Jack Purcell Origins
Back in 1935, legendary Canadian badminton champion Jack Purcell was undefeated worldwide and increasingly frustrated with the quality of badminton footwear. In designing his own athletic shoe, Purcell created a canvas and rubber sneaker with a signature "smile" across its toe, a now-iconic celebration of personal style and casual refinement.
