All excellent Thanks!!
éS was created in 1995 to advance skate comfort, style and function to new levels. The ACCEL Slim is a modern day version of the ACCEL OG with less bulk, increased board feel, and as all éS shoes ..style for miles
- Advanced Cupsole Construction Provides excellent Durability, Boardfeel, and Grip to increase Ollie Control
- STI Insoles for Supreme Comfort, Durability & Grip
- Premium Quality Suede Upper for Longevity and Style
- Perforated Side Panel for foot Ventilation and fresh style
- Iconic éS branding on Tongue, Heel, Insole & Lower Center Lace loop
The Skate Rat is a nice, high quality release of the Accel Slim. Lovely packaging and details, but otherwise a regular Accel Slim of course. Good for people with regular and narrow width feet, not recommended for people with wider feet.
Stoked! Love es shoes a plenty! These are beautiful, thats why I bought two pairs! Although.. got sent an Emerica sticker in the box, not to diss them, but I was hoping for some es stickers! ..any chance ya can post some out?! Love the es, Menikmati was my first ever skate video :)
Beautiful shoes. Love the carry bag. ES should do more collectable sneakers. Please re issue the viagras i would love a pair 🤣🤣🍆🍆🍆
Street dreams are made of this. The OG silhouette of the realest skate shoe just got better.
Prefect skate shoe for me (other than the Accelerate!). They aren't the longest lasting shoe, but I'm happy with that. I don't want to be looking down at the same shoe for months and months when I'm out skating. Good flex, good board feel, good fit. I think I've had about 10 pairs since eS cam back from hiatus. Will continue to buy them, unless they bring back the Accelerate (c'mon eS! ;) )
i bought these like 2 months ago and i love them its a great shoe with great durability and lacks of style es is the best shoe brand out there please sponser me XD
Excellent skate shoes
These shoes will help you ollie over stray cats and capture the imagination of a nation
Skater these for 3 years straight best shoe ever... the all leather black and red last 10x longer than all of them
I have had these for 2 weeks and I love them. They are very versatile and skate well, as long as you get the rubber version. The stitching around the toe has not blown out yet and that was something I was concerned about. Overall these shoes are great and would definitely buy them again.
Accel slims are the bomb. Always have been, always will be
The steeziest shoes, break’em in - in just 10 min of skating. The black on black goes well with any outfit.
I Like this Shoe so much. Perfect Fits on my Feed. Thanks.
Love the styling. It's subtile enough end i don't feel like a banner for a brand.
Excellent skate shoe
The color is so sick!
A winterized version of the Accel Slim. Not sure how well it will do in wet conditions but it sure is warm. Sadly, none of the Accel Slim models are wide foot friendly.
Excellent to skate in
Absolutely insane shoes, comfortable as hell, good resistance to abrasion. 10/10 would buy again
Only had them a couple of months, so far great. Bought them to replace another pair that lasted about 5 years of mountain biking. Previous shoes were bombproof and I’m hoping these will fare just as well.
Excellent skate shoe
I bought my first pair of ES shoes back in 1998, white, yellow and blue Koston. As usual I bought a size 12,and I've bought size 12 ES shoes many times since, and they have always fit great. Not so for the pair of size 12 Accel Slims I ordered online, and received today. The shoe looks great, and quality seems good, but the ones I received must have been the smallest size 12 I've experienced to date. It felt more like a size 11, or even a 10,5. Beware, and be ready to order a size larger than you normally would. I'm going to have to return mine, and see if they have another model that is closer to the size it should be... 😭
excellent shoe, excellent company. have been buying es trainers since they started, always the most stylish. It did used to be better when they gave you an extra pair of laces though, usually in a complimenting colour
Fucking love them! Almost want another pair!
The accel slim was already one of my favorites, this edition brought it to a higher level. The details on the shoe, and the linnen shoe bag that comes with it are amazing. What remains is the switch 360flip, haha!
Best colorway for the best shoe!
best fckn shoe for shreddin
super comfy skate shoes, the build quality is top notch, and pretty cool looking as well.
Perfect board feel and sytlish shoe. But I would have prefered them to last a little longer.
