Presented in partnership with PF Flyers…
Forget all these new kicks that have signature designs for pro athletes, because the real OG in the sneaker clubhouse has always been the PF Flyers; an original hightop that reached legendary status thanks to the popular baseball movie, The Sandlot. And, if you’ve ever walked by someone wearing a pair of PF Flyers, you know that the ultimate sign of respect is a simple head nod to acknowledge them — and, thanks to a re-release of the classic kicks, more people can be wearing them these days.
That’s right, bros, PF Flyers are hitting the shelves once again, and they’re better than ever thanks to some improved and updated support that will make the original Sandlot Center Hi your everyday sneak.
The Sandlot Center Hi features the same design as it always has — vertically-ribbed toe and distinctive treaded outsole, topped with classic, throwback branding and the Posture Foundation insert that helped revolutionize sneaker comfort over 50 years ago. To put it bluntly, the PF Flyers Sandlot Center Hi are as close to the same as they were when your grandpa was hooping on the blacktop with his buddies, or rounding the bases on a dirt baseball field on those late summer nights.
Then again, it’s 2018, so these new PF Flyers have been perfected a bit to keep up with the current designs. That’s why the PF Flyers Sandlot Center Hi have been updated for cooler temps to help breathe easier, as well as having the signature rigid wedge comfort insert to provide superior cushioning. Add in the flat cotton laces, 10 oz. Duck canvas, ribbed toe bumper and a molded rubber ankle patch, and these are like a finely-aged whiskey for your feet.
Retailing for $60, the PF Flyers Sandlot Center Hi are the most recent proof that, while heroes get remembered, legends never die. And there isn’t a better pair of sneakers to complement your style this winter than these — because nothing ever beats an original.
