Yo, what kicks you skating, Koston?

Posted March 21, 2005 by éS

This weekend at Kostons private warehouse, Bobby Worrest showed up and threw down some amazing tech skills. The session was a heated one. The one thing we noticed is that most of the dudes there were wearing the Accelerate. Any of you try this shoe yet? What do you think? Koston said he liked the feel, and the full gel made a difference. Like, Whoa!

  1. this colour combination is bad. black/white is very good, but colour variance beside this text :_)

  2. I hate the blue sole, disguststing! The other colourways are good though. És need to move away from the Accels, it's obviously the only decent shoe they've ever made that still sells, all there new stuff is rip offs or to tech, get some new designers!

  9. They look nice, but not in that colorway.

    Joe Posted: 10 years ago
  10. I like that colorway the best. Don't worry the all black will be out soon.

    Josh P. Posted: 10 years ago
  11. The accelerates are sick shoes for kickin it in, i think they are to heavy to skate in, the brown and white ones are the sickest i think the normal accels are the ones to skate in. you guys shouldnt hate on sean, hes allowed to voice his opinion too, just because it isnt the same as yours you shouldnt call him names and shit

    adam Posted: 10 years ago
  12. my friend micah, he got them shoes and in two weeks both shoes blew out. the gel was blown out. this happened after he skated the double in fort smith indoor park. bad ass park. you can press on the outsole and its easy to push in. he still likes the shoe but theres no protection anymore. he'll buy more cus the full impact g2 helped him.

    Ted Posted: 10 years ago
  13. i have the black and white accelerates. its alright i guess. my favorite shoe. the protection is ok. i dont get heel bruises which is good. the shoe is awesome. lacing it like footballs make it look ugly.

    Ted Posted: 10 years ago
  14. clear soles are terrible, they look so weak and bad, the accelerates look sweet in the other colours though

    Tim Posted: 10 years ago
  15. Sean can say what he likes. We are down to hear the good and the bad. The Accel will never leave the line. In fact we improved the toe box and the mold so it's going to be even better. Cale loves the Accelerate to. We just got lunch and he was wearing them and talking about how good they are. He also blows them out mad quick but then again the dude is dropping off mad high shit.

    We got some new goodies in the mix coming out that will get you stoked...don't you worry. We are shaking shit up here at éS. I just grabbed a pair of accelerates cause I never skated them yet so I'll let you know what I think...even though I can only do 9 tricks...hahahaha. Man I'm old.

    Ok back to biz. Some of you aren't feeling the clear soles huh? Is it just pure looks or did you try them out

    craig Posted: 10 years ago
  16. ok I think the clear soles are alright I'd sport 'em I want 'em bad though. the ones pj wears in th Ad are cool I think I'll get those ones.And the disighners are sick the tech shoes are cool they don't make them look all spaced out, so its cool. They should get some full impact G2 but the shoes should be light and have the heel crach pad like the Contracts' and don't rip like EK-01s' . And still look preety cool Oh and 4 sure they have to say eS on the Tounge.

    Paul Rosales Posted: 10 years ago
  17. the blue sole isnt bad id wear them for sure. right now my friend has the brown and white accelerates and he loves em but i got my eye on the accel plus because i can get them cheaper and whats not to like? accel + g2 + strap = the money. but i know i will eventually get some accelerates too. im ridin the contracts right now and they are good cause their light and have good flick.

    clay Posted: 10 years ago
  18. You guys put an ankle strap on the accelerate and you will have the perfect shoe, eS Accelerate brown/tan are probably my next shoes.

    Jacob Posted: 10 years ago
  19. The accelerate's are butter, and of course they are gonna blow out fast if you skate at least five hours a day everyday.es keep doing what your doing..because you guys are true to the game and don't have bikers or snow boarders on your team.

    david Posted: 10 years ago
  20. I need to get some accelerates. The all black ones look smooth.

    David H. Posted: 10 years ago
  21. yeah i got the accelerates, there a hella sick shoe, the only reason i didnt like em is cuz i dont look good in black an white shoes. the brown and clear blue ones are sick

    Marc Posted: 10 years ago
  22. I've got the accel plus now. They're so rad to skate it. I really like the heel stabaliser, it feels like you have so much more balance with in. The only problem is the nose wears down pretty quick where it flips the board.

