Fun shoe. It's very comfortable even without an arch (which I prefer). Looks great with skinny jeans and shorts. Great to walk in. Pretty narrow looking. It doesn't feel narrow. I am wearing this shoe much more than I thought I would. I keep grabbing the Jack Purcells instead of the Pumas I just bought.

Love these shoes! They fit true to size, more so than my Chucks, which tend to run a little large. These also provide a little more arch support and look great. Highly recommend. Plus, can't say enough about Zappos...fantastic customer service. These were sent overnight and when I needed to exchange the size (because I thought I needed to go down in size), they sent me the replacements before I had even sent these back. Best service...bar none!

Great price point and fast shipping. However, I’m usually a 9.5/10 and the 9.5 feels pretty loose. I had planned on wearing them sockless in the summertime, but that isn’t really possible, so I’d probably suggest sizing down .5.

I've never owned Converse, and wanted to get a casual and lightweight pair of sneakers. In comparing the Jack Purcell to the All Stars, I settled on the JP, just because they looked sturdier and more stylish. Having worn them now for over a month pretty regularly, I love them. They're lightweight, but include a better sole, structure, and (in my opinion) look than the other Converse. Compared to other sneakers, you have to keep in mind that these have pretty much no tread and very little support. But when you're buying Converse, that's typically what you're looking for. Pros: Lightweight body (walls, mostly), classy-looking sneaker, comfy sole (at least as compared to the All Stars). Cons: You won't be using these in a marathon; but then you wouldn't be buying Converse to run over 20 miles either.

Great shoe and lots of fun to wear. The toe is a little narrow, but they are quite comfortable. I was a long-time Chuck Taylor wearer, but these are more mature looking. There isn’t a day I wear them that I don’t get a comment (positive) on them. I like the black as it has a bit more attitude.

Love Zappos and these shoes. They are my second pair and I find them quite comfortable. After I ordered them they were at my house the next day when I got home from work even though I hadn't picked overnight shipping. Thank you zappos!

Love these shoes!! They go with everything and are classics! Tad narrow along the widest parts of the ends of my feet, easily adjusted by loosening the laces. Took a couple of wears to break them in, but I never got blisters and haven't had any problems. Love them!

Shoes fit true to size; just depends on if you wear them with socks or not. Try your typical size if wearing with socks!!! Originally ordered a 6US and returned them through Zappos return system. Transaction was flawless and I had the new size back in 2 days. Couldn't ask for better service.

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.

Brands I'd also recommend: other Converse and Reeboks

Great Shoes and Great Service - I have owned these shoes many times so I know I like them a lot already but the new ones seem to be more comfrotable which is nice. Also the Zappos service was amazing, they shipped the shoes right away and offer free return service if they were not the right size. I will do business with them again for sure.

A great shoe - I have loved Jack Purcell's for 20 years, its getting hard to find then. This shoe at Zappos is more like the orignal then any of the others with a new soft insole, it runs about a 1/2 size larger then before.

Converse Jack Purcell - These new Purcells seem to have more arch support than the older version. They run a bit bigger though.

Very cute, stylish shoes - Once again Zappos has provided the best customer service and my shoes arrived in 2-3 business days (and I live in the boonies). The Jack Purcell's are very cute little shoes and they're pretty comfortable. I suppose one complaint that I have is that where the rubber toe ends and meets the canvas (by the laces) it wears on my toes a little bit and cuts in a little. However, I wore these the day after I wore some pumps that rubbed the same spot so that spot was a little irritated. I'm sure that after I wear the shoes in a little bit that it won't be a problem. I generally wear a size 7 and ordered a size 5.5 (as these come in mens sizes) and the fit is just fine. These do not have the best arch support (like Converse) so don't wear them hiking but they're just fine for around town. These look great with jeans and capris. I like my Jack's.