Dope shoe. Awesome looking and feeling (broke in in couple hours). But for an almost 100€ shoe, a second pair of laces is mandatory. 4 stars.
Everything is perfect, flawless, I'm very pleased with the shoes. THX
With the new memory foam insoles these are the best shoes I've skated in the last 8 years. I refuse to skate anything else right now. éS Footwear is what I started with, and will always be the shoes I skate. Much love
Awesome shoe. Amazing color. Thanks nine club for showing it
Please don’t stop making these. Would also LOVE to own a pair of the Accel Slim in a mid to solid brown like the old Lakai shoes of that helps. Gum sole .
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
Love the sneakers, But I've ordered 4 PAIRS NOW & NO STICKERS?! WHERE ARE ALLL THE STICKERS?!
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.
Love the yellow. My fav shoe i have so many colors. You used to send out a second pair of shoe laces a different color back then but other than been brand loyal for 15 years
Can’t go wrong with some Accels
Amazing!! Not too bulky not too slim. Fits just right. Looks hella fresh with denims or pants. Not skating these ones but will be ordering more to skate
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.
Love these shoes! Super comfortable, not too heavy, not too light...great traction!
They were flight great board feel and the new insole is beast
Can’t go wrong with the classics! Solid flick and good grip. Love these.
Nothing much more to say than.. these are the best shoes ever in life.. for skateboarding and just to rock
Not much else to say than... these are the best shoes ever in life... for skateboarding and just to rock
These shoes are great shoes, very little wear and tear and it's been just a month and makes feeling tricks a lot easier great buy!!!
These shoes look great, feel great and seem to be holding up to my skating. They were true to size.
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.
These shoes fucking slap I skate in these shits and I’m like oh my god those are some fucking sick ass shoes yo like god damn pull my dick and call me Michael these shoes are sick as fuck
Came quickly and as always great for skating!
Great take on the classic. love them durable and true to size!
Comfy and stylish!
Best skate kicks I’ve skated
So nice to have a pair again !! Thanks guys!
Shoe is great but the insole is a thin sheet. I can feel the midsole construction threads.
Great shoes. Perfect for skating. Definitely recommend wearing on the feet.
I really love these shoes and I'll definitely buy more in the future. The leather is tough but I still have the board feel that I love.
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
Fits perfect and preform wonderful for downhill skating!
Love the shoes!! Keep it up fam!!
Love the ES shoes since I was a kid and skated all the time.
Super comfy, love the custom foot pads
Amazing shoes. I have bought 9 pairs in the last three months and none of them dissapoint.
Es makes the best shoes ever.... the accel slim is by far the most comfortable and skateable shoe on the planet
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.
The best shoes from a real skateboard co. I couldn't ask for more. The quality of the brand and commitment to skateboarding speaks louder than the rest. Thank you!!
They make me wanna bust fat kickflips all day
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.
I've always skated Accel OGs but this was my first pair of slims and after about a month of skating them I'm in love I'll never skate another shoe as long as 'eS continues to make these
These are 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%
The go to for keeping the feet comfy and ready to go. Don’t sleep on these, and snag a pair from a local shop or from the homies at STI
Cozy fit and great insole tech. The suede finish plus its color deems this shoe as both for formal and informal occasions.
This shoe is literally the best skate shoe ever made... the accel o.g. is classic.. but the slim is the perfected version. Simple, clean, effective, 100% Style
Love them there just like the throw back I used to have the accels
Best skate shoe ever
Best skate shoes to date!!!
I rode éS for the longest time, but had to switch up for a while. Back on the éS train and fuuuuck did I miss em! Best shoes ever!
Thanks, these were the replacement for the ones you guys didn’t have. You guys are the best
These shoes are great. I’m so glad they are still making some in size 6
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. I was super excited to get my hands on these limited edition chinese new year skate shoes, and can confirm that they are easily the sweetest shoes on the market. Also considering it was an overseas delivery, they came very fast and in perfect condition.
I want a black and gold with gum. Or blue and gum. Kien lieu shoes are sick!
New insoles were a much needed update to the accel slim. They feel great, and you still get that awesome flick and skate-ability that the accel slims have always had with added protection. I'm hard pressed to try another pair of shoes. These are my 4th in a row!
