I do like clothes with a bit of heritage. In fact, the story of these Jack Purcell Adirondack trainers actually begins in the UK.
In the 1950s, English designer Lucienne Day led the way in using abstract designs in textile fabrics. And these shoes are apparently based on a 1954 pattern called “Trio".
So what you’re getting here is the lightweight, classic style of the Jack Purcell shoe, mixed with an original print from a famous designer, with a printed canvas upper and rubber outsole with the signature Jack Purcell smile on toe bumper.
All that history – and you can pick them up for around £50.
