    Personal taste really. Canvas is more casual than leather. Personally I'd go for leather at the same price.

    High-tops are fugly. Since when do badminton shoes come in high-tops? Stick with the originals.

    I'd order both and keep the pair you like most after seeing them in person [​IMG]

    I have both and I personally like the leather versions better. It just feels more stable in my feet.

    Black canvas or white leather for me. Something about the black laces bugs me...

    Keep in mind the canvas breathes better and I had to size down 1/2 from my canvas size for the leather ones.

    For a dollar more, I'd definitely go with leather... in fact I already did. I own black pair and a white pair both in leather [​IMG]

    Canvas, canvas, canvas. (And I prefer the white version).

    I don't own any Purcells yet but my impression of the canvas oxfords in the store is that they're just a glorified Chucks Low-top. But leather gives them a little more substance, versatility, and class, imo.
