Back in 1937, in the same year that PF Flyers was founded, an animated short was released that featured Popeye the Sailor Man taking the mound against his arch-nemesis, Bluto. 78 years later, PF Flyers has launched a collection that celebrates the great American pastime, featuring a theme that revisits the heated rivalry between the iconic King Features animated characters. The key piece from the pack takes the form of the Opening Day Rambler Hi, designed with retro athletic style highlighted by a baseball stitch down the heel. Details include a full grain leather upper, gunmetal eyelets and flat waxed cotton laces, featured on both the Popeye-themed colorway in cream and Bluto-inspired pair in contrast black. The dual themed coloring continues through the rest of the collection, which includes wooden bats from Mitchell Bat Company, wool ballcaps from Ebbets Field Flannels and leather baseballs from Leather Head Sports. The Opening Day collection is available now through PF Flyers’ online store.
