Boston-based sneaker brand, PF Flyers, announces a new retail partner heading into the 2009 summer season. For the first time in the brand’s 72 year history, PF Flyers will premiere at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Kicking off this new retail partnership, the brand’s men’s collection will debut as part of a Father’s Day exclusive titled, The Sporting Life, beginning on June 18th. Featuring six limited, exclusive and/or early-release styles from PF Flyers’ collection, Saks adds the American sneaker brand to its portfolio of men’s casual fashion footwear.
PF Flyers has found recent success with many of its classic styles which tap into the sneaker brand’s American heritage roots. Several new timeless “reissue” sporting styles have been selected for early release at Saks including the PF Flyers Vantage, Sumfun (tennis), SportShu (baseball), and a new iteration of the Bob Cousy All-American Low Top (basketball). Additionally, the brand’s latest modern offerings, a color revealing patent leather Center Hi and a metal mesh Glide Hi Top will be unveiled in limited quantities.
