Those Ramblers are hot! Just ordered a black pair myself.
And now they're mine. How old do you think? Interestingly, now that I look carefully, it says they were made in Czechoslovakia.
Hmm......maybe 60's? Definitely a dime store brand which make them more interesting. I've sold similar oddities from the same era for big $$. They'll most certainly go to Japan. Check out My Freedamn (6 I think) for pages and pages of collectible sneakers.
Very cool man! They really have an old time Summer in the city look about them.
They would cool with one of these:
I've got one of these to wear with them:
Now that I have them in my hands- here are some better pictures.
For the workwear crowd:
Nice. I like these
which go for $45, and for those of us outside the US they ship internationally.
Don't forget the awesome Colchester shoes... which I still haven't bought...

Just about every shoe PF Flyers does is on this site:
Not the best prices you'll find though.
I'm about to list my 1943 PF Flyer Rambler reissues in the classifieds! Purchased almost exactly one year ago and never worn. Check it out!
It seems that the PF Flyer was the sneaker of choice among the trainees of the X-Men:First Class.
Classic 40s / 50s style Hi-Tops besides PF Flyers and Converse?
Well, it looks like PF Flyers killed off the Rambler and the Bob Cousy models and made endless horiffic colour variations of the Center Hi model. Converse are pretty much the worst shoe ever made, so I'm looking for a replacement sneaker.
Or my favorites,CEBO that appear to not be available anywhere anymore (the email from this page doesn't work) http://ceboshoes.com/ceborules/The_only_viable_alternative_to_All_Stars.html
I got my first pair form Geronimo many years ago and wore them out. I'd love a new pair.
Thanks for the reply flat-top. I remember seeing the Colchesters a couple years ago when they had black and just thinking they looked a little cheap, so I passed.
I was even interested in the PF Flyers Grounder, but thats gone too! How annoying. The search continues...
It's been a while, but I remember seeing a high top that was very classically styled.
I think you're talking about the Keds "Royal Hi Canvas"
That sucks about the PF Flyer Ramblers...got myself a pair last year and another this year on clearance. I have some Colchesters too....they are nice looking but no where near as comfortable.
I love these Keds Boosters. They are repros of their 1930's hopsack "Wino" shoes. I want every color:
AWESOME! Wish they did the black ones with a gum rubber sole instead though : (
