 Wow wow wow. Wow wow wowwwwwwww….
I adore it.

 ''Quick history lesson here for you shoe buffs; Jack Purcell was a Canadian World Champion Badminton player back in the late 1920s, winning 5 Championships in a row and remaining unbeaten until his retirement. Just like nowadays, back then when you were the camp, the marketing offers piled up. In collaboration with the BF Goodrich Tire company, Purcell pioneered a rubber-soled canvas shoe for the courts. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that Converse bought the trademark rights to the sneaker they still produce to this day. Slightly different, perhaps even more classy than a pair of All-Stars, they evoke a vintage/retro look and usually become a staple in anyone’s wardrobe.''
