Crazy Converse I Saw in Japan and Where to Buy Them Online


Click here for Zappos.com!

 

The Jack Purcell Converse are an all-time favorite sneaker, both classic and modern versions. They are understated, stylish and ultimately timeless. Recent years saw some new Jack Purcell releases including a twill/leather combination and nubuck leather edition in earth-tones. Did I mention the cork footbed which is moisture-wicking, shock absorbing and with continued wear will conform to the shape of your foot to provide excellent arch and forefoot support?

Now, imagine the beloved Jack Purcells in corduroy, leather, suede, nubuck, quilting, wool, vinyl, jacquard, velvet, velcro, denim, flannel, all-black, platform, mid-top, shin-hi, saddle shoe, bowling shoe, golf-shoe, slip-ons, rain boots and so on. That just touches the surface of some of the crazy Converse I saw in Japan recently.

Many styles, I have learned, are Japan-only releases or limited editions.  Even better though, here is where you can buy them online from almost anywhere in the world. Many come with free shipping. Please note that as styles sell out, I will try to update this with unusual styles you can still get your hands on. Alternatively, you can have a peek at my roundup of some super rare Converse on eBay.

These are the best Jack Purcells in the world: (click any shoe for details)
