Today I treated myself to some new shoesies! I'm so excited to have finally got round to buying them - I have been in desperate need of new converse for a while now, my others are too grubby for words. Because converse are probably the most popular trainer of all time (but too comfy to trade) I fancied something a little different. The Comme Des Garcons PLAY diffusion, which are part of the Jack Purcell range are perfect don't you think? After a little research earlier, I discovered that Jack Purcell was a famous Canadian badminton player in the 1920s and 30s - he actually designed these sneakers way back then (which converse then bought the rights to). I really love the thought that I am going to be enjoying the same shoes as people did nearly 80 years ago - although I bet none of them styled them with skinny jeans!
