Love the Accel slim. Bought the red toe dip colorway to skate but it looked too good to wreck so it's a chiller for now. New insoles are awesome

Loved the shoe, it’s still in pretty decent condition as I’m trying to keep it that way. Only complaint I have is that the laces tore up almost within the first week. Would definitely order again in a purple ;). Honestly, it’s in my top three for sure.

Josh 8/13/20 Fresno, CA

I usually wear a size 12 and 5 months ago I had bought a different colored Es Accel Slim, but it wasn't true to size (U.S. size 12's), it was more like size 12 and a half inch for my toes to have room. It felt like they more size 11's then 12's though. So last month (July), I bought 1 size bigger, size 13's, I like the double stitching all along the soul of the shoe, I have good toe room like a size 12 but when I rise my big toes, the leather upper is stiff like a new baseball glove! Please Es, please fix that minor detail to your cool shoes. Peace-out.

Pretty nice shoes, and the flannel coat is very comfort if wear in the Winters. Too bad that its size is quite large for 8.5, I wear Nike, Adidas, and Balance that fit perfectly. I think for this brand I should buy size 7.5 or 8.0.

Love eS skateboarding. Accel slim run true to size. BUT... toe box is a little big. If I had a perfect shoe it would be an eS that fits like a Dunk low. Flick is nice, they are comfy, board feel is good.. just that are a little wide for my feet. This is about the 30th pair of eS I’ve had and I don’t remember them fitting like this. But this is the first pair of accel slims I’ve owned. I’m gonna try a different show next, silo or maybe the 23 remake

Mr. MC 5/3/20 Vermont, USA

The design of the shoe is great. It takes a lot of the best of the original Accel, but makes it less bulky and more manageable (unless that's what you want, in which case, buy the OG Accel). The only downside is the sole cushioning. It really doesn't have a midsole, so it's pretty thin under your feet. The grip on the sole is great, and with a little more insole cushioning, they are great shoes. But stock, they leave a little to be desired in the cushioning department (although they're putting the STI Energy insoles in them now, so that will probably help). Overall, they skate great and I'm glad I bought them. Got them for a good price during one of the website's sales, so I can't really see giving them less than 5 stars. I would buy another pair.

These are dope but the color I got was the black with blue inside and accents and on the website that color way showed it had one of the cool new insoles. There was even a picture of the insole if you swiped left. The pair I received did not have that insole. Bummed but still stoked on the shoes.

These shoes are sick! They look great, just like the original accel, and they are just as comfortable with the STI insole! They are also light as a feather and less bulky. The accel Slim is built to last with all the triple stitching and the soles are super grippy! I would buy these again 100%

I've been buying ES Shoes for many years now, because they are quality shoes, and incredible for taking impact whilst being very long lasting.

The shoes are strictly collectors items because this shoe looks like the Air Jordan 1 while also modeling the Nike Sb Dunk. Back in the day a Nike shoe featured mattress foam in the design of our ankle cup. Today the stitching hardly features much design or function. These are the closest resemblance of my past sneaker.

I love these shoes, but lately the quality is going downhill. The sole on the shoe has imperfections that are uncomfortable when I walk (only on 1 of them) I have 6 pairs of es accel slims so I know what to expect from them. I've been buying es shoes since back in the day (1999), but customer service is not what it used to be......

Lightweight and look good. winter here so i don't want to take them outside yet so i can't speak to skateability, but the reputation probably says enough. not too padded but feels secure and protecting. good heel. i wear wide shoes so these are a little tight for my taste, but if i remember correctly, not as tight as a pair of Busenitz's Adidas that i had a few years ago.

The Accel Slim for me runs a 1/2 small, skates great for a few weeks of heavy skating then they’re done. Thin soles and insoles isn’t a good match hence the four stars. Also too many colorways for one shoe

Extremely pleased with the accel slim. This is my first pair of es shoes since the relaunch and was not disappointed. I got the black and white color way. It skates great and is very durable. I Didn’t start to see wear beyond the threads on the outsole For several sessions. The break in for these was minimal for a cupsole. I definitely recommend this shoe for anyone who wants a low profile cupsole with a classic silhouette. Just go ahead and buy a pair.

The shoes perform great and broken faster than anyotje i had. The only improvment that needs to be made is the soles wear through way too fast especially at the balls of the feet, for me its the left shoe. This is a common problem with most Sole Technologies footwear .

