Market Watch: Glides by PF-Flyers

Zandile Blay

This holiday season, PF-Flyers is digging into its rich archives to reissue a series of retro sneakers dating as far back as the early 1950s. The best of the bunch has got to be the Glide sneaker. Originally released in 1979, this classic basketball shoe still has the brand's vintage logo, but has been updated with some seriously modern skins: laquered patent leather with mettalic quilted fabric in either brownish-gold or silver. The Glides retail for approximately $170. Visit to see where you can buy these when they hit stores next month.
