I'm telling you right now, the low-tops were perfect. They were the perfect balance between All-Stars and Vans slip ons. Chucks, are light, but they have no support, and the soles are kind of weak. The Vans have a great, grippy sole, but are a slip on, and a little wide throughout the body. The low top Vic had the same general sleekness and light weight as the Chucks, but also had a grippy sole and a comfortable footbed. It may very well have been the ultimate low-top sneaker. I can't find a damn picture of them anywhere!
