Converse x Pop Trading Company JP Pro Hi Shoes in Egret and Black. New for AW20, these rehashed Pro Hi Shoes are inspired by the legendary Canadian badminton champion Jack Purcell and the brand’s recent creative ode to high-end, tongue-in-cheek advertisements. Constructed from faux ‘dragonskin’ leather with a leather-lined PU sockliner for increased cushioning and step-by-step comfort, these high-top sneakers are designed to complement any street or skate-led wardrobe with ease. A crisp-white rubber outsole is paired with improved underfoot traction for boosted boardfeel and multi-directional grip, while the reinforced foxings and auxetic-shape overlays work together seamlessly to ensure unwanted scuffs and scrapes are managed effectively. The custom JP ‘Pop Trading Company’ smile accentuates the durable rubber shell-toe across the bumper, with the recessed 9-eyelet lacing system neatly tucking the protective tongue away against the natural arch of the foot for increased security and structural support. To complement the high-end appeal of these contemporary dragonskin sneakers, split-heel rubberised scabs feature debossed ‘Converse CONS’ and ‘Pop Trading’ branding for a playful and energetic sign off.
Pairing with the legendary Pop Trading Company to celebrate the ongoing legacy associated with Jack Purcell’s 1923 debuting profile, Converse once again demonstrates its game-changing appeal and its endless ode to innovative function. Adopted by Converse in the ‘70s and continuing its legacy still to this day, the JP profile is one that continues to impress regardless of setting or style.
