The Converse Jack Purcell is getting quite the material makeover in the upcoming 'Moto Jacket' collection.

The two-sneaker set features versions of this smiling shoe at the Mid height, with both of them wearing a premium leather upper. To further the motorcycle jacket theme, there's a wavy pattern wrapping the heel of the two models that gives them a raised, ribbed bumper. The monochromatic releases in question are right around the corner - Converse retailers across the globe will have them in store come October 17th for $100. Tell us which of these two Jack Purcell pairs you'll be chasing after and let us know if you're feeling the moto jacket/Balmain vibe.
