Lace up a pair of Converse Jack Purcell Leather Oxford sneakers and hit the streets in style. This Converse sneaker is named after badminton all-star Jack Purcell. I know what youâ€™re thinkingâ€¦ badminton, really? Jack Purcell was an amazing athlete and quite the snappy dresser which is why this ultra-cool sneaker is named after him. Similar to its brother the Chuck Taylor All-Star, the Jack Purcell oxford is a low-top sneaker constructed of a soft leather upper which is both lightweight and durable. A resilient and supportive vulcanized rubber outsole provides traction without bulky treads. A rubber toe cap with a pop of color, the Jack Purcellâ€™s distinctive accent, gives the shoe structure. Lace-up fit with round steel eyelets are one of the classic attributes to this sneaker that makes them part of the Converse family.
