This week we're releasing two classic PF silhouettes in leather—the All American Hi in silver and the Center Hi in black. We love the way a classic and elevated pair of sneakers can take an everyday outfit from casual to elevated. Both of these new sneakers have the potential for real staying power in your closet—one a bold statement maker in silver, and one a polished classic in black. Read on for what makes these sneakers instant classics and how we'd style them right out of the box.
All American Hi Silver—
Legendary Boston Celtic player and member of the NBA 75, Bob Cousy, originally laced up this style in 1957, and now they're back with a premium modern look. The All American features vintage detailing and honors a tradition rooted in comfort. Inspired by the court and designed for long lasting comfort.
This All American Hi style features a metallic leather with silver eyelets, a waxed lace, and the diamond PF Flyers logo in suede. This design is inspired by a very limited Heddels collaboration from 2018 that celebrated PF Flyers as the unofficial off-duty shoe of American astronauts. The original collaboration resulted in only 21 pairs of shoes (the number of spacesuits NASA used in the Mercury space program), and we're thrilled to offer this 2023 release as a seasonal PF style.
Center Hi Black—
The Center has been a PF Flyers icon and classic basketball silhouette for nearly a century, and this version of the Center Hi is a modernized take on the original.
The Center Classic Hi features a mid cut upper, our distinctive ribbed toe guard, a durable rubber outsole, and the feeling of Posture Foundation comfort. We merged our heritage design with modern day street style through modern details like the new diamond-shaped ankle patch and tonal stitching. The upper is made of smooth leather certified by the Leather Working Group, an industry standard committed to best practices and positive social and environmental change for responsible leather production.
We can't wait to see how you style your favorite pair. Go ahead, show off your style.
