Converse Jack Purcell Racearound Hi


Coming this July Converse will bring back the Jack Purcell Racearound. Unlike the lineup of low to Jack Purcell Racearound’s released in 2007 and 2008 the new releases will feature a high cut design.

The Jack Purcell Racearound is a style which was originally designed by Converse in the early 1970s. The design inspiration for the silhouette was taken from the cars of the era and was developed to be a racing/driving sneaker. The Racearound models being released in July include tumbled leather uppers with suede and patent leather detailing. The sneakers will be available in oxford and high-top versions and will come in black/grey/red, black/red and white/black/red. Unfortunately at this time all we have is a shot of one of the colorups.

Retail will range between $95 – $100 and the sneakers will be available specialty retailers and online at the Converse website in July 2009.
