Rockin' shoes - I love Converse. This is my first pair of Jack
Purcells after wearing Chuck Taylors for a very long time. I
did have to go up half a size, but Jack's have more padding
and a thicker insole, which is also removable for orthotics! I
love the way they look and feel. The Classic never dies -
White sneaker that has the right look. More refined than
Converse All Star (not quite a "bobo"), and not a typical
athletic shoe/"trainer", this sneak is a perfect summer shoe.
From shorts to jeans to a casual seersucker suit, these
sneakers rock!! Nice update on a classic - These are much more
comfortable and fit my feet way better than the Chuck Taylor
models. Great weekend shoes! They do run a bit large. I wear a
men's 8.5 normally, and the size 8 here fits great.
Great look; okay comfort - You can't do any better than the
style of this for a casual tennie, and it's obviously more
comfortable than sandals or whatever, but don't expect it to
feel like you're wearing air-soled running shoes or anything.
It's pretty flat, the inside of the tongue is kind of rough,
and the interior seams rub a little. They look best with those
low-cut socks that you can't see above the shoe line, but I
found them to be too uncomfortable with those socks -- the
canvas slides around a little (the shoes aren't too big --
just a little stiff) and with no lining, it's uncomfortable
rubbing against my foot.
