K7 Is So Banging!

Posted May 6, 2005 by éS


Dudes, we are dropping these kicks any day at your local shop. There are four colors (only showing three for now). Our favorite is the Black / Red ones with the elephant skin toe and heel. (No, not real elephant skin.) Wait until you guys skate in these! They're my new favorites, fo' sure.

  1. They kinda look like girl's Phat Farm shoes. They're decent. They'll be around for a while, way better than the shitty K6's. It may even be up in K1 or K3 levels. All I can say is, you need more/better colorways.

  6. Theyre ok they probably could have been better but still way better than k6's and the k5's but still ill probably buy them.

    sketchy Posted: 9 years ago
  7. Not bad, not too hot but not ugly.He's releasing these shoes too quick, I still got to buy the K5!

    Rick Posted: 9 years ago
  8. now show us pics of teh pj pro model

    ken Posted: 9 years ago
  9. DVS?...like whoa. These are the first set of colors we are releasing besides the black red ones which we didn't post yet. They look good in person and fit really good. As for the PJ that shit is on some top secret level. He's been skating some samples. We have to make some changes but the PJ shoe is looking dope...clean and 100% skate.

    The k1 was my fav but I think the K7 is my new fav. Like I said a while ago I've also been running the k6 high which I need to post up here soon.

    Why do you guys hate the K6?

    craig Posted: 9 years ago
  10. sick shoes

    Bryson Posted: 9 years ago
  11. I don't hate the k6's. I saw Erick Koston in a Transworld Mag wearing K7's He got cover too! I might buy'em do they have Full imapct G2. You guys should make Full Impact G2O2. Full cushion.

    Paul Rosales Posted: 9 years ago
  12. They look real low pro not so puffy as K6.

    Paul Rosales Posted: 9 years ago
  13. definitely not as puffy in fact we even slimmed the K6 down a bit. The shoe has got G2 in it as well as the STI Foam footbed. Funny you mention the G202 stuff cause we got some things in the works with that as well some other goodies.

    The G2 stuff does make a difference right...

    craig Posted: 9 years ago
  14. Yeah, why does koston releases shoes out so damn fast? Does he have that little to do? Design shoes... go watch lakers game.. drink a few beers with atiba... design upcoming shoes ... go skate and film for chomp on this 2 ... *sighs*

    eS should stop relying on the name of the pro and more on elite designs like the Accels , make even better Accels , stop making all the other crap and just make ACCELS!! make so many that you have to liquidate your stock and end up selling them for 3$ a piece on the street to pay ur rent

    Caraquet Posted: 9 years ago
  15. they're alright, not gonna buy em, until the pj's come out, i'm stickin with the accels, the pj chocolate colourway skates awesome.

    Geoff Posted: 9 years ago
  16. Koston enjoys making shoes and he wants to make new shit for y'all to enjoy. Koston is a sneaker head so he takes pride in making stuff...between drinking beers with tibz' and shooting flicks (hahaha). The accel is the best skate shoe ever made..you are right Caraquet but we gotta keep things moving and strive to make the next shit. It's all about progression. "Sleep is the cousin of death".

    We ain't gonna drop pro models cause those dudes are our inspiration as well as the love of skateboarding...beli' dat dun-dun, holla-

    craig Posted: 9 years ago
  17. Geoff..those PJ Nubuck accels are mad buttery...I love that material

    craig Posted: 9 years ago
  18. da shoe is pretty nice but da color choices r pretty gay.

    anthony Posted: 9 years ago
  23. they look look like teddy roosevelt`s mocosins

    anthony Posted: 9 years ago
  24. i was going to buy the brown ones but now that i know they have g2 i will just buy accels instead....i dont like heel bruises

    Matt C Posted: 9 years ago
  25. I like them, I might get a pair. I'll have to look at all of the colors though.

    Jacob Posted: 9 years ago
  26. explain this picture to me


    koston has a heel bruise from wearing the k7 (with g2).....

    rasalibre4life Posted: 9 years ago
  27. release the antisocial first

    rasalibre4life Posted: 9 years ago
  28. ...hey craig... been listening to nas much lately?

