The All American Collection Combines PF Flyers Heritage With New Balance Technology

Old school meets new school with the All American collection from PF Flyers. The sneakers are modeled after a best-seller from the ’60s and boast vintage details to highlight that fact.

Lace up a pair and you’ll feel like playing stickball under some Fourth of July fireworks and following it up with some apple pie.
