Anyone have any experience with PF Flyers? There are a blacked out leather pair in Burlington for $22 that have tempted me lately
[close]



Maybe 10 yrs ago i skated tons of pf flyers--was used to skating normal non skate chucks and the flyers were constructed better and lasted longer...don't think my feet could handle them now but maybe with an aftermarket insole? I thought the texture on the toecap sidewall looked so cool

Had a childhood friend that skated these exclusively, prolly still wears them, that dude was so fucking ILL he would skate the shitty metal ramp with loose ass PF Flyers going hundred miles an hour, doing frontside slash grinds and airs but could still krooked grind to back lip the flat bar he was also extremely successful with the ladies at a time when most of my crew were scared to talk to the opposite sex, Josh rules

Got some of the Reebok x sneeze club c grounds in the sale and they've skated really well. Most Reebok's skate well though

As much as these might seem mutually exclusive, maybe he and Bastien were on to something.
