 :D  I had PF flyers, when I was a kid. I remember them in the 50's and the 60's.... I didn't even know they were around anymore. I remember the little circle insignia on the side...

EEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!

Sorry, unless a person is working out, running shoes are such a fashion faux pas.  However, the only pair I have when I play squash are Reebox.  Are they a great pair, I don't know but the kinda fit me feet ok!  I still prefer my lace up gong fu shoes (very similar to soccer shoes I've been told  but without the cleats) for activity: they have great support and are extremely light weight. 

Cheers,

Alan

The slogan was:

"PF Flyers make you run your fastest and jump your highest".  I HAD to have a pair when I was a kid.  SO much more fashionable than Keds.

But then I went to junior high school, where I abandoned PF Flyers for Carolina Blue Converse All-Stars.  I wore those until I headed off to college in Blue Heaven, where I switched to white Cons.

OMG I remember them like yesterday.  PF FLyers were the rage.  My secret decoder whistle, I am still looking for.  I have mentioned them here before, and now they are on the forefront.  My life is complete

When I was in high school (late '60s), the really cool varsity club thing to wear was Converse black high-tops with white socks. If I recall, Chuck Taylors were pretty pricey for "play shoes" in those days...like $10-$12 a pair.

Teresa jogged my memory about the PFs. I think the commercial said something about "Run your fastest...and jump your highest." Not very grammatical, but it must have been catchy if it still sticks with me.

Aren't they skateboard shoes?

Believe it or not, I have a pair of orange Pure Juice skateboard shoes. My sons told me they are really comfortable, so I tried them and they were right.

And I haven't ridden a skateboard since 1968.

thank you for your help with this very serious debate  :D

i think i will stick to my converse for the moment...and it is far too hot for trainers anyway, time to break out the sandals methinks.

swededish, you are truly the imelda marcos of converse...i have four pairs, my favourites being my red silk/chinese print pair, closely followed by the brown corduroy pair.

Nothing wrong with the old tried and true, but Saucony and Birkenstock are now my main stays.