    "sleep is the cousin of death"

    haha, i love that line.

    by thee waaaaay.... how long before different colorways of the k7? these are nice and all, but im not digging the colors too much. id like to see a brown and gum, like the accels style brown that pj used to always wear. thatd be hotness.

    yates Posted: 9 years ago
  29. So the K7 has System G2 or G2 Full Impact?

    Justin Posted: 9 years ago
  30. Justin, just G2. Yates, there are 6 colors coming out by July.

    Josh P. Posted: 9 years ago
  31. They seem aight. Now that i know they have g2 i'm way more likely to buy em. Make a black and blue colorway. That'ld be gangsta. Well maybe not gangsta, but i'ld love it.

    Mugagga Posted: 9 years ago
  32. i think they are cool!i'd buy them if they don't cost that much!koston said in an interview that he wanted to make a shoe (k6) that wasn't that expensive,while here in belgium you still pay like 100€ (=115$) for them!
    willyou release the all pink ones? or glow in the dark? shit would be tight!

    izzepark Posted: 9 years ago
  33. if they had some differnt colorways like chocholate w/gum or sumthin'

    By the way PJ need a pro model

    jason Posted: 9 years ago
  34. they need more colorway but they're fine

    learning english is the best part! Posted: 9 years ago
  35. da colors r so gay, dey should make like (all white/gum) yeah dose would be sik. I kind of like K6 better.

    ian apostol Posted: 9 years ago
  36. I don't know what's up with some people but I love the K6. Too bad they were so short lived. I've never owned any, but I'd like to. Although now, I'm not sure. I'm into the accelerate. Too many good shoes. Not enough $$$

    yes it makes a difference......a very bad difference

    Matt C Posted: 9 years ago
  38. do the k7 have any kind of protective lacing options

    and do they really come out any day now because my local shop owner told me they didnt come out until mid june

    Matt C Posted: 9 years ago
  39. I like it. minus the fact it has koston written on it.

    norm Posted: 9 years ago
  40. jordan III ?? or Koston VII ????

    ToNyXeS Posted: 9 years ago
  41. how is it that the K7 came out before the PJ1s? WTF

    Ryan Posted: 9 years ago
  42. and guys i really dont understand the whole G2 thing i dont feel a diff i rode the EK01s and now im riding the accelerates and i dont feel a diff

    Ryan Posted: 9 years ago
  43. and yes the K7s look like DVS's

    Ryan Posted: 9 years ago
  44. Does koston need another shoe. Didnt the K6 come out right before winter? There better be a PJ 4 before anthor koston shoe.

    Tyler Posted: 9 years ago
  45. I love it! And the first colorway is awesome!
    But I think Koston is not going to make any simple shoes anymore, isn't he? (like K6, which was dope!)

    Double E, Really Posted: 9 years ago
  46. like whoa...there's some serious venom being spit here and there and that's cool that's why built this site so you can speak your mind...ok down to biz-

    Yates- I was totally listening to Nas when I was writing that post. His early stuff is so good. The rest of the colors drop in June and then in Holiday. The best color is the red black ones but I'll wait to post that one and the Pink ones are pretty sick (the same ones he wore at that Game of Skate).

    k7s come out in June (that's a month a way). Izze-we know about the shoe prices out in Europe and we know it can get pricey we are trying to figure out a solution but that stuff takes time.

    The heel bruise Koston got wearing the k7s were a sample pair with out the gel inserts. After that he made sure that there was a gel insert in the heel...gnarly.

    As far as the K7 coming out before Pjs shoe..well..Pj wanted to make sure he got some thing he liked. PJ is new to the shoe game so it takes a little longer. His shoe will be out next year. As far the G2 stuff goes it does make a difference when you are jumping down some big shit. I personally skate low stuff and flat so I don't notice it.

    Tyler-PJ 4 is in the works...nah I'm joking. We need to get the 1 out before we start talking 4 but I can tell you we are working on the 2.

    Designing shoes takes a long time.

    Double E- Koston is working on some simpler designs. The k6 was suppose to be the ultimate...simple and not as expensive.

    McCranks shoe comes out this holiday for all you McCrank fans

    craig Posted: 9 years ago
  47. How much will they be in US dollars? What other tech is in the shoe other than G2?

