Jack Purcell

Jack Purcell was a Canadian World Champion badminton player who designed a Badminton shoe in 1935. In 1970, Converse bought the trademark rights for the shoe, which fit well into their established collection.

Eternally hip and understated, this classic court shoe now pushes that status in a progressive new direction. With a contemporary twist on the classic 1930’s silhouette highlighting the telltale Smile™ toe, Jack Purcell embarks on a 21st century renaissance injected with a refined and simple style.
