no that's not a newer picture, it's older. the pic in the start of the thread is from close to me remix video (1990) and this one here's one of the promo shots for 'disintgeration' (= spring 1989).

i find it impossible to say if looks young or old because the picture is so rough (black and white only).

Hey Dave, yeah my friend and I were on the hunt for a long time.  The black ones are also hi tecs. 
Look at the picture of the soles on the ones he's wearing in the picture from wish.  Then the one I'm holding up are another pair of old Hi Tecs.

Dave, here are more pics if you're interested.  Also if you visit the Hi-Tec UK Facebook page you'll see a post they put up for me trying to get them to relaunch this line of sneakers.  We're trying to gather some support if you're interested!   
If you look at the soles again on his shoes compared to the catalog images you see that they match.
