Converse has teamed up with Polar Skate Co. yet again to introduce its inaugural offering of the Jack Purcell Pro skate shoe. The timeless design of the Converse Jack Purcell shoe has been revamped and redesigned for skateboarding with input by Polar Skate Co. owner Pontus Alv, and is the first Converse Skateboarding model to feature its new Zoom Air technology.
With a new and improved Zoom Air dual-density insole constructed with a special heel insert for maximum comfort and impact protection, the shoes will feel supportive and comfortable all throughout their skate life. The toe cap has been made from a thinner rubber to allow for greater board feel, and the upper is made from high-grade suede material for added durability and grip. With a reformulated rubber compound, the new Converse CONS sole grips better and lasts longer. The all-new Jack Purcell Pro is the latest offering from the Converse CONS skate line, and we're excited to try it out for ourselves!
The first three Jack Purcell Pros are being released in collaboration with Polar, and come in three limited-run colorways: black suede, navy suede, and deep emerald suede.
If you're looking for something classic, here is the Jack Purcell Pro x Polar colorway in black suede.
Polar has long been associated with the color navy, here is their classic take on the Jack Purcell Pro x Polar colorway in navy suede.
Last but not least, the most exciting and elegant colorway is the Jack Purcell Pro x Polar colorway in deep emerald green. We're super stoked on how the shoes came out!
The shoes feature custom Polar artwork adorned on the liner of the insole as well Polar Happy/Sad logos on the heel of the shoe. This capsule is inspired by the 1980's skate scene, when style mattered just as much as the trick selection. The colors and silhouettes of the shoes reflect the Venice Beach skateboard scene of the eighties.
The apparel line is designed to go alongside the new shoes, and is a limited-edition run produced in small quantities by Converse CONS.
The clothing run features Converse X Polar Long Sleeve Tee Black and a Converse X Polar Pullover Hoodie in light blue. Both features the iconic Polar No-Comply woman logo and the signature Jack Purcell script logo. Two t-shirts are offered as well, with a Converse x Polar Crewneck Tee in black and a Converse x Polar Crewneck Tee in light blue. Lastly, they produced a rather cool Converse x Polar Short swim trunk with stitched Polar No-Comply logos embroidered throughout.
