Pf Flyers (Patriotic era)

     During the 40s some shoe companies such as Converse Felt the need to be Patriotic companies, and manufacter shoes for U.S. military. Likewise Pf Flyers also had a patriotic era to call their own. Pf Flyers-BF Goodrich (as they where known during this time, because they were founded by BF Goodrich) were given a U.S. government contract in the 70s. The reason they were given a contract was, because Pf Flyers-BF Goodrich’s shoes had a revolutionary design which offered better comfort and less stress on the wearer’s legs. Below you’ll see the design of some unique and patriotic footwear. One last thing to note, if your looking to buy these vintage sneakers you may want to look up your local army surplus auctions as they tend to surface time to time (or so I’ve heard).
