I heard that Vision in Australia was not going to continue with any of its original/classic styles but try to come up with new street wear, not skate clothing?
Vision was cool in the 1980's but when it went under in the 90's then came back and then sold off to payless shoes, it all started to go wrong.

Dont get me wrong I love Vision Street Wear and still wear the hi tops and hoodies, so if you are goning to bring back alot of the original stuff, I will be buying from you guys.

Good luck and please bring back Vision DV 9's and even some more Re-Ish Boards.

Also post a link t oyour website.

Cheers
Taras

Oh, I have nothing to do with the store just posting that it's there and has opened. South end of King St, Newtown.
I went in there today, it's only a small store and it's only in it's opening stages but it's pretty cool.
They have a few old decks on display (not actually for sale), a lot of cool tee's (gator graphic, logo, jinx, gonz, psycho stick design, agressor design, punk skull etc)
I GOT MYSELF A PUNK SKULL SINGELT! Prob won't wear out in public though hahah, more of a novelty for the house.
They have hoodies, and jeans and shorts all Vision brand...prices aren't too bad but what you would expect these days.
I also got a really cool colourful Vision logo that was on the top of one of the old decks I can't remember, i'll post some pics anyways.
Manager said they are doing a bunch of new designs withvintage photo's of Gator skating etc etc.
I'll prob go back in there when they get more stock.

the store is located down south end about 550 something (no numbers on the shops around there). it looks ok from the outside - all shoes and shirts but no one manning the store today which pissed me off as i had just ridden half an hour on my bike to get there. meant to be open from 11-7pm.

Are they reissuing the canvas high tops that were basically Chuck Taylor rip offs with the ollie pad on the side, does anyone know? They were some of the coolest skate shoes ever.

Jono,
They re-issued most of the canvaas hi-tops and the Suede Hi-Tops, I am skating the suede ones and they are better than the originals as they are not as stiff.

Let me know what size and pattern you want and i should be able to get a pair from The Distributor of Vision.

Cheers
Taras

they're real cool at that Vision Street Wear shop . They can also ship I recieved my swade hi tops today .Origional packing with four big stickers and four little ones. As they sorted me out well I just thought I'de give them some props. Keep in mind though that they are about 1 1/2 sizes bigger than your vans style shoes. I had to measure my vans and luckily got the nine, I normally take a ten. The chick there was real helpful an I hope that there store does well. Cool

yep David Jones and Myer...
why? Think pink collar-up polo shirts, and rippling biceps... Yes, its now owned by Industrie clothing.
and its just by the skin of our teeth that we aren't buying re-issue Vision decks from the same stores.

So don't be suprised if we're soon rolled for our shoes and shirts by some fully sik metros....

Hahaha.. No way! I was going to diss the hell out of Vision Street Wear for being in the same league as Trendapendant, but now I have to bite my tongue. Why? Because until 30 minutes ago, I had no idea that the helpfull chick is a friend. The red head that is.