    !!! IF POSSIBLE you guys at es have to put some hard plastic on the nose of the accels. I love EVERYTHING about the shoe expect that the ollie area wears out quick. Look at the material they use on the nose of the Adio kenny andersons v1. Put that same plastic on the nose of the accel plus and it is literally the most perfect skate shoe ever invented. PLEASE!

    Jack Posted: 10 years ago
  23. I havent skated mine yet, theyre just my chiller shoes for now. I skate in accels of course. cant skate in anything else. believe me ive tried..

    shane Posted: 10 years ago
  24. I just bought the Accelerate last weekend, and these shoes made more of a difference than any shoe I have ever worn. I was just trying to get used to the shoes with some flip tricks and I landed a switch varial heel, I had been trying the trick for a while with the accel plus, but I could never even set it down. Also, I was skating at this gap called Hilton and it is like 6 feet tall but not very long at all. I kicked out when I went to ollie it first try but when I fell on the groud my feet did not feel shit, then I landed it next try and kick fliped that son of a bitch.

    Eric Ryan Posted: 10 years ago
  25. I love the accelerates but make more colors for them and never stop making accels

    D.J. Beach Posted: 10 years ago
  26. really good shoe keep it coming!!!!!!!!!!!

    coady Posted: 10 years ago
  27. I think the K6s are a good shoe. Im waiting for Es to come up with something new. Until then peace out!

    Zach Diekman Posted: 10 years ago
  28. dude, ES is seriously the BEST shoe company for skateboarding. Most of their shoes are tech designed and built for endurance. The Accel Series is by far the best skate shoe I have ever used. Everytime I get new shoes for skating, which is about every 2 months, I buy accels. Yet I've only used the Black/Gum color, and the tan/gold color. I've had the Black/Red Accel plus, and many other accels. I'm looking forward to trying out the new Accelerates. the brown and whites are so freakin sick! Can't wait to try those out! the blue gum color is awesome. it's unique, unlike all the other boring shoe companies out there, like Fallen and Circa. BOO!!! Up with ES! Ese!

    DaveMustaine Posted: 10 years ago
  29. by the way.... sean, youre a dumbasse!

    DaveMustaine Posted: 10 years ago
  30. anyone seen the maccels on the other link they look different, and the standards on the same link are pretty rad, who is this craig guy who has lunch with nuske? can i get in on that?ill pay if we go to taco bell

    adam Posted: 10 years ago
  31. Craig is the éS brand manager. And a super slick artist to boot.

    Josh P. Posted: 10 years ago
  32. the accelerates shoes are ok but éS needs to make them in more colors and different éS sign and they need to make some like the accelplus.

    John d Posted: 10 years ago
  33. ok. éS you need to put the new System G2™ Full Impact™ heel to toe protection in the accelplus and you sould make black and red Leather accelplus....................

    John d Posted: 10 years ago
  34. Thanks Josh for the love...you get a high five. We just finished picking some new colors for the Accelerates that come out in Spring 06. I'll see if I can sneek a pic of one on here. Cale picked up a pair of Standards yesterday and he's feeling them. I think he should stick to the Accelerate cause that dude jumps down some big shit. He's here for 3 months so I'm sure there will be some heavy shit going down. We might have to have a Blog Coloring contest or some thing. I'm thinking the crew that comes here and lurks gets to design a color and we call it the "Blog". Oh so epic.

    craig Posted: 10 years ago
  35. im feelin the black and blue one. ive got them now and nothin but good things. the only bad thing is that my dog apperently like them also, so he decides to chew on them.

    The Wizard Posted: 10 years ago
  36. yo. i think es should make the new eccelarates all white.now that will be hella tight

    erick Posted: 10 years ago
  37. im rockin the black and whites...hotness. bruised the ball of my toe a while back and have been limpin and these shoes not only stopped me from limping but let me skate again. my pediatrist was stoked. no joke.

    jim Posted: 10 years ago
  38. Sean, ,im sorry for callin you a fool as long as we all have mad love for éS its all good.

    $King of Bling$ Posted: 10 years ago
  39. king of bling such my wang u dumbass bitch i could never skate a nother shoe than accels that why i have liek 10 i havent worn in my room n case sum shit happens and i never can get another pair.

    dutchskater Posted: 10 years ago
  40. maby like ur mom eats them or suminn who know?

    dutchskater Posted: 10 years ago
  41. I think the accelerates are mad good for skating--there the best shoes I've ever skated in...these are the one shoes you guys really wanna get.

