These classic Converse Jack Purcells are Strategist editor Alexis Swerdloff’s go-to summer sneaks. As she noted last week, “For a canvas sneaker that doesn’t look like much, they have a surprising amount of support (loads more than, say, a pair of Vans or All-Stars), and they lose their bright-whiteness pretty quickly.” They don’t look clunky with a dress or a pair of high-waisted cropped pants, and they feel relevant without being overly trendy. They aren’t usually on sale, so we thought we’d note that they are currently 25 percent off.
