• The Sandlot is THE Summer Classic

    You know how people watch A Christmas Story, A Charlie Brown Christmas, or Home Alone during Christmastime?  Well those movies are to wintertime what The Sandlot is to summer.

    You guys know our affinity for The Sandlot.  It’s one on a long list of movies that I can play in the background or watch over and over again.  Also on that list are Gone in 60 Seconds, The Rock, The Fast and The Furious, and The Waterboy.  Well MovieChopShop went back in time and did a review of the movie, which I appreciate.  

    “The Shoes That Make You Run Faster and Jump Higher”

    If you didn’t know, we are huge fans of The Sandlot (as seen on Quotation Rotation.)  So when PF Flyers contacted us, we could not help but get excited for the new line-up.  We must be doing something right if people are contacting US to show us stuff that we like, instead of us begging other brands for something exclusive and hearing the resounding and inevitable, “Nay.”  Nothing tops the e-mail they sent to us though…

    Ripped straight from the inbox…

    I’d love to have you check out PF Flyers sneakers because they are totally sick and will definitely be up your alley.  I attached a couple of my personal favorites but also included their digital books below.  PF has been around for over 70 years and has transformed itself from that dorky sneaker in the Sandlot to a high fashion kick with the most premium materials.

    My favorite aspect of PF Flyers are their distinctive variation on the classic lo and hi-top.  For example, their shoes have the signature enlarged toe that separates them from other brands, most notably Chucks and Vans.  I’m glad that the shoes have maintained in the spotlight for over 70 years or else it might as well could have ended up as that dorky shoe from The Sandlot…*
