The Vision

Sure, preparation leads to success for a few, but for everyone else, it's the complete train wreck that really pays off -- like when the top of a truck gets shorn off by a bridge and spills candy everywhere, or someone forgets to wear underwear. Offering up the rewards of their predecessor's boondoggle, The Vision.

The Story: when the South St. Reebok store shuttered last year, the space was snatched up by a retailer so fly-by-night they didn't even name themselves before folding, then signing over their deed/inventory to The Vision -- who're now unloading some very quality back-stock at get-that-crap-out-of-here prices. For starters, there are three full racks of buy one, get one free from a fine selection of Nikes, to Energie jeans and cargos, to button-downs from White Tag Denim and Jordan Craig -- which sounds like an R&B singer, making your purchase a soulful duet. Lining the walls is gear labeled 40-70% off, including Nostic tees, vests from Avalanche, Epic Hero Army jackets, button-downs from Mondo and Empra, and Hama cargo pants; the owner's also declared his willingness to haggle over any full-priced items like a Russian woman over a turnip.

Meanwhile, The Vision's own vision is a bit hazy: once the remnant inventory's gone, the intention's to transform the space into a denim mecca, but so far the only stock they've settled on is high-end brand Vigoss -- whatever, as long as they don't start selling underwear and ruining it for everyone.
