With the attractive handcrafted design of the quilted sneakers from Converse, it's likely that the limited-edition model will be quickly picked up by its large loyal consumer base.

Taking the silhouette of its well-loved 'Jack Purcell' model, the skate shoe brand diversifies it with an unique upper. With a black and white colorway with minimal baby blue accents, the quilted sneakers are easy to incorporate into everyday wear. What makes the sneakers stand out from some of the brand's other variations of the Jack Purcell, other than the quilted upper, is the inclusion of leather boarders that carry up from near the laces to the back of the heel.

In addition, the quilted sneakers are made to withstand frigid temperatures and are incredibly comfortable, with a leather sock liner and "Nike’s Zoom Air cushioning technology" included.
