Jack Purcell - Unofficial Jack Graft Edition!

In all of my years as your Unofficial Jack, I have never receive anything from Converse to influence my straight ahead assessment of what is going on in the Jack Purcell world... until now.  I have to come clean:  I got some sneakers sent my way!

Three pairs of sneakers were sent my way.  The first was the Jack Purcell Hancock Vulcanized Articles with the distinctive logo on the back.  I'm always a big fan of the high-top sneaks because of my cruddy feet and these fit well.  The line of the sneaker is spot on.  Sometimes, the high top looks awkward but the V-A works nice. The customized pouch is always a good touch.  Since it does not rain in Southern California, the vulcanized part, the waterproof part, may be less applicable.  But always appreciative...

The gray smiley face toe works for me, I tend to trend towards tones anyway.  One of the nice extras (not pictured) is an alternate color scheme for the laces.  Provided as an extra is a set of laces that match the smiley face.  Nice...

The V-A logo stitched into the back of the sneaker is also a cool touch.

The second set of sneakers receive was the Jack Purcll Mid Admiral.  I cannot express how much of a fan I am of the leather line of Jack Purcell's.  With my crappy feet, leather support is much appreciated.  I have already worn these to a party.

The cork insole is a nice touch and helps with the comfort.
