The collection consists of the Ox which boasts a unique white debossed leather upper, and the Mid-Top which features a premium stingray leather upper. Both iterations are made meticulously, despite their minimal makeup. “Build & Destroy” are debossed onto the rubber toecaps with iconic camo screen-print graphics (synonymous to Ben Dury’s signature work) take on the cotton base. Metallic gold logos take on the sockliners and heel stay, while an icy blue outsole rounds out sneakers with a bold finish.mowax-x-converse-jack-purcell-collection-3

Both the Converse All Star Hi and Jack Purcell sneaker silouette is given makeover with all-over camo prints, including an anti-bacterial insole. While the All Star Hi sneaker features the abstract camo print with a mainly black vulcanized sole and black Converse label, the Jack Purcell Hunter-Camo sneaker has a white vulcanized sole with black midsole, and the white sole bleeding over on the toe cap.


Mastermind x Converse Jack Purcell Hi

Metal studs, black leather, skull motifs… all dead giveaway of this CONVERSE Jack Purcell Hi as a collaboration with mastermind JAPAN. Fresh off from its project with another Harajuku start-up, A Bathing Ape,  the mastermind JAPAN x CONVERSE Jack Purcell Hi is in many ways a throwback to height of the so-called Harajuku culture a few years back, where black and white were the only color available anywhere. Accentuated with black leather ankle collar and studs, a zipper runs nearly vertical on the shoe’s side for easy entry. All black cotton canvas highlighted by contrast white stitching and the ubiquitous skull & cross bones embroidery on the heel panel.  A cryptic message of “mastermind” and “love & peace” adorned the toe cap edge.  As with all mastermind JAPAN collaborations, this CONVERSE Jack Purcell Hi will be available at a select few CONVERSE retail locations this coming December 1st.

G1950 x Converse Jack Purcell

Japanese label G1950 has teamed up with Converse on a new version of the Jack Purcell. Maintaining the standard silhouette, the shoe features multiple colored accents on the eyelets, sole, and even a little ‘smile’ on the toe cape. For those that love these sneakers, we’re sorry to say they aren’t slated for release until January 2012, so get those calendars marked.