    Uninc Posted: 9 years ago
  48. hey craig how many shoes would you say you guys make a year? i like the k7, the colors are okay, but im pretty sure that it would look better in person and it looks like it would feel loose yet tight so im down

    Marc Posted: 9 years ago
  49. Where are the lace protectors?

    Flick Posted: 9 years ago
  50. what shoes are the ones french fred is using here

    those are pretty cool

    Zopilallo Posted: 9 years ago
  51. these shoes are alright, but y'all need to skate up to your local shop to buy my new nikes- the NIKE SB P-RODS! nikes the next big thing in skateboarding, get em before we blow up n have to sell em for like $110.00

    -p. rod

    6438 711

    Paul Rodriguez Posted: 9 years ago
  52. I think the new K7's are awesome, especially the black/red ones. Keep up the good work! I'm buying a pair for sure.

    Alex Posted: 9 years ago
  53. lmfao...is that the real Paul Rodriguez!?!?...haha...

    the K7's look better than the K6's...I'll buy those...if not I'll rebuy the PJ Ladd Khaki colourway AccelPlus' again...hehe...i love this shoe...haven't used them for skating yet, tried a few tricks with em last nite and they just felt perfect. Fun to know that it's the only AccelPlus with the G2 Full impact...right? correct me if I'm wrong though, just guessin cos my friends regular AccelPlus only has the G2 Heel.

    Do the K7's have the Flo2 Tongue?

    Oh and about PJ Ladd's first pro model...They should just make the PJ Ladd shoe exactly as the current PJ Ladd Khaki AccelPlus's and on the Flo2 Tongue on top of the current G2 full impact and STI lvl Foambed inside. Then just remove the "B" and put Ladd's signature outside cos hell the signature printed on the insole wears off fast and that sucks...Now that is the perfect Ladd shoe in my opinion...

    skratchboarder Posted: 9 years ago
  54. oops...i meant "add on the Flo2 Tongue"

    lace protectors would be a kewl option as well...hehe...

    goddamnit now I really wanna just blow out my current sk8 shoes and use the Ladd AccelPlus' of mine...ergh...lol...

    skratchboarder Posted: 9 years ago
  55. Zopilallo. French Fred is not in that photo. Are you taking about Alex Moul? The guy with the white and brown shoes??

    Josh P. Posted: 9 years ago
    WHOA, K7 ROCKS, i had k6 they were clean but these i love m ive only saw it from one side

    erik Posted: 9 years ago
  57. i saw the k7s when tony was wearing em at the és game of skate last whenever the fuck it was...shits got steez of course... but why arent you guys coming to North Carolina for the game of skate or vagina (VA) beach? a bunch of people were looking forward to that...keep pimpin

    augusta Posted: 9 years ago
  58. josh is right... i just looked at that french fred question... there the lakai howard 3's in brown n' white... and that is alex moul...he fucking rips... he should ride for és...

    augusta Posted: 9 years ago
  59. Damn, those all look sick as hell. I honestly like all 3 of them. Is it just me, or do they look kinda high around the heel? Whatever, I know I'm gonna buy the white the moment my shop has it. I've had 3 pairs of K6's (the best skate shoe I've ever owned), and I'm looking forward to having 500 pairs of these.

    Oh and to all the kids who are pissing their pants in anticipation of Ladd's shoe, do yourself a favor and completely forget it about until its out. It will be more satisfying when you see it for the first time. Hype does kill things you know...

    Your Name Posted: 9 years ago
  60. wow

    keith Posted: 9 years ago
  61. I like the kostons 6s ive only had 2 pair but i thought they were sick, i like them to be puffy. Koston does release shoes too close together. It is a good idea to lay off releaseing pro model shoes for a second, i know Sparkles has got a huge bill to pay off for his caddy collection and his house but i would just re release the koston 3s before releasing the 7s kids love the 3s. Nas shit gets better with time, he put Jay-z into retirement

    Adam Foreal Posted: 9 years ago
  62. they look pretty good, but they could be a little bit more protective in some areas for example in the ollie area, and they also need better colorways for sure.

    Pimpero Posted: 9 years ago
  63. yeah that guy.
    sorry about that thought that was french fred, but still wanna know what shoes they are

    Zopilallo Posted: 9 years ago
  64. when is the radle coming out

    philip Posted: 9 years ago
  65. there alrite im gonna wait for PJ's tho.

