Converse started off on the court and then got adopted on the street. In the year 1908 based out of Boston, Converse began as a rubber company to make sneakers and boots, and then found them selves on the basketball court and reinvented the sport. The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker became the court sneaker; it stood for the game. From there Converse moved into other sports with new sneaker silhouettes like the Pro Leather, the Star Player, and the Weapon. The Star Chevron showed up and became another Converse symbol. And just when we seemed to be destined for athletes only Ã¢â‚¬â€œ something happened.
Converse sneakers showed up in rock clubs, on the streets, on rappers, on icons, on rebels and originals. It became the sneaker of choice for individuals. From All Star to Jack Purcell to CONS, Converse doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t confine itself to one style or definition.

The Converse Jack Purcell’s canvas upper is treated as such and given a Shibori treatment in the latest version to be showcased. Shibori, defined as “twisting” in Japanese, involves dipping cloths into dye and twisting it to achieve a unique aesthetic. That is the case for this Jack Purcell, which features blue stripes set atop a tan canvas base. Keeping the color scheme in line, blue trim lines the ankle collar, with a white midsole employed to complete the casual look. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for updates on when this Shibori Jack Purcell is set to land at retailers.
