Thirty years ago, a free decoder ring came as a bonus with a new pair of P.F. Flyers. Soon, they'll be offering a matching designer sweatshirt instead, but you'll have to pay extra. The once-popular P.F. Flyers, virtually absent from shoe stores in the 1980s, will soon be back. Flyers sold for less than $15 a pair four decades ago. The new version will cost $60 to $70. Changes, yes, but one thing remains: P.F.'s old rival, Keds.

It will be easier for American companies to wave the flag in their advertising after the Federal Trade Commission eases long-standing rules about what it takes to tout a product as "Made in the U.S.A." The agency on Monday proposed new regulations that would permit made-in-America advertising claims as long as 75% of a product's manufacturing cost is incurred in the United States, or if imported raw materials are "substantially transformed" into a new product at a U.S. factory.

Caught in an awkward dispute with a New England shoe company over its use of the "Made in USA" label, the Federal Trade Commission conceded Tuesday that it is not entirely sure what an American product is anymore. The FTC put off a court hearing that would have tested its earlier finding that New Balance Athletic Shoes Inc. must quit using a "Made in USA" label on its shoes and drop its All-American ad campaign, even though it makes most of its shoes in Massachusetts and Maine.
