A Closer Look at the Converse First String Jack Purcell “Boro”

Taking inspiration, and its name, from the Japanese age-old art and technique of recycling cloth to create an entirely new material, we’ve got a closer look at the Converse First String Jack Purcell “Boro” shoe. Built of an indigo patchwork composition for the upper, the pattern is a tribute to the days when reworking and recycling material scraps was an economically imposed necessity, with exposed stitching finishes and mismatched fabric patterns further emphasizing the origins of the design technique. Fitted on Converse’s classic Jack Purcell silhouette, the “Boro” shoe is priced at $1,099 HKD (approximately $140 USD) and is set to be available at select retailers, including Hong Kong’s I.T., E.X.IT. and Juice on September 6.
