Why buy this NOS Cardstock 1950's PF Flyers Canvas Shoes Family Standup Sign?

Own a piece of Americana with this PF Flyers sign from the 1950's. The sign advertised one of the most popular shoe brands of the 20th century, PF Flyers. The "PF" comes from "Posture Foundation," the name of the arch support insole technology that was incorporated into the shoe. Hyman Witman and B.F. Goodrich patented the technology in 1933 and shortened the name to "PF" four years later. Shoes with the insoles exploded in popularity, with some even becoming standard issue for certain military outfits. The 1940's saw the company expand with new lines of women's and children's shoes, while also making other kinds of shoes, such as oxfords and moccasins, with the technology. PF Flyers would be the first shoes with an athlete endorsement, as the company signed a deal with Bob Cousy of the Boston Celtics in 1958. PF Flyers also sponsored popular television shows, including the Mickey Mouse Club and Jonny Quest. Although the brand had 20% market share on canvas sneakers in the 1960's, the company struggled in the 1970's as the industry underwent some major changes.

A Great Piece for a Rec Room

This sign would make a great display piece for a rec room or mancave. The vintage sign is new old stock and was found in its original box in a shoe store. While it may have some minor wear, it is still in excellent condition which is not something you see every day since many such signs were disposed of after use. Made by Hood Footwear Products in Chicago, Illinois, this heavy cardstock sign weighs about 12 oz and measures 27" x 11" when unfolded. This sign comes with a certificate of authenticity.
