A classic look meets modern comfort with the Gitman Vintage Made in USA Center Hi. It starts with the timeless Center Hi sneaker silhouette from PF Flyers which is outfitted with locally sourced, 100% American made, 'seed to sew' cotton denim to create a standout shoe. Premium pig skin lining, vertically ribbed toe guards, and lightweight injection molded footbeds complete each pair, while more subtle features like a green embroidered top eyelet, chalk colored eyelets, and nylon green heel tape with zig zag stitching show the attention to detail that help set both brands apart. PF Flyers and denim — two American icons in one attractive, comfortable package.
