Serendipity! Yep, I found this pair of Converse ― Jack Purcell edition vintage sneakers by accident! My sister and I were just walking around and it just happened that our favourite thrift shop had their new arrivals last Wednesday. I’ve got no plans spending on something not too important that day especially now that we’re on a tight budget week already (as expected after a few days or a week after pay day) but these shoes(!) were just sooo irresistible! I felt like it would be the end of the world if I didn’t buy it so I pulled out a few hundreds on my pocket without hesitation and went home with a mischievous, excited smile on my face. 😀
Did you know?
In the 1970s, Converse purchased the trademark rights to Jack Purcell sneakers – which it still produces and sells today. The shoe, which is similar in appearance to Converse’s Chuck Taylor All-Stars, can be distinguished by the signature “smile” across the toe. Converse “Jack Purcells” are still popular – but more for their vintage fashion appeal than for athletic use. Source: Wikipedia – Jack Purcell