    Chad Posted: 9 years ago
  66. i'm not feelin these colorways too much. i saw a couple of pics of koston in the black/red/elephant skin ones. those are hot. i've been rockin accel plusses for the longest now, so i'm like, real used to havin a strap. n i dont even use the strap, i leave that junk stickin up n out. thas how i like to rock em, looks hot like that.

    truehead Posted: 9 years ago
  67. the k5s are the biggest pieces of shit ever no one ever get them, the accels are prob the only amazing shoe, they last forever, the k7s look ok , but id still rather the accels

    Steven Posted: 9 years ago
  68. Hey Your Name is right. Stop worrying about PJ's shoe 'til its out. He's my favorite skater too but the K7s got mad steez. i think i'll pimp those out while i listen to some wu-tang and nas while i'm skatin.

    Doug Posted: 9 years ago
  69. they look really good.... no more straps on shoes they look lame and are useless

    tyrone a tron Posted: 9 years ago
  70. they're nice, but you know , i've NEVER seen the K2's, whats up with that?!

    javier Posted: 9 years ago
  71. yo i just bought a pair of accels in size 12; which is my size, but for some reason they are huge.... now that i used them too much, i can send em back.. whats up with the size differences compared to other shoes??

    es' lover Posted: 9 years ago

    Marc Posted: 9 years ago
  75. Leather, synthetic and suede upper materials
    Double-stiched ollie area and toe cap
    Padded tongue and collar for comfort
    Lightweight and supportive strobel construction
    G2 heel cushioning gel instert
    Full-length internal EVA midsole
    Integrated heel counter for stability...........sOUNDs good exept it need TRIPLE wait no QUAD stiched. going in X's like the k 1's

    eesy Posted: 9 years ago
  79. ill skate any es shoes so it dont really matter but the pj s better be sick

    grant lyon Posted: 9 years ago
  80. Man the k7 look hella sick man. I think they look really good to skate in. I hope I get a pair soon when it comes. A red black and white color would look sick on the k7. Also the laker color.

    Sutin Srisuwong Posted: 9 years ago
  81. lets get to choppin on that eS vid - cant wait to see that

    koston's new shoes look pretty tight so get 'em on the conveyer lines so i can pick a pair up

    a chocolate/tan colour would look dope, but we'll have to see what happens

    Dan Posted: 9 years ago
  82. love the K6, look forward to the 7, but what about the 6 1/2? is it being scrapped? will it ever drop?

    dstrytruitt Posted: 9 years ago
  83. Zopilallo... its already been explained what shoes Alex Moul (for some odd reason, thought to be French Fred) was wearing, they are the Lakai Howard 3's in Brown N' White... i cant wait till the Penny 3, Teixeira 2, Ladd, Javi, Nuske, and any other pro model comes out... mainly the Penny 3s, and if Nuske gets one... i'll be the first to get either one... shits gone be dope with steez all over

    augusta Posted: 9 years ago
  84. get some taste in shoes dumbasses. obviously these peepholes been workin hard and if they skate in them and say theyre good, just go with it until you get some yerselves...dont say shit

    Mr.McPoopie Posted: 9 years ago
  85. i think they rock. just cant wait for diff colors tho

    Mr.McPoopie Posted: 9 years ago
  86. Mr.McPoopie shut up you have no idea what you are talking about. you obviously just started skating.

    Doug Posted: 9 years ago
  87. tight but more colorways! make red and black , not black and red. more pics i looked at the transworld mag but no es ad was in it so i couldn't enter the comp. whats up with that!!!!!!!!! this was in denver, colorado

    John d Posted: 9 years ago
  88. the ad just dropped in the Photo annual. Kyle Leeper is on the cover. We'll also have info in the news section...shit..is it even up yet? I spend most of the time here. I barely check our news any more...yikes!

    6.5s are coming out but it's in Spring 2006..yikes. We used really nice leather so it might be more loot.

    As for the YéS video it's suppose to come in December but you know how skate videos go. The dudes are out there filming as I write this.

    There are posts about the video on this site so you can revisit them.

    craig Posted: 9 years ago
  89. K7...Style for days! The black/red/elephant skin is such a unique and appropriate colorway for this shoe. They almost remind me of the style of some Original air jordans from way back. Less puff is definetly a plus and I'm on Craigs side with his opinion on this being Koston's greatest design (except maybe the K3)...Let's just hope they skate as good as they look.

