Those look great. Way better than the made in USA ones!

Understatement of the year.

Hehe :) i own both, the japanese made all American and the US made Center Hi and both are fantastic on the feet. Both are build well with great comfort imho. I also like both lookwise but thats me:)


I'll agree to disagree. Having seen the Made in USA pair twice in person and just seeing the Made in Japan pair in pics, it's still difficult to see how you think they are similar in quality. It's confusing because I have a lot of respect for your opinion. Whatever floats your boat man.

The aspects of the Kicks themselves are already different imho and i will not compare this archival reissue against the Center Hi which is first time produced in the US since forty years. I will also never compare a Chuck 70s repro to one of my US Vintage chucks because they are different. The 65 Japan made is really good strong Vintage feeling, very well made. The US made is very lightweight but it gives your foot extreme comfort imo, the leather linings are well made etc. i Walk a lot with the dog and i Need good trusty shoes, all my Boots sneakers i buy mainly based on comfort and quality because my hips need some support too. Of course i do Love that Vintage vibe in my sneakers, Love to wear all of them equally.
I respect everyones opinion, no prob just give PF the props for going back into US Production. Maybe there is coming some more which pleases you guys more then.
Thanks for the nice discussion Urb and fully accept your opinion
Cheers,
David

I have the Japanese made Flyers but given the choice I'd have bought the U.S. ones instead.

Love these Real McCoy's PF Flyers. They feel much sturdier and better made than even my old American converse. The canvas and laces are great and I really like how the toe slightly curves up. Tagged size 10 and fit about like a 10.5.
Many thanks @gwillig for these fine shoes!
