Have admired these sneakers from afar for a long time. Being a loyal Pro-Keds fan I've never taken the plunge. Well, life is short and new sneakers brighten my day and many of my outfits. I am glad I bought them. I chose the navy blue and am happy with the style, fit and comfort. Many reviewers bemoan the changes in the sneaker but as a first timer I am a fan.

Cute and comfy--I would not walk for miles in them, but for typical daily use--running errands, etc., I really like these! They have more arch support than the regular chuck taylors.

This is the basic canvas Jack Purcell shoe, which is the slightly upscale sibling of the Converse Chuck Taylors.There are also leather Jack Purcells for rain resistance and a dressier style and the Jack Purcell Signature shoes with a thicker insole and various added styling details.The basic Jack Purcell uses higher quality canvas and a better insole than the basic Jack Taylor shoes, making it more comfortable and more durable.The Jack Purcell is true to size so if you wear a 10 with New Balance or Nike you can wear a 10 in Jack Purcell.The JP is tight across the toe box and can rub on your small toe. My solution is to wear them with thick socks for two hours a day in the house for a week. They loosen up enough to wear all day and after a few weeks of frequent wear they conform to your foot for a snug and comfortable fit.If you like the canvas version, you will love the leather version which is rain resistant, dressy looking, and easy to keep clean.

I've always wanted a pair of Jack Purcell's and think they are so classic looking. I think they run a little too large, but with thicker socks, they are very comfortable. I don't wear these as walking shoes, more for style; I don't think I could wear them for a long time.

These are great for that funny old gym teacher look I was going for at the time. The toe section is a little tight and never going to stretch so if you have narrow feet be aware of that before purchasing.

Having never worn a pair of Cnverse, I was going to purchase the all white 'Chuck II' style, but saw the white Jack Purcells, and loved the slightly chunkier style! Pair them with cuffed jeans or a t-shirt dress for a clean, cute look. They are moderately comfortable to walk around in, and do not chafe like some other canvas shoes. I know these will be my go-to shoes year round!

bought these because they have a removable insole and i need to use orthotics. I wear a 6.5 to 7 D (women's). I purchased the size listed as size 7 women's and it is at least a half, if not whole, size too long. Sadly, the width is too narrow for D width so no point in trying smaller size

These bear little resemblance to my old, favorite Jack Purcells. They have a lot more rubber on the toe and a lot more, perhaps unnecessary, innersole. From the outside they now just look like All-Stars, are a bit overstated. True, original Jack Purcells were more elegant, even for sneakers. All that said they're perfectly comfortable. I'm just not sure why they're called Jack Purcells.

Shoe fits to size and is fairly comfortable. Not for walking all day, though. Not enough support.

The one I received, the sole appeared off-white compared to the rest of the shoe. I do not see this yellowish tinge from the ones at the shop.

Fits true to size. And much lighter and better fit than traditional Converse. The vents are covered by the insole, however, so they don't breathe as well as one one would expect.

This is my third pair of Jack Purcells (I've worn the others out), but for some reason this pair fits a little differently. It's a little bit bigger, looser maybe. They're still a staple of my wardrobe because they casual and comfortable.

These are great looking. But they fell apart pretty quickly after just a few months. The soles and the fronts were separating from the shoe.

I got these because the "Signature" model was unavailable in my size. While these are okay, they are not the ones I wanted, and Zappos still doesn't have the Signatures in size 11 white. Over a month! Is that a Zappos problem, or a Converse company problem? I don't know, but I'm still disappointed.

I decided to get the shoes despite negative reviews of current iteration. I remember loving the pair I owned when I was six years old, and I must say, the feeling is the same three decades later. Great shoe. Very comfortable. Tried Superga and the fit was not for me. They had an arch support in the wrong spot for me and did not flatter my foot. I think the Purcell's are more flattering on my foot. They seem true to size. I wear a 7.5 or an 8. The 7.5 fits me fine. Maybe the other version was better, but I have no experience of that one. I actually like the thin canvas for summer. I ordered the white. Made in China, but what isn't these days?

Jack Purcells are a classic. Yes they've updated the foot bed. I find them more comfortable than they used to be. And tons more comfortable than Chucks. The classic smile is still there, and it's made of rubber and not painted and doesn't rub off. I don't know what other people are talking about there. The canvas is less thick than it used to be, but it's still good quality canvas. These are great shoes. Thanks Zappos!

Let me start by saying this is my first pair of Jack Purcell's. I felt the need for some retro sneakers for women and couldn't find anything great, so went to the men's department. I was a little concerned after reading many of the other reviews that said the quality had suffered as a result of some cost cutting measures. I've got to say, I'm not disappointed. They are super cute and will be great with jeans and shorts. I'm sad I won't be able to experience the originals, they sound pretty amazing, but will purchase again, maybe in leather.

I like the Purcell -- the "dressy" alternative to its All-Star cousin. Color range is a little limited this year, but on the whole a strong show. Only downside is that the part of the shoe that bends as the wearer steps can't quite hold up -- a gap between the rubber and the canvas is the result. I have had three pairs each of the last three summers and this has happened each time. Still, really like these shoes!

Not quite the same fit or insole as the slightly more expensive Jack Purcell CP's. This may not be a deal breaker for everyone, but was for me.

This is my first pair of JPs and overall I'm impressed. Fits true to size, width, and a moderate arch support. The insole is thicker than most insoles that come with shoes - super cushiony. It's true the insole covers part of the two eyelets on the side but it's not a deal breaker. Quality-wise they look well made but we'll see after some time. When I get new shoes, the first thing I swap out are the insoles but I'll keep the ones that came with the shoes.

As canvas shoes go these were more comfortable than others that I have tried. I have owned JP's in the past and as other reviewers have noted some cost cutting measures have been instituted. Even so, they are better than other brands I have tried. As to arch support, I replaced the included full length insert with an aftermarket one and the shoes work for me. Cannot comment on durability as have only had the shoes for a number of weeks. So far I am happy with the purchase.

The sizing in these (dictated by Converse) is way off. I wear a women's 10, and for years when I wore the old version of Jack Purcells, I always wore a men's 8. Now it says a men's 8.5 is equal to a women's 10 - no true. These shoes were way too long on my foot. I plan to exchange for a men's 8 and see what happens. I was also disappointed in the changes Converse has made to this shoe - a lot more shoe lace holes added on the larger size, and the blue smile is no longer a layer under the toe cap - just at the same level.