Tyler 2/25/19 Northwest originally Midwest

Great shoes that keep a good balance of function and look. Slimmed down enough not to be an eyesore but still provide support and protection; for skating or just everyday on-your-feet life. I really like Sole Tech's cupsole choices; the Accel, the Etnies Jameson SL&XT have been my favorites(much love for Emerica too,but it's been awhile since I've owned any). The stock insoles are fine but not as nice as STI Energy foam or PU insoles. I think the all black colorway w/ gum sole hidden underneath is classic and hopefully will remain in the lineup indefinitely. An all black mid-top Accel would be nice to see, or maybe an all black with brass eyelet and just a little bit of gum showing up around the bottom edge of a black outsole! Alright, I'll quit playing designer and return to my roll as Sole Tech fan. -Thank yall for consistently providing the goods-

Jnutz 12/23/18 PA

I dont have anything bad to say about this shoe if I don't know what shoes I want to skate next I usually just go with this one it fits true to size the suede is super comfortable and durable they look slim fitting and narrow but I think that just due to the longer toebox, I can skate these everyday for about a month and half(old man skating). These are great for flat ground and small ledges if you want to take these to gaps,stairs or handrails I suggest a thicker insole because the missile is quite slim.

Javi 12/22/18 California

I've been on & off with skateboarding for the past few years. Decided to take it more seriously recently & needed a shoe with good support. I wore the OG Accel's back in 2001 so I wanted to try the slim verison. I love that they have soo many colorways. My feet don't fatigue nearly as quickly as some vulcs I've had before. I normally wear 8.5 so that's what I ordered. Seems true to size. I don't put a ton of hours a week but the suede is holding up very well so far. The sole grips my Mob grip really well too. All in all, I could easily see myself buying these over & over as my go-to skate shoe.

Stee Peep 11/21/18 Maine / NH

GREAT SHOES. **Requires assistance for durability** Pro tip: use "gorilla glue gel" to add a layer of protection on all the stitching around the toe box/flick spots, also as needed on bottom laces. This makes the shoes last a solid month, looking good. I always skate em till I poke through the bottom. Not bad for $50-70 depending on colorway. Accel Slims rule.

I've skated these for 9 days and a hole has already formed. The suede is flapping off, but thats it. It's a really great and beautiful shoe, but it just falls apart after a few hours of practicing kickflips. 9 days is really bad compared to all the shoe reviews I've watched of the dude skating the shoes for a month and there was no hole. Really disappointed.

My son ordered a pair in a size too small, which my daughter kept. We then placed an order in the correct size for him. The shoes are very stylish for each, but my son skateboards (my daughter doesn't) and he's already almost worn them out. (Hers look great!) It's been 5 days. Is there anything else he might try that would be more durable? He uses shoe goo, then duck tape, but nothing seems to last because he skates so much. Thanks!

Encourage Skateboarding 10/18/18 Houston, Tx

These are absolutely the best shoes ever. I think they were broken in literally by trying them on and walking around the bedroom. I have both the Arctic Blue and the Off White w/black soles and I'm getting the Dusty Pinks and Light Blue ones next. The sole is thin enough to provide proper boardfeel and yet padded enough to keep my heels from getting bruised. Super light weight, no excess bulky material. Never has a shoe had everything that you need and nothing that you don't. I've also never had a shoe run so true to size before, and I've worn almost every shoe out there. I really like the elastic bands that hold the tongue in place, it makes the shoe that much more comfortable. I wore this one particular brand of shoes for years because I thought it's what real skaters did; then I found out that brand is owned by a goofy magazine that couldn't possibly care about skateboarding. If the owners of a company don't use the product that they own, what makes you think that they care about it? I've made the switch, I couldn't be happier, I'm supporting skateboarding 100%, I'm just sorry I took so long getting here. Stay strong, be blessed. Encourage Skateboarding

What can be said about a white shoe that a white shoe doesn't already say for its self? Classic. Sleek. Sexy. Its sensuality oozes from every pour. The clean silhouette of the Accel slim just adds robust curves to already classic color way that has seduced the likes of Marc J. and Heath Kirchart. Wade D. would be the man with the wood to tame these lil minxs and call them his own.

Who doesn't love cookies n cream? Ice cream, Iced Frap or as an Oreo cookie with icing flavored to taste like Oreo. There's nothing better than cookies n cream! What I really want to know is who is the genius that decided to slap an Oreo against a pair of Accel Slims?? Genius. This color way is delectable. I haven't skated these sweet treats yet but am sure they will be scrumptious.

