Converse x Pop Trading Company JP Pro Ox Shoes in Purple and Black. Inspired by the legendary badminton champion Jack Purcell’s iconic signature style and the brand’s latest perfume-orientated monochrome advert directed by Patrick Louwerse, these collaborative Pro Ox sneakers strike the perfect balance between everyday function and revolutionary street-led desire. Styled with uppers crafted from bright-purple faux ‘dragonskin’ leather and with a leather-lined PU sockliner for boosted step-by-step comfort, these rehashed and iconic Converse sneakers are designed to deliver a pop of contemporary colour to any pre-existing wardrobe. A crisp-white rubberised outsole features tractionised underfoot trims and auxetic mid and fore-foot overlays for increased abrasion resistance to keep any unexpected scuffs and bumps at bay, whilst the reinforced toe-shell features the custom JP ‘Pop Trading Company’ smile across the front for a quirky and instantly recognisable sign-off. A recessed 7-eyelet lacing system secures the colour-matched flat cotton laces across the tongue for a greater sense of security, while the split-heel rubber tab ‘Converse Cons’ and Pop Trading’ debossed branding playfully commemorates this two-part collab in true luxe fashion.
Adopted by Converse in the 1970’s after its debut in 1923, the self-named JP profile is one that has grown to become a skate-specific favourite over the years. With its clean-lined aesthetic and its endless ode to endurance, the CONS re-worked JP sneaker is set to continue its legacy well into the changing seasons with its latest collaborative revival alongside Pop Trading Company.
