Converse has announced its fourth collaboration with luxury lifestyle label Hancock Vulcanised Articles, featuring the Jack Purcell Signature Hi sneaker. This is first release that has integrated Hancock materials into the Jack Purcell silhouette.
The new sneaker is available in three colorways — Autumn, Taupe and Black. The black style also features Hancock’s Siphonia Elastica rubber-plant print detailed on the canvas upper.
The Jack Purcell x Hancock collab includes a vulcanized, water-repellent canvas upper and cured-rubber heel stay in Hancock’s signature Mastic Grey. Like all Jack Purcell Signature products, an OrthoLite footbed with Nike Zoom Air technology is included.
The third collaboration between Converse and Hancock featured the Rally silhouette in Juice, Teal and Orange colorways — along with the vulcanized, water-repellent canvas.
Hancock was founded in 2012, offering contemporary rubber-bonded outerwear using techniques that date back to the 19th century. All pieces are handmade at the brand’s Scotland factory.
The Converse Jack Purcell Signature Hi x Hancock sneaker collection will be available in limited quantities on Jan. 15 at Converse stores, online and at select retailers across the U.S., Europe and Asia. The sneakers will retail for $200.