I love eS shoes. Have for over 15 years. This was the first time I found a size inconsistency between shoes. I bought some Accel (regulars) last year, size 12, and they fit like every other eS shoe I've purchased. However, these Accel Slims were small and didn't fit well at all. I checked the size and the tongue said 12. There were also no 12.5's offered for me to replace and try to compare. My only suggestion would be to make sure sizes are consistent across all shoes.

I am 84 years old, but young at heart, and ride my bicycle about 6 miles every day. I love my Accel Slim ES skate shoe and find it very comfortable. I guess you would say that I have a wide foot, so I did find that while my usual shoe size is a 10, with this "Slim" shoe, size 11 fit me perfectly. I like it that this shoe seems to be well ventilated and is comfortable even in our hot summer days of 90 degrees. Thank you ES for a great appearing, very comfortable shoe. By the way, your customer service is great!

Myles 5/22/18 Indiana

Oh snap, a review on shoes. At first I was triggered and hated these, they felt as stiff as a stick, and I was not having it. Went to a clothing store to try on different skate shoes, and the Nike SB felt tight, the vans old skool were nice though. But I told myself, I should try these out first, they look AMAZING, but after a few days of wearing these I love them. Stiff at first but once broken in, they are the most comfortable shoe I own, they don't hurt my feet and they don't feel like they're going to fall off, the tongue stay is a REALLY nice feature, after wearing converse for like 10 years, that feature is like a dream come true. So for an honest review, if you're scared to get skate shoes, don't fear here, break them in by walking and then skate on them because you will get the most comfort out of tbem. 5/5 10/10 best shoes, not triggered anymore.

I absolutely LOVE these shoes. Thank you so much for bringing eS shoes back. I wore the Accel's back in the day and they were my favorite skate shoe. Once I saw you brought it back as a slim, I knew I had to get it. Admittedly, I have not skated them yet. They are too nice to mess up! I would buy more in a heartbeat.

Emericaridr11 2/17/18 Denver, CO

I gave this shoe 2 stars, and let me tell you why.... I am a HUGE fan of eS and was jumping for joy when they came back, well I jumped too early eS needs to work on a lot of stuff (heres my personal opinions, remembering I was skating in the 2000's fat shoe era so im picky as heck)_______________ - FIRST IMPRESSION (3 stars): amazing looking on website, just like the OGs which are my standard for good shoes (granted they are too thick)... not so much at the store, very very clown looking and it is because the shoe laces do not come down as far as the OG version making your toe look more like a point and less round (which sucks for us 2000 heads)________________________ - FEEL (2 stars): felt "good" but not great like the OGs did, I wear a size 9 and I felt like I needed a 9.5 to fit comfy. That was a mistake, my feet look like clown feet, the worst!! But the fit out of the box was OK, I did get a toe pinch when I bend my toes since I got a half size too big________________ - CONSTRUCTION (2 stars): the suede is chill, love the classy accel layout (cant be beat ever) HOWEVER..... the sole on these shoes are BY FAR some of the worst soles Ive ever skated or walked in. They use "Egg Crate Midsole" so after my first walking around in them I felt this very uncomfy waffle pattern on my heels, unskatable, unwearable egg crate crud.... honestly the worst skate shoes from eS Ive ever tried, holy moly did these turn into paper like vans did_________________ - OVERALL (2 stars): I would NEVER reccomend this shoe to any Real Skater, the Egg Crate Midsole is a deal breaker and the durability is also to be of concern (unless you like skating in paper soles then rock on just hope you dont bust through that cheap STI Insole and feel that nasty Egg Crate Midsole on your heels like I did)....... I will never buy a pair of eS Accel Slims again, and its looking like thats what they are mostly pushing_____________________ looks like Emerica is dropping some slick looking Cupsoles (Emerica Dissent) that might need to replace these AWFUL Shoes, also just go get some Reynolds G6's (little tight on my toe but dang dang good shoes there) or stick to the OGs even though they are WAY too bulky even for me haha______________________ PS: sorry I tried to paragraph my review but it blocked it all into one paragraph