    Harry Posted: 10 years ago
  42. k i will go get soem tommarow

    dutchskater Posted: 10 years ago
  43. dutch skater sucks, bro your turning this thing into the message board like emerica has. all those people just hate on each other and shit

    adam Posted: 10 years ago
  44. yeah hating is heinous

    $King of Bling$ Posted: 10 years ago
  45. i know man wer talking about accelerates not emericas

    erick Posted: 10 years ago
  46. i have a pair of accels i have been wearing for about 6 months now and im probably going to buy a pair of accelerates or another pair of accels. they are the best shoe in the biz!

    seriousguy Posted: 10 years ago
  47. the shop I got to out here doesn't have the accelerate yet because there're late gettin them in but I'm gonna get me a pair when they get here, I want the brown tan and white ones those look so tight

    Blake Posted: 10 years ago
  48. i have the black and white ones, they lasted me a good while i havent had a problem with the g2, its worked wonderfully, in fact so good that i just bought another pair of them and their on the way i got em in black and blue because i like the idea of the clear sole, being able to actually see what protects your feat is fucking sick

    james Posted: 10 years ago
  49. I just laced up my pair of blue blacks and I didn't realize how much a difference the gel makes...seriously...and I FUCKING WORK HERE. At first I thought oh these are a bit heavy but you don't even notice it once you start skating. Eric started working on some new shoes and he's running the similar set up into his next kicks....craze

    Oh and there is an all white accelerate coming out this Holiday by the way. PJ was skating them last. That dude skate shoes until they completely fall apart...he's "keepin' it skate".

    craig Posted: 10 years ago
  50. We just got the Accelerate in Toronto... I haven't got a pair yet, saving up, but I got a pair of Accels right now, can't wait to try a pair!

    Can't wait to see some new acce/accel plus colourways!!!

    sh!f Posted: 10 years ago
  51. The Accelerate's felt nice in the shop, but I haven't had a chance to actually skate in them. eS, I hope the Accels never go away.

    I'm feeling this whole blog thing, seems like our opinion might actually matter.

    Brendan Posted: 10 years ago
  52. By the way Craig, aren't those clear soles supposed to last longer? That's what DC claimed with theirs on the Mantecas a while back.

    I actually like the clear sole, it's something different, but I hear that they become yellow quickly.

    Brendan Posted: 10 years ago
  53. cock and balls

    cock and balls Posted: 10 years ago
  54. I have the black/blues and they are really good. I killed my heels skating in the Reynolds 3s and the accelerates have helped my feet heal. I just hope the full impact doesn't die as quick as normal g2.

  61. they are out spring 06

    Cory Posted: 10 years ago
  62. I heard the pj shoe might be ugly because of what pj saying it was going to have an athletic look to it I think, my friend told me this, but I know for sure they'll be very good skate shoes considering all the accel series success.

    Harry Posted: 10 years ago
  63. is this colorway synthetic?

    rasalibre4life Posted: 10 years ago
  64. rasalibre4life Posted: 10 years ago
  65. Yes it is.

    Josh P. Posted: 10 years ago
  66. Brendan- I don't think the clear sole lasts any longer than a gum sole. We have been running all sorts of test on them and it seems to be the same.The sole does discolor but not horrible to the point where you like, "fuck this shoe is ugly". We are doing tests now to make sure the clear soles don't change color. All soles get dirty and turn colors eventually. You gotta watch what DC says. Those dudes are the kings of claiming shit, We actually have been running test on their kicks and a lot of the shit they say isn't all that they are claiming. In the end it's up to you dudes to call people out.

    PJ's first shoe is pretty awesome. It's real clean and looks banging. We've even started on his second shoe. I'll see if PJ wants to talk on here...he likes to keep a low profile though as I'm sure you all know

    craig Posted: 10 years ago
  67. GET PJ ON

    skate éS Posted: 10 years ago
  68. i think i might get the accelerates if they had different colors, try a color scheme with black overall and then colored ES and colored gumm like A blak/red/red

    Ryan Posted: 10 years ago
  69. almost every poser at my school has these

    michael Posted: 10 years ago
  70. Hey Ryan. Did you see the Black/Grey/Gum colorway?


