I didnt find a thread so thought we can open up to share our experience with PF Flyers

Nice summary with a fantastic vintage pair from the vintage showroom London

@Jordan23

gonna write a few lines when I have a min...

sizing: US9 JPN 27 pretty much on par with a standart US 9 PF Flyers model and a tad (minimal) bigger than a tagged 70s Converse US 8.5 / UK 8.5 / JPN 27, depending on your feet and fit like, I would go for the same JPN size or a half down if you prefer / wear a snug fit.

JPN 26 = US 8
JPN 265 = US 8.5
JPN 27 = US 9

and so on...

sizing on the lows might be different

I like those made in Japan one's, Rocket. I saw the new Made in USA versions and I have to say, some of the ugliest shoes I've ever seen. Felt so fucking cheap. At $140 I feel embarrassed for anyone buying them.

Mine arrived today and can't say I'm embarrassed ;)  Super comfy and light weight, just like a pair of NB's. My first pair of PF's and I'm liking the change from chucks. I went for the black, will post some pics in the coming days.
