American born and based label, Converse have teamed up with Amsterdam based denim designers Denham for this new iteration of the classic Jack Purcell Jack Ox. The Dutch label added a twist with the classic panelled sole construction and that iconic smile. The 1st String Jack Ox canvas sneaker features a contrasting toe cap, alongside a single detail eyelet, and is finished off with Denham’s scissor emblem de-constructed and embroidered at the heel. Moreover, the Jack Purcell is also made of premium white or black leather, and is now available at selected stores across South East Asia, including LeftFoot Cineleisure and Converse Indonesia.

The Converse Jack Purcell and Denham sneaker’s classic canvas upper is the perfect textural complement to thoughtfully crafted denim. The clean white midsole is offset by a solid black toe, while the outsole is enhanced by an embossed leather Jack Purcell outsole logo, inspired by the leather patches sewn on the waistband of a great pair of jeans. A contrasting top eyelet brings to mind a pocket rivet; the kind of detailing that draws in a more discerning eye. Denham’s own nod to the famed Jack Purcell toecap is seen on the heel, where their illustrative scissor logo is reconfigured to make the cutting shears “smile”.