    Josh P. Posted: 10 years ago
  71. to bad they tear easier than any shoe i have ever skated.......
    but i love the g2 full impact. :)

    eric l Posted: 10 years ago
  72. awesome, i think i'll get these after my accels are done (which may be a while)

    rasalibre4life Posted: 10 years ago
  73. the accel are great but i'm obligate to buy a new pair a month cause the sole is always fucking scrap. Please stop trying to find new colorway and just put a better sole. Think quality first

    billy bob Posted: 10 years ago
  74. Billy Bob- We are in the process of developing longer lasting soles that still grip and allow you to have the board feel.

    That sucks they tear for you quickly Eric L. We could put rubber toe caps on but those suck...no board feel, to slippery etc etc. If you are ripping them fast try putting crazy glue on just the stitches. Before I started working at éS I use to do that to my shoes and it made them last longer. You can also use shoe goo but that shit makes your shoes all jacked looking

    craig Posted: 10 years ago
  75. i dnt care wot u ppl say i recon ther fit man ther like the most up2date technology is sk8 boarding and thr just gud lukin it cud use a strap like but ther still prety sweet, by the way the es teem r like one of the best teems iv seen, tom penny has an awsom style and nyjah huston is a sk8in killer he kills spots him.

    ant .g. Posted: 10 years ago
  76. yeah i have the accelerates in brown and tan one of the best shoes i ever skated! the g2 full impact... words can't describe good it fells, add an ankle strap and it will be perfect!!you guys should come up with better colors

    WaLdO Posted: 10 years ago
  77. yo craig.... the blue soles lose grip kinda quick on them accelerates... maybe cos its not gum... im yet to try out the other coloways... bu8t i would like to say that an improved version of the accel with g2 or whatever without a strap would be great. its just right...but evenm better would be ciceros or breaker mid/lo with the g2 in them... that would be Fantabulous! please bring them out...then i wouldnt have to buy any other skate shoes! also improve the colorways please! keep em simple..like light grey suede... mmmmmm schweeet!

    mojo Posted: 10 years ago
  78. The accelerate look pretty sick and if they are even half as good as the accels then i'm going to get them

    Peter Posted: 10 years ago
  79. yes i did Josh P

    ryan Posted: 10 years ago
  80. craig whats the difference between the k6 and the 6.5 other than them being mids. i was lookin at picking up some k6s some time so id like to see whats different.

    clay Posted: 10 years ago
  81. dude i kept hurting my feet super bad wich is wierd for a 12 year old and i already have screwed up knees so when i heard about this shoe i bagged my brand new gay emerica ellingtons that hurt my feet and the day my skate shop got them in they were mine now i do higher stuff and it does make a HUGE HUGE difference and it has good board feel

    cody Posted: 10 years ago
  82. please come out with solid colors for the accelerate,
    and put the hidden lace loops under every eyelet instead of just the bottom two

    Matt C Posted: 10 years ago
  83. one word.....heavenly

    b Posted: 10 years ago
  84. I resent that rubber toe cap remark, haha. The Reynolds 1's are still the best shoe I have ever skated in my life.

    Brendan Posted: 10 years ago
  85. I have a pair of the black/blue are theyre sweet no problem at all i like them a lot im also getting a pair of t he brown/tan/white they look nice too =)..no problem with the colorways i think they are perfect the black blue and the brown white. The blue sole is_the best part!

    Tony Posted: 10 years ago
  86. I have a pair of the accelerate and accel plus I like the feel and cushioning way better in the accelerates though. I think that eS should put and ankle strap on the accelerate. It would just complete the shoe. also why is it so hard to find the white/red colorway accelerate?

    Jake C. Posted: 10 years ago
  87. The accelerates PJ's wearin on the wallpaper is mad bangin! Keep up the good kicks, k?

    YéS Posted: 10 years ago
  88. well, i got the accelerate the day it went out here in holland, it's kinda like the accel but just way more advanced, u guys at éS must keep the accel in! accel are selling great in holland tho. but i like the accelerate, i have the ones pj is wearing.. i think he likes them, cuz in the demo capitals tour holland(sucked tho) he was wearing the eos

    Erik Posted: 10 years ago
  89. Make Them In black suede with a gum sole, I got the Accels in that colorway and I would buy the accelerates in that colorway

