Jack Purcell First In Class Low Top
SIMPLICITY, WITH A SMILE.Originally made for badminton, the Jack Purcell sneaker has become an icon for low-key expression. Dressed up or down, on or off the court – the signature “smile” adds just enough edge.
Jack Purcell Origins
Back in 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.
