Drawing inspiration from 1940s Navy deck jackets, Converse has unveiled the latest iteration of its classic Jack Purcell.
The upper is constructed from a water repellant Bedford cord upper with an inner lining of canvas to ensure fans are better protected from elements during the upcoming fall season. In addition, the shoe also features all the benefits of the improved Jack Purcell signature which includes an Ortholite footbed as well as Nike Zoom Air Technology. Available in navy and sand dune, the Jungle Cloth pack officially hits retail on Thursday, September 24, and can be purchased via select Converse retailers, Nordstroms, and Converse.com. Retail is set at $110.