These shoes, as any skater would expect, should be given a Five Star rating. Their simplicity and reinvigorated durability is absolutely top-notch, HOWEVER, there has been a serious failure on attention to detail by our friends at Sole Technology Inc. They don't include extra shoe laces and regardless of the petty nature of the complaint, as a skateboarder of some 15 years, backup shoe laces are 100% fundamental. Especially if the shoe doesn't have lace protection! On top of that, the laces that are provided are below average in terms of durability, they are thinner than your average skate show lace and unless your rubbing Shoegoo all over your brand new Accel's, you'll be in need of new laces within five sessions of skating the shoes. Other than that, love the shoes, they got good feel and the new slimmed down structure is a work of art. Just be ready to make a separate shoe lace purchase if you plan on rocking these beauties. ^HEY SOLE TECHNOLOGY INC., check out this review and start hooking up your shoe boxes with some extra laces, never know when you're gonna shred through a lace or need a backup belt for the skinny brothas out there. And hook me up with a couple pairs of laces while you're at it!!

They've lasted me maybe a month and a half in the past and a couple weeks after that if you really beat them down. Comfortable out of the box, nice board feel, no complaints here.

The es Accels are the best skate shoe of all time. They are comfy yet supportive. The rim gives you perfect grip for kickflip flicking as well as a great heel. They are also just a great casual shoe to wear, especially with all of the different options available now. I've had these shoes 7 or 8 times now across my life, starting with the all black ones when I was around 8 years old. I learned how to ollie in these shoes. Something that doesn't get as much praise is the tongue, which is really pillowy and nice to have on the top of your foot.

éS products have long been my favorite. When they went out of production, I was heartbroken. Now they’re back with the classic shoes we loved with awesome new features.

This is the perfect cupsole shoe. This classic shoe has be reimagined to adapt to modern times. The toe has stretched out to prevent shoe lace breaks. The sole of the shoe has been slimed down for a better board feel but still thick enough to protect your feet. I use to skate the original accels in 2007 when I started skateboarding I loved them for the shape of the toe I really enjoy the way a kick flip feels in this shoe. You will not be disappointed.

reynolds9000 1/17/18 Alabama

First pair of e'S since the "hiatus". I gave up on Sole Tech because quality was really bad for that last few years, but e'S seems to hold themselves to a much higher standard than Emerica. I bought 2 pairs of the Accel Slims and do not regret it. I haven't skated them yet, but my initial impression is that they are very well made. Stitch lines are quality, fit is true to size (i wear 10.5 in Adidas, i bought 10.5 Accel's and they fit snug which is just how i like them). Cushioning seems to be adequate, they are very comfortable! Considering i have only skated vulc shoes for the last few years, these feel similar to a vulc shoe straight out of the box. I don't anticipate any break in time. Probably going to scoop another pair just because i'm that impressed with them.

Real 12/21/17 Long Beach

The only issue I found was that one of the insoles layers was separated upon arrival when I opened the box. It felt a little uncomfortable because when sliding my foot into the shoe the insole graphic layer would roll up and there would be lumps along the bottom of my foot and the inside of the shoe. I kind of wish that I ordered some of the sti energy insoles you guys offer and replaced the insoles you provide for the shoe. Kelly Hart is the man though and the graphic is dope so I’m hyped for him but yeah besides the uncomfortability of the insoles the shoes skate great! I wish I would’ve realized 2 days after I purchased this shoe was going to go on the 2 for 1 deal because I could skate multiples of the shoes. Don Brown is rad too and let me get some OG white Accels when I was at SoleTech because I was wearing beat up NB skate shoes and he told me to get rid of the Grandpa sneaks haha. Best dude!

Stop shopping big name brands because you think they are “better” get real skateboarding shoes, made by real skateboarders. You guys really think the CEO at Nike can kickflip?

andyberude 9/22/17 San Francisco, CA

These are one of my all time favorite shoes. The Accel Slim is just right looks wise. Sizing is a bit short though. I wear a 12 in most shoe brands but these get real narrow right at the start of the vamp. The material under the suede crimped at a couple bend spots and dig into my pinkie and big toes. It's a bummer cause I can't wear them because of it. For the first 10 minutes they were just a little snug and were glorious. Then the material crimped permanently and digs into my toes. Ever since it's been almost unbearably uncomfortable. I muscle through it sometimes because they look so good. I even bought another pair in a different color to see if maybe I got a defective model or a fluke crimp but it's the same on the second pair. My god are these beautiful though. Maybe a 12.5 would work but that's not an option and historically for me, 13s are too big. Oh well. I guess if your foot is wide and you're a 12, you may have to skip this model unfortunately.
