Jack Purcells are true to fit for me, I wear 9.5 in JP and most brands. For Converse though, like Chucks, I'm apparently a 9. It's really weird. Also because 10 years ago I fit Converse size 10's...

I'm semi thinking about getting some JP black leathers. I see dudes wearing them all the time, they look slick. I have black canvas, but there's something about the leather...

I actually think these are pretty cool, except the zipper is a deal breaker for me. I could go out in public in these if that zipper crap wasn't there. Otherwise I cannot. =(

My monthly Converse thread post:

From about 2009-2011 I got obsessed with kicks. For some reason I went crazy and kept buying shoes. Largely Vans, Chucks, a couple PF Flyers, Jack Purcells... Half of them I've still only worn a handful of times. Near the end of that obsession I started really liking these Converse Skidgrips. They are basically like slip-on Vans, but they are Converse. The construction is slightly thinner than Vans, and these are easier to slip on and less stiff before breaking in. I usually have to pull on my Vans (even worn in ones) where these skidgrips I can slip into without really needing to adjust the feel by hand.

Anyway, I love these skidgrips. I have a couple pairs and every now and then I scan Google for anyone that might be selling them. There are a few designs out there that I like but places don't always have them in 9.5. I also just discovered Converse Deck Stars, which are basically identical to skidgrips except they have a removable insert and the bottoms have the Chuck Taylor design underneath instead of the skidgrip design. Neither of these are even on the Converse site. Anyone know why? I really wish they had a make-your-own option, as I could probably design up 10 different pairs.

Does anyone know anything about either these Slip on Skidgrips or Deck Stars?

Question: what's the situation with Jack Purcell Racearounds and rain? would the water ruin those suedey patches along the sides?

Oddly enough, I've never owned a pair of converse sneakers, although I've owned many pairs of Vans. I'm hoping to buy a pair of the Reigning Champ x Converse sneakers when they drop, but am not sure about sizing. I wear a 10.5 in Vans and 10 in Clarks Originals. Should I go with 10 in Converse as well?
