Apologies for the lack of posts lately on Buffalo Dandy. Like many of you, I was insanely busy during the holiday season and decided to take a little time off from blogging. Also, I haven’t seen too much to get excited about lately and didn’t really have a ton to write about. That is until these new Converse Jack Purcell Quickstrikes dropped and I was all like “just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in…”. Our love for Jack Purcell’s is well documented (seen here, here, here, here, here aaaand here) and while our adoration for the classic low-top is unwavering, there is something to be said about this bold yet simple update.
Boasting 18 updated features, mostly likely similar to what Converse introduced with their Chuck Taylor All Star II release, I’m really digging the use of brass grommets, Nike Zoom Air Tech and everything else about this shoe which basically looks like the classic Purcell only higher. My only gripe is the Jack Purcell logo on the tongue remains hidden with tonal embroidery (le sigh) but it at least it’s on there.
We suggest picking yourself up a pair now and stashing them away until Spring because it looks like they’re selling out pretty fast. You can find them for purchase online at Tannergoods.com.
