PF Flyers Made in USA

Founded in 1933 as Posture Foundations by BF Goodrich, PF Flyers is an unheralded yet classic American brand. PF Flyers were huge throughout the 1950s and '60s – basketball icon Bob Cousy wore PF's on the court, cartoon character Johnny Quest hawked them in TV ads, and the shoes were issued to enlisted men in the military. In the 1970s, the brand was sold to Converse, but due to an anti-trust lawsuit that claimed that if the companies combined, they would have a monopoly on the sneaker market, PF Flyers changed hands multiple times and, for a while, flew under the radar. In 2001, Boston-based running shoe company New Balance purchased the brand and re-launched it in 2003. However, it wasn't until 2015 that New Balance brought the manufacturing of the PF Flyer brand to its Boston factory, where it began crafting the first made-in-USA PF's in 40 years. 

 

The result is the PF Flyer Made in USA Center Hi. We're one of just a handful of select retailers to carry these brand new sneakers, and since they've arrived, we've absolutely fallen in love with them. Don't let its visual similarity to certain other retro-styled, canvas high-top sneakers confuse you – the Made in USA Center Hi is an entirely unique sneaker. The first thing you'll notice when looking at a pair is all of the exterior details.  It's made from super-heavyweight 14-oz. canvas and features leather eyelet rows and toe caps, an injected-molded rubber outsole (that means it's more durable than an outsole made from standard vulcanized rubber), and even a hand-drawn midsole stripe. Without a doubt, the care, precision and attention to detail that results from the domestic manufacturing of these shoes truly shines (in fact, you can take a behind-the-scenes look at the construction of the Made in USA Center Hi's in this photo essay from Rawr Denim).

The inside is just as beautifully thought-out too. The entire inner is lined in genuine pigskin and is hand-stamped on the inner tongue. There's also a really cool nylon-ribbon reinforcement at the midway point of the eyelet row – you can only see it if you're looking, but when you find it, it's such a cool surprise and a reminder that the PF team really thought through the construction of the shoe.

And of course, there's the insole. Made at the same factory as New Balance's vaunted American-made running shoes, it's unbelievably comfortable. Like, running shoe comfortable. It's crazy. They're easily the most wearable, comfortable canvas sneaker any of us have ever worn – once you get a pair you'll never want to take them off.

We think the PF Flyer Made in USA Center Hi's are the best American-made canvas sneaker out there, and we're truly excited to be working with them and stocking them here at Freeman. We've got 'em in both white and black (oh, and ladies size 9 and up, we've got you covered).  Come try a pair on soon and see why we're so excited to be a part of this classic brand's American-made revitalization.

    Hello,

    I don’t know if they are authentic. But I was wondering if you had a pair of PF flyers that are constructed with the material tweed? Black sole w/ black toe cap. But the rest of the shoe is in gray tweed. With all black Flyer Patch on upper shoe, because I need it in a High Center.
