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.

Brands I'd also recommend: Chuck Taylors, Simple, Vans

Thicker sole than the Chuck Taylors--much more comfortable. I ware an 11.5 wide and the size 12 fits me perfectly.

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.

Jack Purcell Shoes - Jack Purcell shoes were the "must have", "in shoe" when I was in junior high school. I had to have another pair. They wear like iron. I have one pair that is about 10 years old and I still wear them. Nothing beats the comfort of well broken in canvas.

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
