To introduce the Jack Purcell Pro, Converse has partnered with Polar Skate Co on a collaboration that speaks to the clean style of the original Jack Purcell. The team at Polar chose 3 classic premium suede colorways, white midsole’s, and the traditional Jack Purcell light Blue was used on the outsole. The shoes are co-Branded and feature the Happy Sad faces on the heel tabs, The Polar Fill Logo debossed on the heel stripe, and the no comply lady on the inside of the tongue.
To accompany the footwear Polar designed an apparel collection inspired by the 80’s era of skateboarding in Venice Beach CA. Tee’s, Hoodies, Shorts and a hat make up the collection of apparel that complement the footwear offering. All items are co-branded and celebrate the legacy of the Jack Purcell.

BACK IN THE 1935, LEGENDARY CANADIAN BADMINTON CHAMPION JACK PURCELL WAS UNDEFEATED WORLDWIDE—AND INCREASINGLY FRUSTRATED WITH THE QUALITY OF BADMINTON FOOTWEAR. IN DESIGNING HIS OWN ATHLETIC SHOE, PURCELL CREATED A CANVAS AND RUBBER SNEAKER WITH A SIGNATURE "SMILE" ACROSS ITS TOE—A NOW-ICONIC CELEBRATION OF PERSONAL STYLE AND CASUAL REFINEMENT.
