The Colors of PF Flyers Shoes

PF Flyers are a brand of shoe that has a rich 70-year history. Originally patented in 1933 as "Posture Foundation" insoles, the company simplified its brand in 1937 to be known as PF Flyers, and since then its shoes have become a staple in innovation and comfort for men's and women's sneakers. PF Flyers offer a very wide colour variety for their different shoe designs, and that's one of the reasons they remain popular today.


PF Fliers' Center-Hi model sneakers are the classic high-top shoes for which PF Flyers is known. Center-Hi model sneakers are available in a multitude of colours, including traditional hues like red, blue, green, white, black, yellow, purple, brown, orange, and pink. PF Flyers also makes Center Hi's in more "offbeat" colours of grey, beige, tan, taupe, burgundy, cyan blue, off-white, forest green, olive, black olive, ginger, magenta, silver, maroon, and silver.


The Center-Los from PF Flyers resemble the Center-Hi shoe, except they're a low-cut sneaker. The Center-Lo model is available in a large selection of colours, including the "basics," red, white, black, blue, yellow, purple, and pink, and the more unusual, burgundy, natural, grey, light grey, turquoise, taupe, and firebrick.

Sumfun and New Vantage

PF Flyer's Sumfun model sneakers are modelled after 1950s era tennis shoes. They're available in basic colours such as red, white, black, blue, green, and grey, as well as in more unusual shades of olive, off-white, wine, natural, navy blue, tan, indigo, ivory, and oxblood. The New Vantage model sneakers by PF Flyers are reminiscent of the 1940s era chevron-accented inspired tennis shoes. They're available in indigo, beige, grey and black.

Cousy All Americans and Grounder-Hi

Bob Cousy All Americans model sneakers by PF Flyers were the result of the first sneaker collaboration with a professional athlete, in 1958. The Cousy All Americans come in the basic colours of red, blue, black, and white, and more unusual hues of tan, navy blue, light grey, grey, and natural hickory stripe. The Grounder-Hi model sneakers by PF Flyers, baseball- inspired sneakers with lugged tread, are available in navy blue, grey, black, green, and natural.

Number 5 and Glide

The Number 5 model sneaker by PF Flyers is its original, deconstructed low profile sneaker. The Number 5 sneaker comes in basic colours--red, blue, white, black, and grey--as well as in light brown, light grey, dark brown, beige, olive, taupe, tan, off-white, and navy blue. The Glide model sneakers by PF Flyers, 1970s era basketball-inspired two-tone sneakers, are available in basic colours like red, brown, grey, white, and black, as well as more unusual tones of tan, black/gold, black/red, copper, silver, navy blue, dark grey/blue, white/black, wine, midnight blue, white/green, navy blue/orange, and natural/red.
