Jack Purcell

  • Sale
  • Regular price $65.00


Sizing: Unlike the Chuck Taylor the Jack Purcell runs true to size and we recommend you get what size you wear in most shoes.

Originally made for badminton, the Jack Purcell sneaker has become an icon for low-key expression since its introduction in 1935. Updated with an allover twill upper in laidback warm colours and a revamped construction, the Jack Purcell is crafted specifically for on and off-court appeal. With a seasonal red “smile” on the toe and OrthoLite® cushioning, this shoe is a gamechanger that completely flips the script. Been twill.

Back in 1935, legendary Canadian badminton champion Jack Purcell was undefeated worldwide and increasingly frustrated with the quality of badminton footwear. In designing his own athletic shoe, Purcell created a canvas and rubber sneaker with a signature "smile" across its toe, a now-iconic celebration of personal style and casual refinement.
