At my size, 8D (mens), the fit is snug but all right. Size 8.5D might've been better. The width is a bit narrow though not squeezing. I don't lace my shoes real tight. And I'll never wear real thick socks with them.
I was a bit put off by what appeared to be their cheap manufacture: essentially its molded rubber vulcanized together with canvas, finished inside with a plain cardboard footplate and a molded foam insert. Fifty years ago maybe they were made the same way. I don't recall. Little kids don't look for quality of manufacture. So -- four stars instead of five. Oh well, at least the shoelaces are still cotton and not woven nylon.
PF Flyers Company today has done a good job of marketing their shoes in various color-combos, materials and configurations. And they're not price prohibitive to most pocketbooks. I got mine via Amazon for a very low price which is why I went for them.
I prefer the Bob Cousy shoe, but they're harder to come by, so I settled on the Sandlots this time. I like the Bob Cousy a little better because I can tie them a little tighter up a little higher on my foot—so the ankle opening doesn't get quite as loose. My feet move around a bit more in this shoe than in the Bob Cousys.
Alas, I still love them, they're still comfy, and I still wear them all day about 5 days a week.
First, the sizing. I take 9 and 1/2 in Converse, and 10 and 1/2 in PF Flyers.
I also take a 9 and 1/2 wide in Rockport.
I got the PF flyers in 10 and 1/2, and then replaced the enclosed 54 inch laces with 63 inch laces, The longer laces made it possible to tie them looser, so they could fit wider feet.
For the quality difference with Converse, it's no comparison. PF Flyers last longer. Converse will wear out in less than two months of daily wear, or in three months of weekend wear. Converse wear out so fast, that I wonder if their soles have an additive that make them wear through faster.
It's nice to have the look of classic sneakers with PF Flyers, and to have them last longer.
I wear 8.5 for canvas Vans and 7.5 for high top Converse. For this shoe, I found that 7 fits me. So you might have to order and return at least once before you figure it out but Amazon does returns for free (as long as not damaged) so that's not a problem.
The shoe a lot more comfortable than Converse and I like the way it looks. I will probably order another pair in a different color as well.
He says he wants me to add that these shoes are second in comfort only to his beloved Patagonia Air Mauis, which are the most comfortable shoes on earth, so that's really sayin' somethin'.
PF Flyers are SO much more comfy than Converse- they're a bit wider- and you gotta love the "posture wedge"! Actual support- awesome. Your legs and back do not get tired while wearing these, even when you're on your feet for 8 hours. Nice.
My only gripe with PF Flyers is that the rubber of the edge begins to pull away from the cloth where your foot bends pretty quickly; but they are so much more comfortable than any other low-top that I don't care. I have them in 5 colors. I will say that the PF Flyers I've bought this year seem to be running a teeny bit larger than in the past- FYI.
