The Converse Jack Purcell Signature franchise continues to expand with the latest addition of the sneaker in Nubuck leather that has been brushed for softness. The leather material in the Converse Jack Purcell Signature, while soft, is also sturdy and durable providing a comfort for the foot of a versatile man.

Inspired by original Army flight jackets, this footwear essential features all the craftsmanship of the original Converse Jack Purcell Signature, first launched in Spring 2015, including an Ortholite* footbed, Nike Zoom Air Technology, and classic herringbone tread pattern on the outsole. The collection is offered in Inked, Luggage Tan, Dolphin and White.

The new Converse Jack Purcell Signature in Nubuck Leather will be available starting Thursday, January 28 at Converse retail stores and for a suggested price of $130 USD.