Love anything és, éspecially the Accel Slim's. Keep killing it 💪
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.
This shoe is too damn fresh!!!
Very good shoes for a really low price. You’re going to go through shoe laces, but the shoe itself is strong. I’m been trying to destroy mine for days
best shoes in the game cant wait to get me more
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......
Best skate shoe! Only shoe I wear to skate. I have a pair to skate in and two pairs to rock and not skate in. Lots of clean color ways.
Forced my 12yo son to go OG with these because his heels were sore wearing Nike SBs. Shoes are going strong with over 30 sessions primarily street, stairs loading docks etc. much better then Van and SBs . These will make a come back. They are his go to and will be a staple from hear on out .
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.
They feel really good on my feet and I got the shoes no problem best skating shoes ever
Still one of the best skate shoes ever.
Loves this shoe have a couple pair. This one actually fit good on side compared to the rest no brake in time. fit good out the box
I have a couple pair love them just a little snug on the sides till they brake in
Love the shoes just a little snug on the sides.
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
Son loves his es sneakers bought 2 pair . They last better then his other skate shoes. And are very comfortable
Shoes fit great, comfortable, easy to order, were delivered on time. Great overall experience.
I love my new shoes. I ordered these shoes for myself as a Christmas present. I can wait to learn to skateboard with them. I would definitely be ordering a new pair of the shoe next Christmas.
These shoes are great for skateboarding and are so comfortable.
Great shoe! Comfortable and stylish.
I'd totally recommend és to someone that hasn't tried them.
Great skate shoe if you like that slim light style. Hold-up well to abuse. Style can’t be beat.
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.
Love the Es acel slims been buying the same shoes for the past year and don’t plan on changing
Love this shoe! Classic skate shoe!
I got these for my grandson. He loves them. Perfect fit. Great style and colors
Poor quality material on front of shoe, when i got the shoe the front was not flat it looked stretched out and after wearing them in one day got major wrinkles. Don't think i will wear them to chill out.
As always killer shoes. The only thing is that the top eyelets and the tongue liner were baby blue and not grey as pictured.
I haven't skated es in a while and I loved the accel back then and I love these ones today. Great shoe. Stays together. And last long.
simply the best skate shoe. they break in fast and they say they’re slim but i have wide feet and they fit great. they are great for board control and you don’t feel like you’re on stilts like some other shoes like the swift 1.5.
Just got my olive accel slim and it’s not the same as in the picture. Has baby blue eyelet and tounge accent. It’s ok but not the grey that’s in the picture.
Used to skate janoski suedes FOREVER until nike started being weak and stopped using leather laces. These shoes are phenominal. They break in quick and have lasted me long as hell. ONLY gripe I have would be that the laces ripped twice but that's super minor. 5/5 shoes
These shoes look awesome but provided no support at all for my feet. My shins hurt and couldn’t even walk. The soles had no support and my toes were pinched. I returned them like I returned the other pair I bought and was so disappointed because I love all black skate shoes. I owed pairs on high school and hoped these would be comfy but they were nothing like I wished .
I wish I could get some of these color ways in the Accel OGs!!
Stylish, functional, and comfortable. One of the pinnacles of this brand. I love them and would recommend.
If you don’t buy these shoes, you’re a poser.
Super great tech shoe! True to size.5/5
éS shoes are simply the best. Had pairs and pairs of them and they always outlast shoes I've purchased from other brands. And that style! Can't recommend them enough.
This og shoe will never go out of style. It’s been over 12 years since I owned a pair of accel. The original shoes was comfortable and simple, just the way I like. These new skins are way better and I’m proud to own a pair.
Awesome fit. feels perfect on the board.
I hope these shoes will still be available for times to come since I can't wear every type of shoe ever since I broke my toes, lol.
A prominent Maroon/Grey upper that reminds me of game day at Carolina Gamecocks game. I don't watch college football but damn do these shoes fit the state I live in perfectly.
These shoes are made of the best materials ! So nice you don’t even want to wear them ! Don brown is the man and a legend !!!
It feels comfy and looks amazing 😉 very satisfied
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 .
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-
The best shoes ever!