    P.S.- So Hot- ACCELERATES...the accel times 10 with the G2 system full impact!
    So Not- P.J. Accel shoe...the nubuck shit dose not belong on the accel!
    Anyone Agree?

    P-Gush Posted: 9 years ago
  90. those k7 are so nice when they come out im geting apair of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ronald carolina Posted: 9 years ago
  91. the G2 is bull shit!!! i really doesnt make a difference invent something new, study dr. scholls MAYBE IT will give an idea cuz those actually work!

    Ryan Posted: 9 years ago
  92. nubuck sucks penis! rebell, my friends! REBELL!

    Marc Posted: 9 years ago
  93. craig.show us some pics of the K6.5.

    Zopilallo Posted: 9 years ago
  94. uhh...wasn't there going to be a game of skate in portland, OR? or did that cet cancelled for some reason?

    rasalibre4life Posted: 9 years ago
  95. these sh0es are actually pretty ghey.

    Uninc Posted: 9 years ago
  96. hey craig will there be any games of skate in vancouver.

    floyd3000 Posted: 9 years ago
  97. iz der really K 6.5 i never herd about it

    ian apostol Posted: 9 years ago
  98. we'll I think there dope i saw Koston skating them at a demo in Perth, Australia in black/red. they looked hell good up close coz i managed to have a peek when he was signing my board. like craig said just wait till you see them up close.

    Bryce Posted: 9 years ago
  99. How come Koston always has 1 good shoe and then a couple of bad ones then ANOTHER good shoe and then a couple more bad ones?!? and the process repeats.

    algenon Posted: 9 years ago
  100. If you don't like the g2 buy a shoe that doesn't have it..how easy is that? It's almost magic, right?

    As for the Game of Skate in Canada I'm not sure on that schedule. I know they are doing them up there and I think the winner gets a chance to compete in the big Am game and the winner from that versus the pros. Last year the Am dude that won made it to the final 6...pretty gnarly.

    As for Portland I don't see it on the schedule on my desk. Ask your shop to get one going. They just need to contact us and we can look into doing it. The problem is time and man power.

    Nubuck sucks?...That shit looks mad good on a shoe. Again, if you hate it don't buy it.

    After I'm done shredding the red curbs with the shoe dudes today I'll go over and get a pic of the 6.5 so you can see it. We are still making some changes to it so it might not be the finished one.

    How many of you think skulls are played out in skateboarding? If I see one more skull graphic I'm going to loose my shit.

    craig Posted: 9 years ago
  101. speaking of skulls, I heard the new Zero vid is a rail killer. I loved Dying To Live though. It was like every single one of them did SOMEthing amazing for their part.

    Justin Posted: 9 years ago
  102. the problem with buying a shoe without g2 is that every new shoe that comes out has it

    Matt C Posted: 9 years ago
  103. why post a pic of the k7 and not the P.J pro model. think about it everybody is waiting for the new P.Js and the k7s come out and there not that hot.

    dany Posted: 9 years ago
  104. rasa you can also check http://www.gameofskate.com/schedule/

    r00ts Posted: 9 years ago
  105. man, i was thinkin of colorways for some of eS' shit. they beat me to this color combo


    need not worry, i'll be thinkin up some more shit.
    that'd be hot if eS had a custom eS type thing.
    do your own colorways n order em.
    i wasnt all too souped on nike's go at that.

    truehead Posted: 9 years ago
  106. Danny, for the 1,000th time. It's to early to show what the PJ shoe looks like. You bloggers will be the first to see it. So just chill. Thanks.

    Josh P. Posted: 9 years ago

    John d Posted: 9 years ago
  114. penny 2 are gay they look like worker boots !!!!1!!!

    John d Posted: 9 years ago
  115. etnies? I'm not sure if I heard of Etnies. Oh wait, I did hear of them. Arto wanted to explore his options so he walked on over to etnies. Arto rips...his part in Menikimati is so awesome. Penny Shoes gay?...mmm I don't think they are gay..they are mad tough looking especially the all white one and the red black one is banging. I run some custom canvas suede joints...only 5 pairs made...hollla!

