Here’s a pair of water repellent sneakers that are weather appropriate for our unpredictable volatile Monsoon season. This is the second collaboration between Converse’s Jack Purcell and the luxury handmade raincoat company Hancock Vulcanized Articles (HVA). The union between the casual sportswear and the bespoke high-end quality of Hancock results in shoes that are supremely chic but above all, classic. The mid-silhouette is a form that we are all very familiar with but these sneakers might very well be elevated to timeless status with Hancock’s distinctive Siphonia Elastica graphic rubber plant print in the sock liner and the iconic Jack Purcell’s smile at the toes. As details are all that matter here, Hancock’s stylish insignia is bore on the heel tabs of the shoes while the ‘smile’ is subtly accented in faint grey. Available in black and military green, its basic colours are made to complement any outfit that you can throw together.
On deciding a colour, are you as hard-pressed as we are?
The Converse Jack Purcell x Hancock is available for €149.90 via Allike Store.
