Apartment Product Highlight – Jack Purcell x Hancock Mid’s

Introducing the Converse First-String collaboration with British luxury brand, Hancock. The flawless production features Hancock’s patented rubber bonding process whereby a rubber solution is bonded between two layers of fabric creating a waterproof barrier. We were particularly impressed with the attention to detail seen in the engraved eyelets, embroidered heel stay and siphonia elastic print inner.
