Josh Reddick has had a helluva career, but as the first MLB player to wear PF Flyers in a game, his legend will never die.
The nostalgia factor for the PF Flyer is off the charts. Of course, Benny the Jet “pickled the beast” in the Flyers in all-time great baseball movie Sandlot (1993), which was set in 1962, at a time when PF Flyers were the shoe to have thanks to ads like this one (worth the click) on 1960s show “Jonny Quest.”
“Guaranteed to make a kid run faster and jump higher.”
The nostalgia inspired New Balance to bring these back, and Josh Reddick didn’t waste any time gaming them. The cleat is amazingly available (at the link), and luckily, its been updated since 1964. New Balance soles on both composite (like COMPv1) and metal spikes make this cleat a legitimate option for Sandlot heroes everywhere. Get them at the link.
