Somebody at Converse is reading this blog.

liberty Jack Purcells

I can hear the conversation in the meeting right now. "That Erin, over at Dress A Day — she *really* loves Jack Purcells."

"Yeah, that's right. She says she has a dozen pairs! But she buys them on eBay. We have to figure out a way to get her to buy them from us."

"Well, what else does she like?"

"Hmmm … let's look at the dossier: Georgette Heyer, Wired magazine, collars, Cadbury Mini Eggs …"

"Those are not exactly SHOE CONCEPTS, dude."

"Not even the Mini Eggs? Girls love chocolate and shoes, you know that."

"I'm going to pretend that didn't come out of your mouth. Do you want the Manolo to mock you?"

"Wait! She loves this stuff — "Liberty prints"? You heard of those?"

"You heard of Google?"

"Holy bingo! — this is it. Get those Liberty people on the phone!"

"But will she really spend $100 on a pair of sneakers? Won't she just wait for them to show up on eBay?"

"Watch and see, grasshopper. Watch and see."

Yeah, they have my number, all right. I don't know if I can spend $100 on these! But … LIBERTY! JACK PURCELLS! It's not my favorite Liberty print. It's not my favorite colorway. But LIBERTY JACK PURCELLS! Do you think this will work?

Dear Converse,

I wear a Men's size 6.5, and I will wear these everywhere and stop everyone who passes me, just like the Ancient Mariner, to tell them about LIBERTY JACK PURCELLS.

You know what I'm hinting at.

Your pal,


I'm also tempted by these, but I have to try them on first:

liberty Jack Purcells

But — LIBERTY JACK PURCELLS! They may get me yet.
