The Converse Jack Purcell For Fall/Winter 2011-2012 = Badminton Bad Mon Footwear!

"A mainstay in the CONVERSE line of product offerings, the Jack Purcell is given a radical makeover in the form of a premium patchwork model. The rubber toe cap and signature “smile” remain intact, while the typically canvas upper is replaced by various textile swatches of differing patterns and colors, all pieced together to form an appealing whole. Extremely limited in Europe, there are only 12 pairs available through BlackRainbow Paris. No word yet on a U.S. release ..."

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Simplicity rules! Sure the Converse Chuck Taylor model gets ALL of the shine - and with good reason - however, lest our magnificent manner of mode be ruled by myopia, we must also recognize the Jack Purcell line as well.

Named for and inspired by Canadian world champion badminton player Jack Purcell and introduced waaaaaaaaaay back in 1935 for the B.F. Goodrich company (!) these classic kicks with the rubber "smile" toe cap deserve some serious attention. Enter the Jack Purcell Patchwork's for Fall/Winter 2011-2012.

These uber limited (NOTE: With a production run of only a dozen!) bad boys get a premium tartan tune-up without sacrificing 1 iota of their integrity. What's not to like? Answer: Nothing. Follow the BlackRainbow!
