Earlier this year we gave you a look at the return of Vision Street Wear and one of their most memorable models, the Suede Hi. Of course with the Vision's popularity in the eighties being the pinnacle of their history, the design of their holiday releases seem to tie into the memory banks but also have a very sign of the times influences as well. Then again as things seem to always comes full circle and history repeats itself, these styles may be new but they also have a striking familiarity which makes them

For the upcoming holiday season they've got a handful of new models. First up is the Crusader Low which is a vulc-soled model that comes in a black and red colorway. A mix of suede and perforated material, as well as a padded tongue and collar combined with a reinforced toe make this traditional styled skate shoe fully capable. The plastic overlay on the side adds a little style and the plaid lining is as much 1985 as it is 2010.

Another model that Vision has ready for the holidays is the East Twentieth. The East Twentieth design is aimed at those that desire a more simple style. The canvas model features reinforced toebox surround made up of suede material which makes it a good choice for pedaling or pushing around town. The iconic Vision Street Wear logo takes its place on the tongue for the final touch.

You can grab them from www.visionstreetwear.com as well as the rest of the holiday collection.
