These are comfortable and just interesting enough to be stylish. They are a solid pair of white sneakers. They are very comfortable to wear and stand around in, but not recommended for walking missions: you will probably suffer chafing at the front of your foot due to the rigid cap. That comes with wearing Chucks, I suppose.

Second pair of these shoes. Absolutely love the fit, and they go with pretty much anything. They're just slightly different enough from classic chuck's that people notice and always a positive comment.

Great product! These are my all-time favorite shoes. I just wish they didn't change the styling. They seem much cheaper.

I've been wearing these shoes for roughly 5-6 months and I have to say that I'm incredibly impressed by the durability and look of the shoes. There is little arch support, but the insole that they do give you is comfortable enough that you can stand around for a while without your feet hurting. These are both fasionable and classy, and look great with nearly anything! Thinking about buying a second pair. Just wonderful all around.

These are not the Purcell's everyone loves! Very cheap new design! Will not buy these shoes again until they bring back the quality. So disappointed!

These have been my main sneakers ever since 8th grade (I'm a junior in college now). I have owned and worn at least 20 pairs of the black low top Jack Purcells. These sneakers go with everything. I absolutely loved these sneakers...but recently the ones being produced by Converse have become very cheap in quality. I assume Converse is trying to cut corners to minimize costs and bring in profit but to abandon loyal customers such as myself is inexcusable. The change that bothers me the most is that the new laces that come with these Jack Purcells today are no longer the durable metal-tip laces that were characteristic of Jack Purcells, these new laces are cheap and get dirty and worn out in a few days. I have to find a new pair of sneakers to replace these as my main pair of sneakers.

I love these shoes. I wore a pair out and tried to live without them, but then had to order another pair. I think they have more style and support than the regular Chucks.

These shoes are super cute. They're more comfortable than the Chuck Taylors but they do need to broken in. The arch support is minimal at best so anticipate needing additional arch supports. They run big so I had to go a half size down. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase. Love these shoes.

I love my Jack Purcell's! They are super fly. Super comfortable and I feel like I'm in the cool club when people say "Hey! Nice Purcell's" Very comfy, although you might need additional arch support.

They have completely changed these. I've been wearing this exact shoe for a million years and all of a sudden they have made them super cheap and uncomfortable. Padding is gone, eyelets are in a strange place, it's not comfortable around the ankles, etc. What a dumb decision to make these shoes crap now.

Jack Purcells are comfortable/stylish shoes that are great when going casual. I liked the shoes when I wore them in college and I am glad I have become reunited with the brand.

The other reviews are spot on. Great shoes, just not the same as Jack Purcells used to be. Anyway, great Zappos service as usual. The shoes were here quickly and exactly what I ordered.

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.

Purcell's are on canvas shoe that can do no wrong. With more arch support than Chuck's, I frequently buy these, at least once a year. I have had a total of three pairs already and love them.

First of all, I continue to be impressed with Zappos selection, delivery, and customer service! I refer my friends to Zappos all the time! These are not the Jacks that I have worn for more than 30 years. These shoes are not up to the high standards that Converse has afforded me and their customers forever. I'm not going to list all of the negatives, because my colleagues have already done so in their reviews and I certainly concur. I am not happy. Jack Purcell would not be happy. Chuck Taylor would not be happy. Converse, please bring back the Jacks!

These are great shoes. They are comfortable and cute. They fit well. I usually wear 6 in Converse, but in these, my normal size, 6½ women, fit me great. They also have a little more cushion than regular Chuck Taylors.

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.

These shoes are very shoddily made. The "banners" on the heels peel off at the corners very quickly, the laces are insanely long, and the "side walls" detached from the canvas after only one evening of wearing them. I honestly thought that I had received counterfeit shoes until I decided to actually read the reviews. If you want similar quality shoes, save yourself the money and buy a pair of AND1s or Air Walks.

This classic has been totally botched up in its new incarnation. Read other reviews on how everything from the canvas, padding, embroidered tongue and smile have changed, for the worse. Such a classic piece of Americana, ruined.
