From the age of 11 until I was about 20 the only footwear I'd ever have on would be Converse Chuck Taylor's. I still own at least 10 different pairs of them as I believe they will never go out of fashion. However, I wear them a lot less these days party because they are a bit dressed down for most places I have to go. And so I was thrilled to see this new collection Converse Jack Purcell is launching this season in collaboration with Hancock Vulcanised Articles. The shoes combine rubber-bonded, waterproof materials with Purcell's classic mid-top sneaker.
They are the perfect balance between a casual and timeless spring shoe and a luxury everyday essential I can wear to the office with my jeans or chinos. They are available as a limited edition in indigo, mastic grey and summer yellow. You can get your hands on them for the very reasonable price of £170 a pair from March 14th. Click here from tomorrow to buy your pair.
