Converse Shoes Red/White Authentic Jack Purcel Womens/Mens Canvas Lo Sneakers
Jack Purcell was a champion, master and advocate for gaining advantage. By the time he helped design his signature court sneaker in 1935, he'd won five consecutive Canadian championships and been declared the World Badminton Champion. But under Jack's buttoned-up guise was a sly deviance that outsmarted in order to outplay, a legacy that lives on in this classic silhouette with its iconic smile on the toe.

Purcell designed a canvas and rubber badminton sneaker for the B.F. Goodrich Company of Canada in 1935. He designed the shoe to provide more protection and support for badminton courts. In the 1970s, Converse purchased the trademark rights to Jack Purcell sneakers - which it still produces and sells today. The shoe, which is similar in appearance to Converse's Chuck Taylor All-Stars, can be distinguished by the signature "smile" across the toe. Converse "Jack Purcells" are still popular - but more for their vintage fashion appeal than for athletic use.
