Converse have taken their line of madly popular All Star and Jack Purcell sneakers to new markets over the last year, pulling in premium materials and restricting the colour palette to create hype-worthy, luxury renditions of the immortal silhouettes. This is the latest, the Jack Purcell Cross Stitch. Soft tumbled leather dominates the upper, with a waxed cotton cross stitch around the lace area giving the model a nice eye-grabbing accent and its name. The Jack Purcell smile is served in gum on rubber, while square waxed cotton laces and brass accents add even more Savoir-Faire. The Converse Jack Purcell Cross Stitch is available in Black, Twilight and Bordo from www.converse.com.au, the Converse Melbourne Central Flagship store and other selected stores now.
