The Converse Jack Purcell sneaker may be the ultimate summer shoe but there is a lesser known member of Purcell's family that deserves a little more love. Here is a look at a model that you'll be kicking yourself for not knowing about until now.

The Converse Jack Purcell II is a sportier version of the timeless shoe and this time it gets upgraded with a nappa leather upper. The familiar toe cap on the original is all but gone from this model but the trademark "smile" across the toe is still there to let you know its lineage. The sneaker is given tonal suede foxing for an extra bit of contrast and more durability as well.

You can cop the Converse Jack Purcell II Nappa at KITH in New York for $85. If you are not near their brick and mortar location you can cop them via their online store.
