Only black or white ones seem too look good, occasionally a brown one

What do you guys have and what other colors are worth checking out?

I kind of like the light grey leather ones that came out recently.

I already own their shoes in black and white so I would go with grey as the next color to get. Maybe navy blue (if they even sell that)

I own at least 12 pairs of both black and white, some are still in the box as back up (I like my shoes to look clean). I just copped a pair of grey, brown and navy, I think grey is my most favorite color because they work with everything...

yeah, i have a shoe hook-up from back in my dunk and sb days. he pretty much gives me a wholesale price for most of my purchases just because he knows i buy my shoes in bulk (6 or more pairs at a time)...

I have a brown leather pair, Adirondack series if I'm not wrong. They look quite good. I'm now trying to find those light grey leather ones, but here in Italy the US 12 is so rare.

I saw a cool pair of washed green ones at Von Maur, but they were 70$.

I like the blue a lot.

What is the difference between Purcells and Chucks? Seriously.

Jack Purcells are padded, and more like a traditional sneaker, and are thus slightly clunkier. Also, the black line that goes around the top of the sole of Chucks is only on the toecap of the Purcells, creating what's referred to as the "smile."

Personally I think the "smile" looks kind of silly, so I only own Chucks.

Thank you. Interesting when you say that a Jack Purcell is more like a traditional sneaker since I've always thought a Chuck Taylor All Star was the traditional sneaker. It's somewhat older I believe. As am I. Have been wearing Chucks since I was 10 and I'm 6 times that now. But never tried a Jack Purcell. James Dean liked them I've heard.​
