Denham the Jeanmaker in collaboration with Converse designed the 1st Edition Converse Jack Purcell X Denham sneaker – bringing together two great street fashion brands.
Sharing the same passion for original designs and quality, Denham and Converse pooled their creative forces to introduce a new sneaker that embodies the philosophy of both companies – establishment through constant innovation.
The Converse Jack Purcell X Denham sneaker’s classic natural canvas upper is made for wearing with denims, and as always, there is lots of detail – not least the scissors logo reconfigured to form a ‘smile’ on the heel. Available in colours white or black and in limited quantities.
