Iconic American brand Converse partners with the Italian lifestyle peddlers over at Slam Jam on a special edition Jack Purcell sneaker, which the duo has dubbed "Summer Journey."  As we noted in our preview, the look inspired by a trip out on the open waters, Slam Jam went with a water-repellent waffle canvas upper coated in a navy colorways with a summer-ready white rubber midsole and toe cap, presenting the perfect complement to almost any outfit you select. Even the signature Jack Purcell toe-smile is in place in red, matching the canvas lining and single-snap closure for a bold pop of color while "Summer Journey" is printed down the sneaker tongues, coincidentally matching the Slam Jam's initials and capturing the feeling that inspired the collab. This Slam Jam x Converse Jack Purcell sneaker will be releasing in limited quantities beginning May 31 via these retailers as well as Amsterdam's Patta, Berlin's Firmament, and Shanghai's Juice.

Release Date: May 31, 2013 (Friday)
