Converse Jack Purcell 75th Anniversary

2010 marks 75 years since the Jack Purcell tennis sneaker was introduced.

To celebrate,Converse has released a slew of new colorways of the shoe already. But there are many more that have become available recently. One version in particular that comes to mind is the Jack Purcell Johnny, which is the original version of the iconic tennis sneaker. It is available in high, and low top forms, and features a tan canvas upper. In addition to that, there are many other versions in a variety of colorways to choose from. Also of note are the metallic brogue (wingtip) versions. The Jack Purcell Johnny is $80 for the low top, and $85 for the high. The metallic brogue colorways of the shoe are both $85. The other more traditional canvas Jack Purcells are a bit more wallet-friendly at $60. See them now at Converse.com and other retailers.
