Road Trip: PF FLYERS POP SHOP, next stop Los Angeles: Late last year we embarked on a small retail venture with our friends over at The Brooklyn Circus to launch a POP SHOP for 75 days into the holiday to celebrate our 75th Anniversary. The success of that shop quickly sparked the idea of going on the road with a POP SHOP tour! We called some hand selected partners and planned what would become an exciting journey across the US in our PF Flyers. We left Brooklyn for Houston, Texas where everything is bigger and oh boy did we do it big. Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), Street Etiquette, Stack Aly, DJ Elroy Boogie, The Bearded Man and over 800 guests joined us for the launch of our Houston Pop Shop at Classroom.
The next stop is sunny California with the respected and globally loved guys at Selfedge on La brea in Hollywood. Join us Friday June 7th, from 6-9pm. The Pop Shop Tour will continue on with our extended PF Flyers family and friends celebrating our rich heritage at the following locations:
-The Brooklyn Circus SF, San Fransico CA July 6-7
-Sir and Madame, Chicago IL August 2-4
-The Standard, Atlanta GA September 27-28
-Ebbets Field Flannels, Seattle, WA October 4-5
-The Brooklyn Circus NYc, Brooklyn NY December 6-7 (Grand Finale)
In 2001, Boston based New Balance Athletic Shoes Inc., purchased PF Flyers, viewing it as a great match to their high-performance American brand. With pride in the heritage of PF and a determination not to rely solely on past success, PF designers modernized Posture Foundation and New Balance re-launched the PF brand in 2003. The brand has been regaining momentum since then, and remains true to its original mission of creating premium, classic sneakers rooted in authentic American style.
