Hudson’s Bay Company x Converse 2013 Jack Purcell Collection
Coming together for a refreshing take on the ever-popular collaboration line, American icon Converse teams with North America’s longest continually operated company Hudson’s Bay for a two-part collection of Jack Purcell sneakers. Utilizing the unisex Jack Purcell Duck Boot and the women’s Helen silhouette, each model incorporates the Canadian clothier’s signature wool point blanket stripes for an ultra blend of heritages. The iconic wool used on these sneakers has been dyed before it was spun together, then air and sun dried to brighten its colors. While the boot rendition features a leather collar and heel stay, each pair is further built with threaded stitching, antique brass eyelets, as well as the Jack Purcell and Hudson’s Bay logos on each foot bed. The Hudson’s Bay Company x Converse Jack Purcell collection will be available for purchase exclusively at Hudson’s Bay stores starting September 1 for a suggested retail price of $120-140 USD.
