The PF Flyers Are The Original Basketball Sneaker, And They Can Be All Yours This Holiday Season

Presented in partnership with PF Flyers…

Many of us know about PF Flyers being the shoe Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez flew around the base paths in during the classic baseball movie The Sandlot, but did you know that the shoes were also the original sneaker choice of Hall of Famer baller Bob Cousy, too? That doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be knocking down jumpers or dishing the rock like Cousy did during his playing days, but it does mean you’ll get to rock some classic style like they did in the good ol’ days.

To help you upgrade your style this fall and winter, it’s time to take a step back into time and bring the OG kicks back — the PF Flyers Center Hi and the PF Flyers Center Lo — which are both available in a variety of colors to help bring some life to your wardrobe during these colder months.



Whether you’re wearing chinos or jeans, the PF Flyers is the move when it comes to showing off your style. Plus, while everyone else wears bulky kicks that resemble moon shoes while stomping around at the bars, you’ll get more attention in the subtle design of an All-American classic, no matter if you go with the Center Hi or Center Lo.

Since we care about your street style, and swag, here’s a closer look at why Bob Cousy’s choice of sneaker 60 years ago still holds true for dudes everywhere today.


Center Hi

These are the OG hoops sneakers, with Bob Cousy alluding defenders and sinking buckets wearing these bad boys. And, while they may not be the shoes that promise to help you jump higher these days, they’re still absolutely badass, and are versatile enough to pair with any jeans or khaki. Thanks to multiple colorways, you can really stand out when hitting the town with buddies in these.


Center Lo

Not quite a fan of the PF Flyers Center Hi? No worries, because they make a Center Lo version that’s just as clean as the original, but without the added height. Simplistic in design, the agile sneakers can be worn with pants during the fall, and, when necessary, will pair perfectly with some shorts or rolled up khakis once the warmer weather finally returns. And, like the Center Hi, the Center Lo version are sure to steal looks no matter where you go while wearing them.
