Today, Converse announced the launch of the Mackintosh for Converse Jack Purcell Johnny shoe and Mac jacket. The DNA of the classic sneaker has been nicely fused with materials and aesthetics of the Mackintosh brand.
There are three versions of the Jack Purcell Johnny shoe, each with classic Jack detailing with white rubber soles and a signature navy toe-smile. The shoes include a version in navy blue with a lime interior, a version in putty with a chocolate interior, and a version with dark olive and a deep plum interior. Clean, monochromatic laces match the shoes’ upper but each also comes with a spare lace in the contrast color.
Just in time for April showers, the collection will launch April 22, 2011 in the UK and on May 1 in the US at Union in Los Angeles.
Detailed images of the sneakers follow after the jump.