    Kevin L. Posted: 10 years ago
  90. Can I get some confirmation on that synthetic accelerate question that rasalibre4life asked? [not to diss Josh P, but I'm not sure who you are and if you'd know that info for certain]

    ttp://esfootwear.com/footwear/accelerate/black-darkgrey-gum.jpg" rel="nofollow">http://esfootwear.com/footwear/accelerate/black-darkgrey-gum.jpg

    and while we're at it, what about these jonks:

    ttp://www.esfootwear.com/footwear/accelplus/black-gum.jpg" rel="nofollow">http://www.esfootwear.com/footwear/accelplus/black-gum.jpg

    I'd be friggin thrilled if these are synthetic, but at the same time: shoe companies need to get with the program and stop making their only synthetic colorways all black. There's no reason why you can't make an all synthetic shoe that is just as stylish as a leather/suede model. Look at Fallen for proof.

    mr. tips Posted: 10 years ago
  91. Dude, this is really the best shoe i have ever ever have had. After all this time they came out with a shoe that rules now I can jump of huge stairs and ledges THANK YOU ES!

    Billy tams Posted: 10 years ago
  92. I'm thinking of getting these bitches. They look mad steezy. The full foot G2 is a plus also. Looks like an over all awsome shoe.

    Cody "madda" Carlson Posted: 10 years ago
  93. Mr. Tips, both those shoes are synthetic. The little red speach bubble to the left of my name means I know what I'm talking about. Well this time at least.

    Josh P. Posted: 10 years ago
  94. Also Internet Explorer will screw up the red bubble deal. Get firefox.

    Josh P. Posted: 10 years ago
  95. i agree with what mr. tips said
    more synthetic colorways, please

    rasalibre4life Posted: 10 years ago
  96. g2 in the heel alone is all you need, but this is probally way better. i bet it makes skating big stuff like skating small stuff and skating small stuff like skating flatground and skating flat ground like skating on pillows, and skating on pillow like, well nobody skates on pillows.

    jeremy Posted: 10 years ago
  97. hey rasalibre4life, this was reynolds_11 on the EMB. That board sucks ass

    Cody Posted: 10 years ago
  98. oh, and Craig, try to post some pics please! i want to see this stuff that you talk about. It all sounds kick ass.

    Cody Posted: 10 years ago
  99. Mojo- You are right about the clear soles getting a bit slippery but we only noticed it being slippery on super smooth concrete..kind of like the concrete at the Etnies skate park. On regular asphalt it held up good but of course it's not as good as traditional gum. We are making some new ones with just parts of it clear so it can remain grippy. The other Accelerate models are pretty grippy though. Bobby Worrest has been running the blue clear ones and PJ was running the all white ones for a minute. Most of the dudes have been rocking the black white ones. We finalized some new colors for 06 and I think 06 is the year we start snapping necks in the skate shoe world.

    Clay- The k6.5 is just a mid top with a thinner tongue and some nicer leather. Eric wanted a mid/high top shoe for a bit more support and of course style. The difference is in the styling. Eric wanted you dudes to have options. If I'm not to busy today I'll take some pics and put them up for you to check. We are still working on some minor details but so far they are banging.

    Synthetics- We are working on more synthetics or at least offering one synthetic in each shoe. Most synthetics look like shit though. Not to talk shit but Fallen kicks look mad budget and they are so basic. We've tried numerous synth' colors but they just come off looking super cheap and they don't last long. We'll get it dialed though. 06 is our year fellas' and the colors/materials we are making are amazing..you'll be stoked.

    craig Posted: 10 years ago
  100. hey craig put full hidden lace loops on accels(instead of just the bottom 2) in '06 if the shoes are gonna be so good

    Matt C Posted: 10 years ago

  105. are the koston 6.5's the shoe koston is rocking in the March 2005 of transworld? in the story about the girl and chocolate tour

    Jake C. Posted: 10 years ago
  106. Thanks Josh. Figured that red bubble meant something.

    Craig, I'm not sure what your definition of "mad budget" is exactly. I've only skated the Rivals (2 pairs), but those things have been some of the best shoes I've ever had (which I never thought I'd say about a shoe coming through DC). I started taking a towel with me when I wore the brown/chocolate pair, since there would always end up being kids drooling over them. I'm anxious for the new Fallen lineup because I know Jamie is going to offer me more than another computer help-desk steez colorway to skate and chill in.

