Very good shoe, saved my ankles from getting hurt as well as being comfy and stylish. I do wish that they would make an all black version of this shoe though.

The best skate shoe (all-round comfy kickit shoe) I've owned to date! Straight out of the box, the insoles are ultra comfortable, while the mid provides the necessary ankle support I need. Almost a month later, left sole shows minimal wear compared to other skate shoes I've owned. Stoked to wear n ride. Thanks, ES!

Love the brand. Always makes great shoes that look awesome. A little disappointed with the accel slim models, has the look of the èS Square One but does not live up to its quality and overall feel. Still an awesome shoe.

First off, éS skateboarding has been around for a long time and they've been making some of the best skate shoes since they started. The mid-top on the shoes is perfect. It is just high enough to protect your ankle from getting smoked by your board but as a good balance between the shoes hugging your feet and being a little loose around the ankle for good mobility for all my flip tricks. Also, the flick on these shoes is phenomenal. I’m talking super suede!! I do wish that the insole and the midsole on the shoes was a little thicker but that's because I am a big guy and I habitually stomp all my tricks For no reason! It's a real problem in my life, but éS sells an upgraded insole that works great. I would recommend the shoes to anybody.

I like the look of these shoes. More importantly, as a taller guy it’s hard to get jeans long enough to cover my ankles. Normally I wouldn’t care but road rash on the ankles and getting hit with a board on that bones is rough! I only wish the soles absorbed a little more impact. Other than that impact, great shoes. I’m on my second pair now.

THE BEST SKATE SHOE EVER. They are perfect because they cover your ankles but they dont limit you like other high-tops do. I skate pretty hard, at least 5 times a week. Other skate shoes I wear (Lakai, Nike SB, and Vans) and get holes in them in about a month. These shoes lasted me 8 months and they are just now starting to lose their grip. Totally worth the extra money.

Seriously the best shoe i ever skated. Ready out the box no need to break these bad boys in! The comfort and durability is unmatched and for this price you can buy two pairs and have great shoes that will last you a longer time then the so called competition. This shoe has changed skateboarding for me forever! I want the Tom Asta Mids Back , basically the same shoe as far as design and comfort but the Asta color way was amazing!

Jacob 7/5/19 Australia

If there was a 10 star option I'd give it! These shoes are awesome! Comfy and awesome for flip tricks, mid cut shoes but has a low cut feel because the ankle part is like a sock but gives support. Feels awesome to stand on the board and they've got a really good board feel, they're lasting well also, they still look new and I've had a few skates in them

Nicolette 5/22/19 Philly

This is the best shoe I've ever skated in. Super comfy and protects your ankles without being too bulky or stiff. Also, Im a girl and this is a mens shoe - if youre a girl, you know the problems of finding good skate shoes that fit right. I've been skating for 18 years, and you can guarantee I'll never skate in any other shoe. 'es should sponsor me - thanks :D

Emericaridr11 12/22/18 Denver, CO

Great looking shoe, the Tom Asta White Mids are so clean and good looking that I swear I can do flip tricks cleaner (or maybe I just feel "cooler").... but the shoe does not run true to size, I ordered a 9 and it for sure feels more like a 10... I put my thick footprints in them (finally a use for these stupid big footprint insoles) but it just doesnt feel right.... the shoe is either way to floppy and toe'sy or just slightly off feeling with FP insoles..... AMAZING LOOK, egg crate midsole with no "even weight distribution" is super uncomfortable on my heels though... Get rid of the egg crate midsole or at least add some layer on top so it doesnt blast right trough the crummy stock insoles (or ship them with the better sti insoles?)

Great Shoe. In general ES has been killing it for years and i just recently tried a pair of these for the first time, over the years i have tried all the different brands and ill tell you what STICK TO BRANDS THAT ONLY MAKE SKATE SHOES. These a ready out the box and still intact after heavy duty shreddage for the last two months. Just got another pair. Highly Recomended.

Donald 7/24/18 Napa, CA

Definitely a durable skate shoe. Holding up really nicely after a month of heavy skating. Comfortable too, although I immediately swapped out the insoles for some FP insoles. This was problematic. The stock insole may have been just fine, but when I took them out, I found the glued portion of the insole wasn’t removed easily, and fragments of the glue and insole remained. I then found out the shoes were too snug with the new insoles, and the stock ones were ruined during extraction. I put in some cheaper, and thinner, insoles. After a couple of weeks I noticed the shoe had stretched out some, and were then able to accommodate the high quality FP insole. So, if they feel a little tight at first, they do get broken in after a short amount of time. Overall great shoe. Big fan.

I remember falling in love w/ Nike SB 6.0, which instantly became my favorite shoe..but shortly after they got discountinued. Ever since I couldn’t find anything like it, until éS..these shoes are comfortable, durable, stylish, and everything you could ask for. Glad to say éS brought back the nostalgia, and I highly doubt there’s anything better out there..

Og skateboard company 3/11/18 Florida

This show is no exception to the comfort and durability ice grown to love about es.However this show has so many possibilities for style variations. For instance to add the air woke from the Koston 1s or the creager and call them the accel slim mid 1.5 . Or even if it is possible to mimick the heel from the axion Kareem or Kahali would be dope for all. Accel slims and call them the accel slim trainer. I recommend this because I have gnarly heel bruises and the sol technology implemented by es is one of the reasons I've always been happy with your products.

Comfy and a bit more protected from ankle biters and cold mfs. The accel design is still one of the best designs in skateboarding, and this is a great take on them. Haven't skated them yet, looking forward to it.

Hanbo 12/1/17 Chicago

Comfortable. Flexible. Thin enough for board feel yet durable. Mids have good ankle and heel support. Personally, I should have got a half size smaller shoe than what I got. A little too much toe space than other shoes I own in this size. Not noticable trying on the shoes and walking around, but a little too much excess for flip tricks when skating. More of a trial and error on my part. I used to skate the OG accel back in the day but those were very padded. Haven't bought skate shoes for several years and wanted to try these first. I've already ordered 2 more pairs of es shoes (another mid slim accel, and swift 1.5). I find the style, quality, durability, and comfort meeting my high expectations for these shoes. Only complaint is interior heel logo rubs off in less than a day. Not that that matters. But, if you skate stairs or anything with very hard landings, you should consider adding insoles for these.
