The Converse Jack Purcell collection celebrates its 75th anniversary in Fall 2010. Referencing the 1930s with updated silhouettes and early 20th century techniques, Converse re-launches the original Johnny shoe (pictured above), as well as offering the standard JP in brogued and garment dyed options. All of the shoes in this collection also include premium linings and comfort foot beds, alongside the iconic smiling toe.
In related news, there will be a Jack Purcell Pop-up Shop at the NYC Saks Fifth Avenue location from September 2 – September 19, 2010. Copies of the “Smile If You’re a Player” photo book shot by Todd Selby will be provided as a gift with purchase. On September 10, 2010 Converse will be hosting a special Jack Purcell photo booth during Fashion Night Out from 7PM – 10PM.
