Airwalk brings back the Vic.

When Airwalk’s Vic hit the scene in 1987, it made an indelible mark on the industry as one of the most iconic skate styles of all time. With an all-suede upper, extra ankle padding, a reinforced toe area and a Velcro flap designed to help skaters from blowing out laces during aggressive sessions, the Vic was the most technical skate shoe available then. Just as important was the marketing campaign featuring the fictional upper class champion of the sports world, Victor Novettipolae.
