Don’t get me wrong, I respect all shoes with decency. But PF Flyers, once a Converse Brand and now a New Balance brand, bother me. I mean, come on, some PF Flyers are complete rip offs of the original Chuck Taylors, yes revisions have been made but the idea exists.
Okay, now that I have got rid of some steam, I will direct you to the PF Flyers Wikipedia page. Interesting history for a shoe that is still in popular culture, and a respectful shoe at that. If there is one thing that bothers me about PF Flyers is the mentality behind the brand, people feel that their PF Flyers are more legit than Chucks, but perhaps I am mistaken.
I did run across a pretty dapper pair of Chucks the other day, check them out:
