Airwalk Vics

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
I used to have a pair of Airwalk Vic's. The low-top model without the velcro lace guard, black with a white ollie guard. God I loved those shoes... The Vic has been reissued, but is only available in Europe. I think I need a pair. *sigh*

I posted about these a while ago on one of those grade school reminiscence threads. Some German guy on ebay has been selling them for a while. That exact one is the one I had, and I wore them completely to death. I still want another pair.

They are actually fairly similar to the Japanese "safety shoes" you have...

Their regular line is now sold in Payless. I had the black ones with the white Puma-like stripe on them in the third grade and a different variation of them all the way through middle school. My best Airwalk buy was right before the line disappeared for sometime when I found a pair at Kohl's that rang up for $4.50. I've never owned a pair of Vans though AFAIR, and I'm gonna get a few pairs in the spring.

Are you just talking about Airwalks in general? Because I've never seen Vics with a white puma-like stripe, and I havent seen Vics for sale in the US since the early 90's. Especially not in payless. They are going for 55 Euros ($80 something dollars) right now overseas...

Have you ever tried the Vics? Much better looking, IMO than any of those, and much better for actual skating, since they aren't as bulky and awkward. I never understood the movement to hugely bulbous skate-shoes.

I was talking about the regular Airwalks. I never had the Vics.

These skateboarding brands alwasy seem to pump out quality shoes.

I forgot about these shoes. Had them. Loved them. Not sure I could get away with it anymore, especially as I don't skate frequently these days. But yeah, wow! Remember those airwalk desert boots? They had the sawtooth soles? Yeah. I'd love to have them back in the rotation.

I never did skate all that much, I sucked ass at it. BUT These were similar in size and shape to a Chuck Taylor/Jack Purcell's without being a complete knockoff, and I was thinking it might make a good all around casual shoe. Not really into the Camo shoe thing though. Probably in a blue, black or white.

Yeah, the Vic's are definitely my favorite, though I am biased. You can get them here (U.S.) as well, we just switch out what shoes we are making all the time. Skate shoes like the Vic's are more likely to surface right about now as we are ramping up for summer. We've got some good ones coming this season, after we're done testing 'em out. Can't release a skate shoe until we test them on the ramps ourselves http://www.airwalk.com

Seriously!?!?!?!

OMG. If Vic's become available this year in the US, I think I might cry.

I would be incredibly happy.

Those shoes and skate his were the most heinous looking shoes when I was a kid. It's good to see I've retained my impeccable taste and continue to believe that is the case.
