The Converse Jack Purcell first came into existence as a B.F. Goodrich shoe (in Canada, no less) in 1935, before the design was purchased by Converse in 1970. With its canvas upper, steel eyelets and signature "smile" on the rubber toecap, it has remained virtually unchanged since Jack Purcell himself designed it. This collaboration with Japanese brand Comme des Garcons leaves the classic design untouched, just adding the Play signature heart to the upper. The off-white version with the red heart is the pair to find.
