Classy shoes - I really like Jack Purcell’s, the look and comfort. However I noticed that after several times of wearing, the outsole near the arch of the foot starts to tear apart. My friend also had encountered this kind of problem. I'm planning to buy the leather version of this one, but after having this problem, I’m thinking of getting the Converse One Stars because of durability issues.

Looks great but arch support could be better - Love the shoe, looks great. I put a Superfeet insert into the shoe to improve the arch support.

They are a little small and take a few miles and some blisters to break in. But they look great and go with everything.

Great classic clean look and a good summer shoe for walking about the city. Nice clean sharp look creating the feel of a more formal sneaker, but remaining beautifully casual. Works well with various shades of khaki colored pants. In a word, this shoe is smart.

Brands I'd also recommend: If you prefer, check out the worn look of the Purcells.

Jack Purcell review - Nice shoe, but I feel it could have a little bit heavier canvas on the upper. If you are hard on shoes and wear one pair a lot, the upper will wear fairly quick. Really love the look of this shoe though.

A classic - Love my Jack Purcell's. They're slightly narrow for me, but I'm willing to break them in. They've got great classic style and look even better as they age. When they get too dirty, I put them in the wash and they've held up just fine.

Great white shoe - Very comfortable, although I gave it 4 starts "overall" b/c I had to order a size down. No big deal. Love the shoe now that it fits. Clean, classic look.

Cute shoes - I've worn these shoes a few times without socks, and the inside is a little rough, but I think I'll get used to it. They have very cushy soles and should be good for lots of walking or standing. I ended up with a 7.5 which seemed a lot smaller than the 8 I tired first.

It's not Chuck T's but..... Great shoe even though the look is just a shade different than what I thought it would be. That’s my fault. Other than that great comfort and it's a better quality than the Chucks.

Cool shoes - I teach 9th grade and my kids think I am the coolest teacher ever because I bought the shoe they are wearing. I originally bought them because I thought they were cute. Who knew it would make me COOL. They are comfortable and stylish.

Good shoe - I got the shoe the next day, and I really wanted the green, but they discontinued it! Anyway, the shoe looks great, but the back digs slightly into the back of my heel, but that's probably because I haven't broken them in yet. Overall, a cool shoe.

Love the look... This is my 4th pair of Purcell’s ~ my first non-white... The important thing to remember is that this shoe is not made for comfort. The 3rd pair I had to give away because I bought them in my regular size and my feet were thoroughly abused; lots of rubbing and blisters ~ not worth the pain. I went a half size up with this pair and so far, it's much better. I wear them purely for the look...

Great classic sneaker - I wore Jack Purcells back in 1968 in Jr. High School. Even though the look has changed slightly, they are basically the same Jack Purcells from yesteryears.

Great old classic - I wore these shoes when I was a kid, they still fit great. I have a wide foot and for a regular tennis shoe they fit great.

Great shoe - Definitely a great shoe. My only complaint is that I felt like the shoe was pretty narrow, so my toes felt a bit cramped (and my feet are really narrow!). Also, not sure I'd want to walk around in these all day... The most impressive thing to me, though, is Zappos! I ordered these shoes at around 9pm on a Thursday and received them Friday by mid afternoon with the standard shipping option!

Converse Jack Purcell. Stellar looking shoes. A little bit flat on the bottom, but I threw some insoles in these babies and it is like walking on clouds. Also, I look like a god.

Good ol' favorite - Classic Con. A bit snug for those of us with wider feet - it’s built for slim teenage feet - but a slim sock helps. Improved cushion keeps them a bit more wearable than in years past for us 46 year olds. Check out the one with wider ties and larger eyelets! Cute.

Not so comfy - I purchased these for a plane trip to Seattle and lots of walking. After a couple of days, I had blisters and raw places on my toes and upper foot. The tongue of the shoe has some bumps with sewing that rub against the foot. They also didn't provide much arch support and my back was killing me. The look is great but the comfort is not. I will try them for short periods from now on.

Get 1/2 to full size up - I've worn Chucks for decades and decided to try the JPs for a change. I wear an 8.5 in Chucks but the same size in the JPs is too tight and narrow. My little toe feels pinched in them. Otherwise they seem better-made than Chucks and there's more padding in the soles. I might try em again in a larger size.

Much improved! All I wear are converse tennis shoes, but had never tried the Jack Purcell's. What a great shoe! Much better arch support and comfort than the standard converse.

Great looking sneaker, is what it is - Got a pair of Jacks in the same size that I normally get my all-stars. These sneakers run at least a half size smaller than all-stars and are more narrow, so you'll have to compensate the size when you order. Great looking. Nice laces too.

Jack Purcell Converse low-quarter classics - It's too early for me to determine at this time [received item as Christmas gift] if the off-shoring of this product takes it completely into the tank or if product improvement activities have done some quality adjustments. My sincere wish is that the quality improved over my last pair of Purcell's. The Jack Purcell signature label at the back of this show came off [half way of course, not completely] after about two months of wear. Very shoddy workmanship throughout on this shoe. However, with this newly received pair it's so far so good. The overall quality feel and look seems much improved. The familiar lived in feel is back. I have enjoyed Converse products for many many years [I'm 75 years old] and hated to see such a fine product off-shored -- but that is the way of the world today and I do love the Converse quality. I might just add that the Zappos website is a joy to surf and to use. Keep up the good work already on your website! Thanks for the opportunity to comment.

Brands I'd also recommend: It's just a casual low-quarter sneaker -- no fashion statement here.

Cute but uncomfortable - Very cute retro stylish shoe. Zero arch support and the back of the shoe bites into my heel. I hope that they break in and become more comfortable.
