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!

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.

Great Classic - Great classic style. Like an upgraded Chuck Taylor shoe. A bit more comfortable and cushioned.

Wore this shoe for years until they cut corners and product changed. Been wearing Chucks since; they always 1/2 size big (I wear 11 reg/10.5 Chucks). As these are also Cons, ordered these accordingly and found them too small. Zappos being the wonder they are shipped me my regular size and this fit better. It's now a well-enough-made shoe, more sturdy/supportive than Chuck offers-but nowhere near as comfortable. Narrow toe, and they take a damn long time to break in. Been romping around in them for a week and it's still painful. For comfort, stick to Chucks, or for a similarly classic look and great support check out some old Pumas. Cha dooky.

Runs somewhat narrow due to the rubber rand. Also, as I have noticed before, the converse foot beds are junk. They are lumpy in all the wrong places. They do not fit any contour of my foot at least. Same for the Chuck's I've tried on. Ordering up trying again.

This shoe is not soft. It hurt my feet. The reinforced toe was uncomfortable and the shoe cut into my skin. It offers no support and is too wide for me. Great looking though.

Pretty disappointed with Converse for these. I've had a pair of Jack Purcells on rotation in my closet since I was 15 (~4 pairs in total) and they've always been my go-to. But like many have said in reviews, their quality has really gone down. These do not fit the same as past pairs I've had; the footbed is not as comfy nor does it have as good of arch support, the laces don't have the silver tips anymore, the tongue is no longer printed with their logo, they run smaller than they used to, and they just don't feel as substantial anymore. Decided to return this pair. After 10 years, it be time to find a new pair of white sneakers. :(

I ordered these to replace an old pair of black Jack Purcells that I loved. There are a few small details in this new pair that was missing from my old pair that I found disappointing. These shoes do not have the metal tipped shoe laces and the tongue does not have the Jack Purcell stitching at the top. Again, small details but ones that I miss.

I've bought and worn Jack Purcells, Converse has made the product less durable, the canvas isn't as heavy duty. In this case less isn't more, I washed the shoes after wearing them for a while. I like my tennis shoes very clean and after one washing they had a small tear in the shoe. I also wish Converse hadn't tried to do a subtle redesign. I'm referring to the change in the famous smile on the toe of the shoe that was always imbedded in the rubber not on top of the shoe! Design still great looking but quality not the same.

Nice enough shoes, but the toe box for the Purcell is definitely tighter than for regular Converse. I had to go up nearly 3 sizes from what I normally wear in Converse for these to fit.

I was very disappointed with these shoes. I bought the same style a few years ago. (different color though) And they were the most comfortable shoes right out of the box. I wore them out and needed new ones. Bought these and they were very uncomfortable. It's been a few weeks now and they are just starting to get broken in. My feet are still hurting a bit. So I'm not happy with converse for changing what was a nice shoe to a not so nice shoe. Zappos however did a fine job on selling and shipping the shoes to me.

This is an extremely comfortable shoe, but the picture is misleading. The sole is a cream color that differs from the shoe lace. In addition there is an extra layer of shoe sole at the tip above where the toes are that make the shoe look bulky. Just wasn't what I was expecting so returning.

Bought these for my son for school, on Zappos because we couldn't find this shoe in local stores in his size. Love Zappos' selection! Converse is a cute shoe, I understand why kids like them. But they are not made to be durable, unfortunately. They wear out quickly. It's a shame, too, because Converse could easily increase the quality and durability with little increase in cost to produce.

These shoes are classics. They look great with jeans, shorts, even capris. Unfortunately they are not made like they used to be. They have never really had any arch support or a food insole, but now they are even worse. They are strictly stiff canvas that's cut way to high on the heel and rubs you raw. The toe is now one solid peace of rubber (it used to be made up of 2 or 3). Even the laces are cheap. I have a pair that are about 10 years old that I can no longer wear and bought these as a replacement. Don't do it get some Sperrys or something else that is made with comfort and quality in mind.

These shoes are super comfortable and light but a bit masculine for my tastes. Perhaps because there is less detailing, they have less dress-up potential than regular Converse sneakers. They go well with casual shorts, are okay with skinny jeans, and would probably be better with straight-leg jeans. I would not recommend wearing them with dresses.

The shoe would be good if it wasn't for the size being off. I will be returning this purchase. I was really excited to find this shoe. I wore a pair of these in the 70's and 80's. They lasted great. I will be trying another size. I'm sure that I could rate this procuct higher if it fit right.

These shoes are cute and have great arch support. However, I purchased them with the intention of wearing them as shoes to walk around in all day. They gave me really bad blisters in my heel and were generally uncomfortable after I wore them for more than a couple of hours.

I purchased this shoes for my father. The shoe runs half a size smaller and we exchanged it without a breeze thanks to Zappos amazing service. Unfortunately the shoes weren't comfortable and caused blisters in his feet at the first use. I contacted Zappos and their great customer service solved the problem. Thanks!

Here's the deal: I've been a Jack Purcell girl for a long time. However, I've put up with a lot as far as quality and sizing go. Sometimes they are true to size, sometimes they are smaller than they should be, and they fall apart quickly. The back inside heel part has been a consistent issue of rubbing completely out within a few months, the rubber coming apart, etc. I love how they look brand new but anymore, there seems to be a lack in quality control when they make them (don't get me started on how the Chuck Taylors practically disintegrate). I am a city girl, using these to tool around town on my bike, and hang out, and at this price for a simple shoe that I have to replace almost yearly? No more. I've found a fantastic - and more comfortable - replacement in the Adidas "Honey" skate shoe. Similar in style and way more comfy. The quality is just plain better.

I wear women\'s size 12W (C or D width usually). I ordered these in a men\'s 12 since typically sneakers fit small on me. These fit fine, but I will return them because they are not flattering - the white toe looks too much like a clown shoe on my big foot, and I need something more understated.

These look great, but man are they small for their size. I wear a 12 normally in Converses and that’s a little large -- I can wear a really bulky sock and be fine -- and these in 12 pinch across the foot and the toebox is right there. They do look great.

Classic Look and Feel: WYSIWYG - I love simple things, and this shoe is simple. It is a well-made (in Vietnam, of all places) canvas and rubber gym shoe -- a classic design reproduced at a premium price. Don't expect any extra comfort, though there is a very tiny bit of padding on the tongue. The shoe (with athletic socks) feels slightly smaller than other shoes the same size. If you plan on going sockless, order your regular size.
