Great all around shoe - I love these....where I'm from no one has them so they look original. They are very comfortable and great to wear all day with no problems. My only complaints are: 1.) Being white they get dirty easy. 2) I got my correct size at first, but they were TWO sizes too big on me so I had to go down 2 sizes.

Jack Purcells - I can not explain how rad Zappos is...they shipped the shoes so fast, literally in a few days...purcells are so hard to find, and Zappos had them...they fit perfectly, they're unbelieveable comfortable, and they look good with all kinds of clothing...oh, and since I'm in a band, i've played several shows (we play metal/hardcore, so i can assure you these shoes are tough. I've never slipped or missed a beat in these shoes...they're great all around shoes...I couldn't be happier with the service I received from Zappos, and I plan on getting another pair of Purcells really soon, from them...

Brands I'd also recommend: None, there's no greater shoe...they're so much more comfortable that regular Chuck Taylor Converse.

My kids love these shoes, and they are hard to find. They were worn by the high school kids were we lived before, and now my kids seem to be starting a trend with them here at their new school. I think that you should keep them in stock.

Lauren's M

from clarksville, TN

My daughter loves her Jack Purcell shoes as she is making them the new rage among her friends. She loves the fact that they were the old rage when I was about 9 years old in the 70's. They do not rub slightly on her heel as they did mine. She has no complaints about the support they offer (which was a big complaint my athletic brothers had in the 70's) but she doesn't use them as court shoes like we did. Lauren's words: "They are excellent. They feel awesome. They are very cute and go with everything."

Brands I'd also recommend: I have the leather version. Very nice and easy to keep clean.

Classic Practicality - So comfortable, so relaxing....so fun! The originator of the best....I'll buy more in other colors, and you can't beat it with the price. Once again, Zappos provided free expedited shipping (ordered Friday night, received Monday), and even $5 CREDIT because the shoebox was slightly scuffed!!!! (The shoes were fine!) How's that for professionalism?!?!?!? No more shoes from the retail stores for me---only Zappos!

Love the Purcell - I have always tried to find the black Purcell Converse sneaker in stores and usually come up empty. I'm thrilled I could find it at Zappos. It's a hip shoe that's comfortable for walking, which is just what I wanted.

Jack Purcell's - These shoes are great. They are comfortable, casual and go with just about anything. And Zappos made the whole ordering process just as great. The shoes came fast and were packaged nice and neatly. The overall quality of my experience will definitely bring me back for more.

Brands I'd also recommend: just about any converse or puma shoes

7th grade all over again - Well, they've been updated in little ways since then, but they're still the classic shoe that you remember. I even find myself rubbing dirt from the sole of one onto the upper of the other too get rid of the too-new look, just like in the old days.

A *LITTLE* disappointed. This is a great looking shoe. A true classic. It has a very narrow toe box, however, and can get uncomfortable wearing them all day without socks. The footbed also seems to slip a little. The footbed adds a LOT of mass to the inside of the shoe. You can take it out and gain lots more room, but the bottom of the show is curved and if you have a wide foot, it, too, will get uncomfortable in a matter of hours. No problems at all with rubbing on the Achilles tendon. I'd probably just try the regular Jack Purcells next time.

Great Decision - I love these sneakers!!! They feel great and you can wear them without socks and they still feel and look wonderful! The only thing to remember when ordering these sneakers is order a 1/2 size smaller that what you usually wear. They run a little bit. Wonderful shoe!!

Good Basic Sneakers - I purchased these sneakers for my husband, who works out at the gym a lot. He wanted plain low sneakers and has always liked basic Converse. I, initially, ordered an 8 1/2, going by the reviews. They were a little too small on his one foot. I sent them back, and, as always, received prompt service from Zappos. He got the sz. 9 and is very pleased with them.