    So yeah, it's great that éS has more synthetics planned. And if you think that what you've got planned beats what else is out there, then that's all the better. But you've got to come correct with some real colorways this time. Don't take that as a diss, either. Take it as a challenge.

    mr. tips Posted: 10 years ago
  107. Tips- All good. "Mad budget" refers to the cheap materials, the budget look and the crappy feel and the blown out last (foot shape). I hate talking shit and I try not to but them shits are just direct bites off of other tried and true skate shoes but lack the quality. Jamie is awesome and the shit he does is awesome. I'm just saying the shoes are junk and bring nothing new to the table. It's all good and I can care less what the others are doing out there. The colors/fabrics will be amazing for 06..you'll see. I just got here and the shit we are running for the new kits are going to crush heads...believe that.

    Hey Jake- The shoes Koston is running are actually the k7s in that issue.

    Full hidden lace loops?...Is this some thing you are all into?

    craig Posted: 10 years ago
  108. yes
    you already put the hidden loops on the bottom two eyelets of the accels it cant be that hard to put them under every eyelet !PLEASE!

    Matt C Posted: 10 years ago
  109. bring back white suede accels please!!!

    keith Posted: 10 years ago
  110. synthetic shoes are full blown gay, don't bother...kill more cows

    magic nugget Posted: 10 years ago
  111. i want accelerates bad! do they have rubber under neath the toe like the accels do? i think you should put cushion inside the shoes infront of the toe cuz when i skate my toe smashes against the tip of the shoes and it hurts alot!

  115. Wouter- No filming goes down at the warehouse but www.skatefairy.com might still have a clip from the early days when MJ, Eric and some others shredded it up. They just built some new obstacles that are straight up amazing and so much fun. Berra is part owner of the place and I know DVS has been shooting photos there for a catalog so you might be able to see some flicks from it soon-

  116. Full lace protectors are always a nice option to have, thought most of the time I don't use them. But hell, throw them in there, what can it hurt?

    Brendan Posted: 10 years ago
  117. can u guys get some pics from the 06 line up in the blogs

    Ryan Posted: 10 years ago
  118. u should see about putting Tom on es apparel and get some penny steez out there

    magic nugget Posted: 10 years ago
  119. about synthetic shoes looking bad, all i have to say is rowley. every single one of his shoes have been 100% synthetic in every colorway, and they have been some of the most poular shoes out there. i really don't care tht they don't last long by themselves 'cause when you put some super glue on them at the high-wear areas, and it seriously lasts forever. i'm all good as long as you've got some synthetic colorways on the line, you guys are doing a lot better than most shoe companies are

    rasalibre4life Posted: 10 years ago
  120. the Accelerates are one of the best eS' shoes goin around while you people are going on about how crap they are and stuff like that why dont you shut up and actually try them before you say shit! people like that piss me off it just like when people go on about how shit a board is but they have never skated that board or that brand of board. all eS' shoes are good especially the Accelerates oh and PJ Ladd is sick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bryce Posted: 10 years ago
  121. The Accelerates are definitly a tight shoe...without a doubt. I really like the new insoles and the full gel part in the sole...no hurt feet after skating long hours...like in a pair of blown out Accels...Don't get me wrong, I'm not knockin' the Accels, they 're my fav sk8 shoe until now since they got competition from the Accelerate. Anyway, for eS...you guys keep up the excellent work making great products, and for the team, you guys are inspiring and I think the best in skateboarding ...TONS of talent...can't wait fot the new vid!!!!!! Go Skateboarding!!!!! Peace!

    Matt Posted: 10 years ago

    doug Posted: 10 years ago

    magic nugget Posted: 10 years ago
  127. these shoes are poo on a stick the heel protection does fuck all and the blue sole looks like it would glow in the dark plus when you where them it feels all crap like u've got water in your shoe. p.s the spare pair of laces are a shit color

    alex Posted: 10 years ago
  128. if e's keeps on making tech shoes no one is gonna skate them but the acells are the best shoe the old designs are better

    allen Posted: 10 years ago

    alex Posted: 10 years ago
  131. hey skate dont hate dudes................. i give hella props to rasa and craig an josh p cauz those guys arent yeah. sick dudes!

