10 Reasons why I love the redesigned Jack Purcell Signature sneaker

Being a sneaker fan and addict, your standards and taste level in buying sneakers is definitely high. You're always in a search for the perfect and most unique sneaker out there in the market, whether it be high cut, low cut, classic and avant-garde - you're good as long as it'll capture people's attention as you walk down the street. If you'll ask me what brand of sneaker I love wearing because of its versatility and timeless appeal of it, the first thing that probably would pop into my mind is Converse especially the Jack Purcell line. The shoe (Jack Purcell) has remained a staple in our wardrobes for as far back as we can remember. the classic minimalist design and durability of every pair are one of the reasons why people "including me" adore the Jack Purcell line. That's why like many Converse fans out there, we were a bit worried when the brand said they would be redesigning the classic Jack Purcell silhouette. But again, Converse proved us all wrong. 

CONVERSE Inc. debuts the all new Converse Jack Purcell Signature sneaker, a modern evolution of the iconic silhouette with 18 new features and benefits. Contemporary and innovative product features, such as two-ply duck canvas and a streamlined toe cap, add comfort as a key benefit and will revolutionize the way consumers feel and look in Converse Jack Purcell. As the most premium expression of Jack Purcell to date, the Converse Jack Purcell Signature is meticulously crafted, staying true to the core attributes of the iconic sneaker while delivering a more versatile essential sneaker. 

Sounds awesome right? that's why I'm sharing to you guys the 10 reasons why I love the redesigned Jack Purcell Signature sneaker.

1. Two ply - duck canvass.
The shoe's upper is now constructed with from a two-ply duck canvas for strength and durability. As a frugal person, I want my sneakers to last longer even though I'm using it everyday.

2.  Converse did a wonderful job on reinventing the classic Jack Purcell sneakers. Most of the design elements that we love so much from the original design have remained in tact. There are however some nice modern tweaks and alteration to the latest designs.

3. It still has that simple and effortless cool vibe to it. The 2015 sneakers doesn't lose that style + comfort vibe that we Jack Purcell fans are used to. Still looks cool when paired with wardrobe essentials.

4. The redesigned sneaker has received a huge makeover, without compromising the silhouette and timeless styling we've grown to love over the last 80 years.

5. An upgraded toe cap and two-piece molded foxing create for a subtle contemporary look but some unexpected tech under the hood took the prize.

6. For the first time ever, Nike Zoom Air Technology will be implemented into the footbed for improved comfort and breathability.

7.  More polished and edgier look.

8. The structure of this sneaker is just impressive. Premium detailing such as durable polished aluminum eyelets and wider heel stay displays craftsmanship in the construction. Winged tongue and duck canvas eyerow create a seamless inner forefoot, adding durability in a high friction place. 

9. Signature two-piece Jack Purcell smile construction in Converse blue,signature embroidered tongueoutsole logoheel logo, and inner signature label provide the most classic expression of the iconic logo treatments. 

10. And lastly, I'm so excited to pair it with different kind of styles and looks yet still complements or mixed well with my outfits. That's the beauty of these Jack Purcells, it balances/toned down your outfit especially if you're wearing the most outrageous/unconventional outfit ever. 

The new Spring 2015 Converse Jack Purcell Signature sneaker will be available for purchase starting in February 2015 for a suggested retail price of PHP 4,790.00, at Converse retail stores nationwide, in White, Black and Mason :)
