Winter is coming like it does every year, but not any time soon. Instead, we’re going to get a good amount of rain as soon as the clear skies of summer are over. And if you’d like to hit the town in casual sneakers even through the wet days of fall, you’ll need a sufficiently weatherized pair to keep your feet dry. That’s exactly what Converse brings in the Jack Purcell Signature Shield Canvas.
A part of the outfit’s Counter Climate collection, these shoes are designed to keep water out, all while letting you make your way around town without worries of succumbing to slippery roads and sidewalks. That way, you can dress relaxed with a pair of canvas sneakers regardless of whether the skies stay clear or take a turn for the cloudy.
The Converse Jack Purcell Signature Shield Canvas pairs the outfit’s weather-resistant upper (Shield Canvas) with a herringbone-patterned rubber outsole for superb traction even in wet conditions. It comes with extended sidewalls to further reinforce the weather protection, along with Ortholite sockliner, Converse Comfort Wedge, and ultra-responsive Nike Zoom Air cushioning for superior all-day comfort.
As part of the Signature collection, by the way, the silhouette is a more contemporary interpretation of the old Converse classic, albeit with the signature smile across the toe still intact. It comes in just two colorways: natural and ink blue.
Available now, the Converse Jack Purcell Signature Shield Canvas is priced at $115.