There great love the Es accels
A really great shoe
These shoes fit my feet true to size and were very comfortable. I have a good feeling they're gonna do well skating but we'll see once my other pairs of shoes wear out.
These shoes is hella comfortable and fashionable. Good for skating too. Just make 3 pairs of them
Some of the best shoes I’ve skated. Great board feel with these! Skater owned skater operated. Everything you want in a skate shoe and a brand.
Top of the line product, I rather the OG’s but these all pretty good shoes and I look forward to get another pair of these for sure!
Some of the cleanest shoes in the game! So comfortable too! I love em!
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.
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.
Honestly one of the best shoes I've ever worn. I don't skate anymore unfortunately, but I wear these shoes for straight up comfort. Keep making shoes és
I've had multiple versions and they skate great. The ones with leather navy/tan/white did not convince me. The leather breaks pretty quickly while walking only. Go for the suede or weatherized types, they are great!
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.
Great skate shoes. No nonsense. Repeat purchase.
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!
Comfortable and very good for skating
Accel slims are the shit
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
very easy to break-in the shoes, comfortable fit. these are very good shoes. the high price is worth it especially when being ordered from canada (wade desarmo pro model)
Love the shoes they look very nice and comfy!!
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.
Great shoes, bought them for my gf, she is happy with them too 😃
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!
Accel-ent shoe. Good support and durability.
This shoe looks really nice. I encourage anyone who likes this shade to buy. Very good looking shoe.
Ordered a pair of accel slim and package got sent back and were very fast to respond with the issue and sent them out right away and I now have them and are great shoes ! Reminds me of when I first started skating !
Huge Accel and Wade Desarmo fan
Accels have always been one of my favourite shoes. Bring back the all black Accel Plus again, then I’d never wear another shoe again.
These shows have held up crazy well for how much I've been skating recently. 8 hours a week or so for the past 3 weeks. Excellent quality.
These are so sick.... if you made far enough to read this, you might as well buy a pair or two
I have been absent for almost a decade I think. I´ve owned many Accel OGs in my active years and I am delighted that I have chosen a brand new model again. That is just my kind of shoe, perfect for my feet, stylish and I cannot think of a better summer shoe for me right now. Long live éS!
The colorway alone is the best thing I’ve ever seen. On top of it being the accel slim makes it perfect. I have a wide foot which makes this shoe fit perfect. With boardfeel and also the help from the Cupsole it truely is perfect
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 play indoor airsoft in them. They grip the floor really well. I'd buy a second pair if you made an olive drab or ranger green model.
greate service, greate products. keep pushin'
I let wade know i bought his shoe Shoe looks amazing in white suede Toe cap seems different then original accels Amazing 🤗
These shoes are nice for comfort also with great board feels. I can go for stairs and gaps right to ledges and flip tricks. To me these are a hybrid shoe, they’re in between lots of support and also, like I said earlier board feel. These are my goto skate shoe! Thanks ‘es
Those shoes are incredible. When i skated for the first days, my flip tricks were perfect but durability on the gum is not much durable that i expected
These shoes will make you have the dankest heelflip in the game, son.
These are 7th pair of accel slims and with the energy+ insoles they make my skating and style so fun
Has comfort with ankle support and also a lot of board feel. I loved these, I just bout another pair thanks guys!
These shoes fit perfect and are holding up nicely. Will definitely be buying es again!
I have bought multiple pairs of these because I am so happy with the performance. They are durable , comfortable,yet protective without being too bulky. Everything you could ask for in the accel og with a little more board feel.
Very comfortable and durable skate shoe, probably the best colourway, looks so fresh!!!
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. Please continue releasing new colorways of this show. I am trying to get my hands on, well feet on the red Accel slims size 11 if you can help me!! I am a loyal customer for life!!!!!
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
The best shoe ever Thank god es is back All them other skate shoes suck
super comfy should put straps for tong on all shoes
Don Brown, Thats all you need to know.
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!!
My favourite shoes in a new great colourway....all white and gum, achtung baby! :)
Got them on a 1/2 off sale I'm not sure of the difference from the first pair I got which were black and red with the gold logo (I think the accel slim tres) but I love the way these skate. 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.
These are my first pair of es shoes and I'm sold. They fit great and look even better.
