This March, marks PF Flyers as 75 years young and to commemorate the occasion the brand, which is the model for true Americana footwear, will release a capsule collection, re-launch pfflyers.com and drop a video series staring a cast of the most stylistic individuals. The unisex collection consists of 3 main styles, such as the classic Center Hi and Windjammer in linen and leather, as well as the streamlined Grounder II. All will be done in a rather limited run of 500 pairs, available at select spots in North America. As for the site's re-design and re-launch, PF called on their award winning, Boston neighbors Adam & Co., who took cues from the brands rich heritage and intertwined it with modern elements. The 3rd portion of the new campaign is a video installment, which profiles personalities who share a similar aesthetic to the brand. The 1st will be none other than Mr. Brooklyn Circus himself, Ouigi Theodore. Keep watch for PF Flyers as they expand and evolve into a promising future...
