The 'PF Flyers x Todd Snyder Grounder' are a pair of vintage sneakers that were designed with the inspiration of 1940s and 1950s US military boots.

The designer is often inspired by the military and so introducing these particular shoes was particularly important to him. The shoes come in either an olive green or black style and have black midsoles and outsoles. The military inspiration behind these vintage sneakers is clear as their canvas material, colors and structure all indicate what they were designed after.

By recreating a design that was prominent in earlier days, the brand is able to reinterpret the past in a way that is still fashionable, modern and appealing to Millennials.
