my Jack Purcell tennis shoes - I wanted the retro Converse look with comfort. The Converse Jack Purcell gave me both. A fun shoe for knocking around in that goes just about any wear.

Super comfortable - So much more comfortable than my Chucks! They felt a little big - about a quarter to a half size bigger than marked. I was too impatient to wait for the smaller size, so I wear them anyway, and it works out fine.

Toe issues - I love the look of Converse shoes, but I’m having the same issue with these that I did with my All-Stars-- horrible pinching where my pinky toes meet the foot. After almost ten years my All-Stars are almost comfortable, but the pinch in these seems worse. I do have wide feet, but the rest of the shoe seems passably comfortable. I may have to attempt some stretching because the shoes are so cute...

Good Looking Shoe - Good looking shoe. I rally like it. It runs about .5-1.0 size larger than nice. Get a half size smaller than normal. As for comfort, it’s a shoe that has been around for 30+ years (how comfortable could it be). I bought it for looks. It's not uncomfortable but I wouldn't go play a game of basketball in them. Hope this helps.

Looks nice, at least - They felt about 1/2 size too small at first but I got used to that. However the fabric inside of both heels ripped out within a few weeks, exposing the rubber inner skin. I wore them walking this morning and now I have a nice big blister on my left heel. Grrr. They look better than Chucks but that's what I'm ordering again even though Chucks are basically disposable after six months, they last longer than these did.

Stylish alternative to the All Star - Love Chuck Taylors but wanted something a bit different. These Jack Purcell's fit the bill. Surprisingly padded and well made. These shoes fit right in to my rotation. Get yourself some.

Great shoe, wish it had more arch support though - Very good-looking and inexpensive shoe, much cleaner-looking than the Chucks. I wish it had more support thought b/c it can hurt if you're on your feet a lot.

These are possibly the best shoes I've ever owned. The size fit pretty good and seemed marked as ordered. The look was great, but at first there was some chafing on the back of my heel. After awhile it stopped. These are the best shoes I've ever owned I recommend them for anybody.

This shoe is pretty much the same as it's always been (i.e. super-cool), but now it has an insole with some support and the shoelaces have a cool metal end-thingee instead of the plastic kind that falls apart and makes the laces fray at the ends. These are a good choice if Chucks are a little too ubiquitous for you. I said that it felt true to size, but it's probably more like an eight or a quarter size larger, but not a half.

Just what the doctor ordered - I'm not a lover of running shoes. They make your feet look like small boats. I had a pair of the JP's years ago and liked the overall comfort. These "improved" JP's are so much more comfortable. When I intend to go sockless (the best way to wear these), I always buy a half size smaller. These fit very nicely and look ma, no blisters! If you're looking for a cool looking non running shoe, this is an excellent choice.

Same great style but comfort is much improved. Converse has really improved upon the original with these new Purcell’s. The tongue now has some padding so you don't have to worry about it sliding to the side of your foot and the rubber on the soles seems better as well. Overall I'd say they're pretty darn comfy and look good with all your gear.

Classic style, improved comfort - Before owning a pair of the slightly more expensive J.P.'s I was under the impression that there was no difference between the two versions. They look the same, but trust me, the difference is massive! In the extra money you are buying the ability to walk an extra couple miles. These are great shoes.

Comfy and cute! I ordered these as an alternative to the All Stars as I found those had no support whatsoever. These are very cute and now have additional cushioning so they are comfortable to boot! I only wish they came in more colors! They fit perfectly right out of the box. No break-in time required.

Good looking comfortable Shoe but poor build quality - The shoes look good and are very comfortable but I've had mine for less than two months and the heel lining is mostly torn/rubbed away and now the rubber is side is separating away from the canvas upper where the shoe bends when I walk.
