Premium suede upper? Yes. Classic shoe updated with the styling of a Swedish brand with an air for the surreal? Yes. Anything else? A bit of history on these iconic shoes? Let's do it. Essentially what happened is there was a Canadian badminton champion named, you guessed it, Jack Purcell. He grew increasingly frustrated with the quality of his footwear, and so he made it his goal to create something better, and that's why the Jack Purcells exist.
Now Converse and Polar Skate Co have taken that a step further, Polar combined their eye for quality aesthetics with Converse's updated tech to create a special collab shoe you'll love. The OrthoLite Sockliner means you can rock these longer and without torturing your feet, other people's eyes and your own feet are going to appreciate this move. Well done, sir.
Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. The sole consists of several layers of rubber, glued together then attached to the upper with rubber foxing tape. Vulcanized soles don’t provide as much foot protection or support as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.
