The Transformers are incoherent fractals. The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles look like green Chucky dolls. Justin Bieber did a duet — with a hologram of Michael Jackson.
Is nothing from your childhood sacred anymore?
Just this, friend: the new high-tops from PF Flyers and Todd Snyder, on sale just now.
Way back in the day, PF — which literally has a patent on comfort — were the bee’s knees.
Boston Celtic legend Bob Cousy vouched for them.
So did Jonny Quest.
So now the revived brand has collab-ed with Todd Snyder, top American designer and crafter of excellent sartorial partnerships (witness his recent vintage sportswear redux with Champion).
The dynamic duo’s new “sneaker-dress shoe hybrid” pays tribute to the PF’s old Rambler Hi-Top while incorporating leather and suede. And keeping the comfort insoles.
Currently available in monochromatic colors like olive, charcoal and eclipse. Full leather models will follow later this fall.
All with a PF-branded side patch and a Todd Snyder-woven ankle label.
Because some classic names you’ll want to remember.
