I found a 12, but I must share my story with you….
It really upsets me that Converse or Comme Des Garcons do not produce these cool shoes in a size 12 Jack Purcell, or an 11.5 in Converse All Stars. I am a big fan of this shoe, and would purchase all of the colorways.
I don’t know what it is about these shoes, but in reality they are just plain old Jack Purcells with a red heart on the side with some eyeballs, and a contrast black or white stripe on the back heel. (They come in both off white and black Jack Purcells & All Stars Chuck Taylors)
But you know what? Those little subtle details is what makes this shoe stand out. I know this. I am obsessed with these shoes so when I found out they did not make 12’s or 11.5 I freaked and researched until I was blue in the face.
I called all around the world, emailed stores, and even made some friends along the way. What I found out was that they used to make size 12 when they first came out a couple of years ago, when the shoe was manufactured out in the US, but since CDG is based in Japan they have now moved the manufacturing to Japan, and the largest size they make is a US 11 in all styles.
BUMMER!!!! So if Converse or Comme Des Garcons is reading this. Please make 12’s or 11.5 or bigger sizes. For those that know me… Yes I am still complaining and instagramming is not getting my message across fast enough.
Oh, BTW… I found these from a shoe collector who purchased them from another shoe collector and was in MINT condition, worn only twice.
