Designer Todd Snyder and classic footwear brand PF Flyers present the latest launch in their ongoing partnership – the Grounder Hi-Top in military canvas and leather. This newest style combines Snyder’s obsession with military functionality and PF Flyer’s American legacy, resulting in a smart modern sneaker that is at home just about anywhere.

The Todd Snyder + PF Flyers Grounder combines a vintage army aesthetic with premium materials and construction and sport-fueled functionality. The versatile style – based on an iconic original from the PF Flyers archives – is constructed from 14oz military spec’d canvas, with a solid rugged rubber outsole and luxe pigskin leather lining. A new tailored last plus signature PF Flyers insert offer premium fit and comfort, while elevated rubber foxing, gunmetal eyelets and lace tips, and an embroidered leather ankle patch add a handsome touch.

“My favorite thing is digging through flea markets and hunting for treasures, so when I went to visit Christopher Tobias and the PF Flyers team in Boston and saw all their catalogs from the early 1900s it just blew me away,” says Snyder. “This new style is based on an amazing vintage sneaker in their archive from when they were making shoes for the military. The military has always been a huge source of inspiration for me, and when I saw that, I just knew we had to reintroduce it.”

The Grounder, offered in olive green and black, is now available on, and with select stockists.