    Marc Posted: 10 years ago
  132. take the g2 out and make better colorways

    Matt C. Posted: 10 years ago
  133. accelerates are great shoes, they've got more support so my arches don't kill me after a while. I'll definitely be picking up another pair. accels are all I skate nowadays.
    isn't there another accel based shoe called the maccel that's coming out pretty soon, too?

    chom Posted: 10 years ago
  134. i just got the blak/white accelerates and they r amazingly comfy and flexible also good board feel only flaw is that the white is leather instead of suede i would rather all suede but thats just me i give it an "A"

    Ryan m Posted: 10 years ago
  135. i always wore the Accels, any McCranks and, of course any Kostons

    Rob Posted: 10 years ago
  136. Koston, your next shoe better skate like these. They are swag man.

    Rodriguez Posted: 10 years ago
  137. Ive seen Sam Winters skating those shoes. Hes on Es flow right.

    Shaun Ruhland Posted: 10 years ago
  138. im kinda pissed ive owned a paird of accelerates for a while now theyre great shoes so i ordered another pair, well its week 3 and my shit isnt here im just gonna cancel the order and get a new deck

    james Posted: 10 years ago
  139. make the accelerates black suede gum or something like that synthetic is bad.

    Alex Posted: 10 years ago
  140. Some guy about three years ago was wearing the accelerate shoe with the crystal gum thing. I told him if the shoe was new and he told me that, that shoe wont come out to bussinnes. He is a liar, hooo by the way he works at the STI. He was at the Vans Skatepark some where in Santa Ana or Orange, I dont know!

    Danny M Posted: 10 years ago
  141. i think 'eS shoes should make some more light weight shoes. More like the accel.

    Sutin Srisuwong Posted: 10 years ago
  142. i havent skated the shoes yet, but they do look amazing, i bet skatin them is like butter.... full gel sounds real good too.... cause i remember when i had the normal accels i got MAD heel bruses like the first day.... thats the only beef i had with them... but ya, good colours too

    alix Posted: 10 years ago
  143. ya i like them i have a pare of them i think they should not have the es on the side but there soo good to skate.

    Gus giannotti Posted: 10 years ago
  144. yea guys i was so phsyched about the g2 in these cause you guys ('es) make it sound awesome but wen i got em it really didnt make a difference invent somethin new

    Ryan Posted: 10 years ago
  145. hey is this shoe synthetic or leather?
    cuz thats like the only accelerate with gum and synthetic is gay but if i had a choice weter or not to kill a cow id say dont

    Marc Posted: 10 years ago
  146. synthetic, leather is for fags

    craig Posted: 10 years ago
  147. yea its synthetic

    Ryan Posted: 10 years ago
  148. Synthetic sucks and looks like crap make them in black suede with gum sole please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Cory Posted: 10 years ago

    CORY Posted: 10 years ago
  150. i own accels and accelerats and bin sk8in em both they both have sum rele gd points, accelerates feel a little strange when u first sk8 em coz they dnt have much board feel but once u sk8 em 4 a while they r rele nice especialy when sk8in big drops or stairs. the accels are also great coz they r more raw and have more feel 2 em they r the best shoes ive ever sk8ed and es should never stop making em the reason i like em more athn the rates is coz you can actually feel the board and they just feel right when u r sk8in in em nothing is an effort.

    ken Posted: 10 years ago
  151. dude seriously, when are you guys coming out with new colorways for the accelerates? most of these colors are sick like the brown tan, white red and blue black but there soles suck.i tried to ollie over this curb grass curb flat gap thing with the black and white ones and if slammed hella hard cuz the board came off my feet. make some with the gum sole that isnt synthetic cuz synthetic rips too fast

    Marc Posted: 10 years ago
  152. fuck synthetic, fuck leather , 'Es make all of your shoes suede

    Ryan Posted: 10 years ago
  153. Yes! You need to make full lace protection! I must know at least 10 people around here that will only buy a pair of shoes if they have lace protection.

    All the shoes I have ever worn have been leather, and one pair of Nubuck. Now my friends tell me that suede sucks, but it sounds like everyone likes it.. what do you és guys say?

    Justin Posted: 10 years ago

    ZachE Posted: 10 years ago
  155. Justin sued seriously sucks huge wang

    ZachE Posted: 10 years ago
  156. dude suede is the best seriously its so much more comfortable and soft and everything like that the one thing leather has that suede doesnt is it lasting just a little bit longer

    Marc Posted: 10 years ago
  157. yeah and black suede turns blue so thats hells sick

    Marc Posted: 10 years ago
  158. i like leather, but ive never had a seuade shoe in 5 years, so i wouldnt have a good judgement.

