Converse Jack Purcell - Hey these sneaks are great!! I wore them when I was a teenager, and just on a whim I looked online to see if there was any chance of getting a pair. I am so happy to have discovered Zappos- they are the best!!!!!

Love them! These shoes have been a favorite of mine for years! They look really cute with jeans and capris. The only bad thing is they don't have much of an arch...so they're not the greatests for long days on your feet. They fit maybe just a 1/2 size big. But not to the point where I needed to send mine back for a smaller size.

Mmm, Converse - I have had about 3 pairs of Purcells over my lifetime, and wore each pair many years before they fell apart. However, this is my first pair since Converse was absorbed by... was it Nike? The footbed is actually a lot MORE comfortable, and everything's a little bit thicker and cushier... BUT! I originally bought the same size I have always worn and had to return them. Something funky happened to the sizes... If you have had older Purcells, be sure to get a HALF size bigger than you are used to!

Brands I'd also recommend: chucks, adidas orignals...

I love these shoes! I have always been a Converse girl, but I thought I would give the JP's another try after many, many years of getting the regular All Stars. These are GREAT! Way more comfy than the originals... they have arch supports now!! I have found my new lifelong shoe!!

My Jack Purcell’s- They took a couple of wearings for me to break them in. they hurt my pinky toe the first time I wore them for a long time. But... they are much more comfortable now. They look really cute though. They are cute shoes for girls!!

Awesome! I love these shoes! I swing dance and they are perfect for that because the bottom doesn't have much traction. When you first get them they have to be broken in a little bit because they tend to press in on your toes on the sides. Eventually they loosen up and are really comfortable.

I ordered these because I wanted a pair of Converse and the Chuck Taylor is too played out. These are more stylish and more for grown-ups... I couldn't find any stores that carry the Jack Purcell’s, they all only had the Chuck Taylors. So I tried the Chucks on and I needed a size 7.5 (which is about .5 to 1 size smaller than my other shoes)... I then ordered the JPs 7.5, and they felt a bit tighter than the CTs. I love how they look, but they are really uncomfortable. So they will be going back to Zappos. I will hold out for the leather version to be on sale to give Jack Purcell’s another try. Again they look great, but your feet WILL hurt BADLY when you break them in. (I picked up a pair of the leather Chuck Taylor at Off 5th and they're great, so I'm hoping the Jack Purcell leather ones will be as soft too.)

Brands I'd also recommend: The leather version, leather Chuck Taylor, and maybe the new wide Chuck Taylor

Jack Purcell Tennis Shoes White on White- I love my shoes. I think they actually run one to two sizes to big. I had problems getting the right size but returning them through Zappos was so easy. They actually sent me the other pair before I shipped the other size that didn't fit. Excellent Customer Service. I will definitely buy from Zappos again. Keep up the good work!

Finally I find a pair of shoes I like! These shoes have such a distinct undeniable look. Looks best with a pair of short socks. They go well with anything. They are reasonably priced which is great. Zappos is great as always. Didn't have to return for another size, but you really should go for the 1/2 size below if you are used to Nike/Adidas sizes. Traction stinks in snow, but stays pretty dry inside due to the rubber toe cap. Some days it feels like the heel is slipping and other days it doesn’t. Color migration to socks will happen so wear some junk socks for the first week or so. A little wider than marked which is great because I have a little wider than normal foot. I will definitely buy this shoe again.

JPs - I got these shoes from Nordstroms last spring. They were brown with pink detailing. Super cute BUT, unlike my Chucks they've ripped where the canvas meets the heel part of the shoe. And this happend a couple of months ago so they really didn't last that long.

Received this shoe in less than a week. Wore them for the first time on the way out one really early morning and forgot the socks but I didn't get any blisters or weird rubbing. Felt very comfortable and even had support for my high arch. Great comfy everyday sneaker.

Zappos is awesome- I've ordered about 5 pairs of shoes from Zappos and I have been very pleased with the customer service and products received. Zappos has a great selection of shoes, excellent customer service (phone and email), and has shipped the shoes that I've ordered immediately after I placed the order. All shoes have been top quality. I've been extremely pleased with ordering from Zappos and will continue to do so. Their Web site is also up-to-date, providing current product availability and information. Thank you, Zappos!

Jack Purcell Tennis Shoes- These shoes were purchased as a Chanukah present for my daughter. She already has 2 other pairs of these shoes and requested the Jack Purcell’s in black. She wears different color shoes with different outfits. She absolutely feels the shoes are very comfortable and stylish. As an aside, I wore Jack Purcell’s in white in high school.

Love 'em! I love the new Jack Purcell’s! I've been wearing Jack Purcell’s for years and was very wary of the redesign, but it's great. As good-looking as always and SO MUCH more comfortable! I wear them every day, and I'm on my feet a lot. Also, they are still veggie. No leather at all. Should be listed in the 'vegetarian shoes' section.

Be Prepared! These shoes are loose, heavy, and after a minute or more they start to pinch my toes and plus it has almost no grip. Also when running the heels on my feet start to feel dangerously loose. People, if looking for a good all around shoe, go with a leather or mesh running shoe. When purchasing this shoes don’t be surprised it isn’t all what people say it to be.

Brands I'd also recommend: Buy running shoes instead

Not a true size, blisters, no arch support - Not pleased with these. I'm a perfect 7 1/2 mens, and these are not. Not enough arch support, and heel curves in at the top toward ankle, which is causing blisters.

Bought the shoes for a birthday present. Timely delivery. Unfortunatley, they were too small. Called the 800 number and had new size reordered. Very friendly service. All taken care of. Thanks.

Feels good - This shoe solved my problem of needing a very light tennis shoe. After having worn Tretorn canvas tennis shoes for years, I despaired of ever finding anything as good. Happy to have found this shoe.

Jack Purcell cp - The black/white Jack Purcells are comfortable except the heel needs to be more protective. It gives me blisters on the ankle. I still love the look. The fabric is a little different from the older version. both are good. For the most part i love the shoes.

Brands I'd also recommend: Probably the high jack purcels

Jack Purcell/Old School Shoes - I used to be able to these shoes at almost any good sporting goods store,but those days are over with the advent of "super stores". Was going to order directly from converse,but I beleive they were a little more expensive. I have always hesitated buying shoes online,but I really wanted Jack Purcell's. They fit perfectly and are the real deal. Thanks

Great shoe! The extra padding on the sides and the tongue make it a lot more comfortable than the old version of Jack Purcell. I just didn't like how the fit of this shoe is a half size bigger than marked. It makes my foot look really long. But overall, I love this shoe because it's so classic and goes with everything and anything!