    Ok, I went over to the shoe building and of course forgot my camera. I'll put some thing up tomorrow.

    craig Posted: 9 years ago
  116. The K7's are sweet but not as cool as the new green/black/white accelerates. Accelerates are the collest shoes made they just need some lace protection.

    Jason Posted: 9 years ago
  117. what would it take for eS to get that custom thing goin on for the public? i imagine it takes a hella lotta work lol that'd be real hot tho. i'd get on that like no other. i got like 6 colorways for the accel plus i wish were out

  118. nubuck is cool! i was at my local shop and i felt the pj, and it felt cool it just doesnt look like it would be good. but it looks cool. but doesnt it like rip really fast?

    Marc Posted: 9 years ago
  119. Truehead- We are working on bringing some of special one off color ways to a few shops. Some shops make their own colors like Active, Fast Forward etc (when shops do that there are only like 300 pairs or so). We got some cool things in the works. We like the crazy stuff but some times it's to crazy but you'll see some good stuff coming out soon.

    Marc- The nubuck doesn't rip any faster than suede or leather. The cool thing about the pj colors is that when they start to wear out it doesn't look that bad. I rocked mine for a bit before I skated in them cause I wanted to keep them fresh for a bit before I started skating in them.

    Jason-Wait to you see the other color ways we are working on for Accelerate...so banging..subtle and dope

    craig Posted: 9 years ago
  120. that would be sick designing your own colorways? i really really really like the black green and white accelerates thats for damn sure you guys did a great job with that shoe keep it comin' its about time i ordered a new paor i was thinkin bout the tx's in black and white (my accelerates are shredded to hell) what do you guys at es think?

    james Posted: 9 years ago
  121. ya i like em. they look a lot stronger than the dam k6's. i might buy them if they last like the accels. its crazy that koston keeps getting new models out all the time.

    Josh L Posted: 9 years ago
  122. It is crazy but it keeps thing interesting besides Koston can run shit like that.

    James the Rodrigos are tough as hell with those lace loops and shit. If you haven't tried them they are worth trying for sure. The black white is a sick color. I'm kind of feeling the black red white ones just because it looks different. I haven't skated in the TX but I know dudes here that skate in them all the time.

    craig Posted: 9 years ago
  123. The K7 looks sweet but when is eS going to make some collaboration shoes like Lakai those would be the bomb

    Rafael Posted: 9 years ago
  124. hey craig, i heard something about some limited edition 10th anniversary es colorways. tell us whats going on with that

    oh yeah, skateboardrumors.com has some BS up about soletech consolidating the three shoe companys. whats up with that?

    Matt C Posted: 9 years ago

    Doug Posted: 9 years ago

    brent Posted: 9 years ago
  128. once again, where the hell is Pj Ladd's pro model!!!!!!!!!!

    Adrian Posted: 9 years ago
  129. those kostons are pretty dope. sike. maybe its just the colors.. you guys make the colors so techy sometimes.. but sometimes you guys do it good. like all the EK01 colorways are really nice. and the accel plus's are cool. koston makes the best shoes ever, in my opinion. keep it up koston your the shit!

    wesley Posted: 9 years ago
  130. Adrian. Once again, it comes out Spring 2006. You can see a picture of it when it is closer to being released.

    Josh P. Posted: 9 years ago
  131. well thanks for the advice craig im going to put in my order today, ive been wanting to try a new shoe for a while now i really like the accelerate, which is what im skating now, but its so heavy, i want to try something stronger too, and if the rodrigo is as strong as i think it is i think itll be the perfect shoe for me

    james Posted: 9 years ago

    Mr.McPoopie Posted: 9 years ago
  134. Hey i noticed that in the eS game of skate add on the eS site and in the new transwolrd koston's wearing the k7's but in white and black, but you said u only have those three up top and the red w/elephant skin, you gonna make the black and white a color way?

    C2daBlizzak Posted: 9 years ago

    Doug Posted: 9 years ago

    ttp://c.myspace.com/Groups/00000/66/76/736766_l.jpg" rel="nofollow">Check them out.

