One of the most prominent cinematic endeavors of the past 20 years is the 1993 film, The Sandlot — a coming-of-age tale revolving around a group of rambunctious, baseball playing youth in the summer of 1962. In the movie, an iconic pair of PF Flyers belonged to Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez and featured a black and green silhouette that put the other characters’ sneakers to shame. Now, the New Balance owned and operated brand is reintroducing their famous Sandlot Center Hi shoe, but this time, with a dynamic athletic twist.
The new PF Flyers find their niche as a common lace-up that touts a stylish silhouette suited for the blacktop but purposed for the baseball field. And what’s more perfect for a baseball-oriented, retro throwback than a pair of fashionable cleats? In their most recent iteration, the PF Flyers utilize a reinforced black canvas upper, REVlite midsole, and a tried and true composite 9-spike layout cleat system that makes for one heck of a nostalgic collaboration. “Heroes get remembered, but legends never die.”