    JohnE Posted: 10 years ago
  159. I can't belive this shoe is on the BLOG!
    this is the shoe that i'm getting next!
    But the colour combo I want aren't on any websit 2 buy!
    can U plz fix that?

    jason Posted: 10 years ago
  160. Jason, what color are you looking for? It's probably a color that comes out in June.

    Josh P. Posted: 10 years ago
  161. I think the clear sole looks bad ass. Sorry, I'm a little late, but I had to say that in defense of this colorway.

    Alex Posted: 10 years ago
  162. Is tan/gum coming in june? Dude I just made fucking beef stir-fry! With juicy bell peppers and ireland green color broccoli! Also, a hint of time, which perks up the flavor of the U.S.D.A. Grade A Beef. It's a good thing.And to top it all off, I'm twelve so i can look forward to having a future as a guest on Emeril Live. Or on his evil twin brother's show, Let's Make Emeril not Live, A.K.A. Kill Emeril's Little Lessons(KELL).

    Marc Posted: 10 years ago
  163. nevrmind G2 makes a big diff in skating its a keeper

  173. The Maccel comes out in June. Colorways are: Black/Dark Grey/Gum, Black/Orange/White, Navy/Grey and Brown/Tan.

    Josh P. Posted: 9 years ago
  174. When is the Accel Plus going to get the STI Foamâ„¢ Level 2 footbed cushioning system like the Accelerate, or is that just a fancy name for what's already in there?

    3 litre days Posted: 9 years ago
  175. The Accel Plus has the STI Foam footbed. Most of the new colorways should have it.

    Josh P. Posted: 9 years ago
  176. i think the accelerates are cool but they havnt got enuf board feel with the g2 gel and the sti foam....... the new accels with the sti foam and the g2 gel are cool but they feel loads nicer just with a normal accel insole in them more board feel but with a cusion so it stops heel bruise...... but the accelerates have notheing on the accels...

    Josh P. Posted: 9 years ago
  191. i never skated them but at the shop they felt kinda heavy and my fav ones are the blue and black ones you guys should make them in a light brown/tan color

    grant lyon Posted: 9 years ago
  192. thanks

    mike Posted: 9 years ago
  193. The shoe's sick, i agree that it needs an all black/gum colorway in a bad way. Although I feel like the black/white ones didn't blow out as fast as the all suede. i think the patches of leather, although they didn't affect the overall suede goodness grip of the shoe, i think they helped the shoe keep its shape.

    I also think the tongue is a bit craze, the second pair i bought i halved the stuffing in the tongue and sewed it back up.

    From a non functional standpoint, the shoe wouldn't hurt if it had some more interesting materials, perhaps snakeskin in the non functional areas and suede on the toecap/heel/ollie area (all black).

    The Maccels look cool, it's funny how someone brought back the muska-like ollie guard.

    bryan Posted: 9 years ago
  194. maybe perforated leather to let the foot breathe, my feet get real heated from skating all day.

    bryan Posted: 9 years ago
  195. ive had accelerate brown/tan for about a month.
    skate rad, real good board feel, and the heel bruises i got from two pairs of sal23s in a row are finally starting to stop hurting.

    Ultimate Russ Posted: 9 years ago
  196. the accelerates are sick. I have'nt skated them yet but they look good and I've heard good things. What I really want to see is a gallery that shows all the colorways of the accels that there are and ever have been. That would be sick.

    gray Posted: 9 years ago
  197. At this point they should just make it so you can custom order accels in any colorway or material you want online.

  199. Yeah they are pretty cool dont like the sole though not that off blue shit it sucks get that out and make them black and gum thats the way to go.

    mike Posted: 9 years ago
  200. damn, i'm probably real late with it but i jus checked out the maccel.. yo eS is gettin pretty tech if you ask me. idk, i'm more fond of the simpler designs.

    truehead Posted: 9 years ago
  201. are the Maccels suppused to be like a upgrade of the Accels because they look a lot a like and if you think of the name it sounds like its suggesting the Accels are MAXED out also called MACCELS, just an opinion or thought. And the cool thing is the first color they are coming out with is my favorite color, Orange and Black.

    skate and eat Posted: 9 years ago
  202. We like to have a couple tech shoes in the line up for the people that like that kind of design. But I think we have a pretty good balance between simple and tech to keep most of you guys happy.