    Josh P. Posted: 9 years ago
  139. i think they should make some ad like this one:
    for the P.J shoe and when it comes out in some mag paste it in here.
    i think that is a good idea

    Alex Posted: 9 years ago
  140. You guys should check this news, the new colorway of k7 was already released in China one month ago.


    skatehere Posted: 9 years ago
  141. hopefully theyre better than the k5, and k4

    Stew Posted: 9 years ago
  142. LOL. Man those fakes don't look anything like the real K7. Wow.

    Josh P. Posted: 9 years ago
  143. well éS shoes are made in china (at least my TX's and EK-01's are) so isn't it possible that those are the real K7's? Those are probably just the prototypes that got made and some dude took pictures. They're not really released there.

    Justin Posted: 9 years ago
  144. Man those K7'a look awsome. Hope they aren't to expensive. Sucks about the k6.5's coming out next spring, by that time the k8's will proble be out. Also people need to stop bitching about the PJ1's., just wait till they come out.

    Eric Sh. Posted: 9 years ago
  145. just show the pj shoes theres no point not to they said in the news section pj is already skating in them so they obviously already have them.

    Kevin Posted: 9 years ago
  146. es should make some skinny shoes. my foots hella skinny but all the shoes are too fat. make some like the puma speedcat. those are sick i can actually tre flip in them

    Marc Posted: 9 years ago
  147. do the k7s have a full length internal eva midsole? must have cz the heel g2 bt i only skate shoes that have that like the accels and etc. i just bought txs and theyre really stiff i gotta break them in but i regret it lol i shouldve gotten another pair of accels since i like the feel the midsole isnt as thick and doesnt take long to break in with all the good padding in the right areas except i think the heelflip area and its nice and squishy cz the eva midsole

    k-fan Posted: 9 years ago
  148. i draw shoe models

    k-fan Posted: 9 years ago
  149. o yeah where are the 20th anniversary shoe colors?
    i saw an eS deck(yes a deck) of the 20th anniversary timeline thing on it at a skateshop in hongkong, i think the es team gave it to them when they went there like in january.

    k-fan Posted: 9 years ago
  150. craig is the black/white colorway suede or nubuck?

    k-fan Posted: 9 years ago
  151. o yeah and also in the new photo annual issue the photo of pj ladd switch bs 180 heel off the ramp in the white shoes, is that his model?

    k-fan Posted: 9 years ago
  152. k-fan Posted: 9 years ago
  153. k-fan Posted: 9 years ago
  154. how come all the fakes ive seen are usually in that wrapped stuff...the k7s look almost like the real ones except all i found different were on the reals ones theres another stitched layer on the back/heel part

    k-fan Posted: 9 years ago
  155. boring!

    matt Posted: 9 years ago

    augusta Posted: 9 years ago

    Alex Posted: 9 years ago
  161. i dont like the k7's they look like circa shoes and circa is gay. but i have a question is there going to be penny 3's

    diego Posted: 9 years ago
  162. It's not the FAKE, you just dont know how many eS factories located in China, here is a small shop which sells eS k7 new colors online in China, and there are more online shops like this, if you guys go to China, you will see that.


    Es_CHINA Posted: 9 years ago

    Adrian Posted: 9 years ago
  165. ive realized that some of the penny 2 dont have the heel lycra so did they take it out or is it that they are bootleg?

    Alex Posted: 9 years ago
  166. whats up with the tiger with a crown and the toungue out on this shoe?
    is it going to be a new clothes brand from Eric K.?
    NO offense

    Zopilallo Posted: 9 years ago
  167. no, koston owns 4star remember, those p2 are the low-versions and those k7 with elifant skin look like the almighty AJ3. So is there gonna be a mid-top of the k7 Craig? And when does Javi gets a page on the és site???

    owww and a cool fact y'all prob. don't give a f. about is that my initials are the e & s, yeahhhh ES 4 life.

    E.S. Posted: 9 years ago
  168. Pj is a fake ganster,
    didn't you guys saw that in the éS ads?
    The McCrank 3's where hot, although they never came out in the Netherlands.

    Joep Posted: 9 years ago
  169. Zopilallo Posted: 9 years ago
  170. whoever said p.j's a fake gang star obviously doesn't know wot they is talkin bout. k7's are fair sick but nothing will ever beat accels.

    ADL...SK8 Posted: 9 years ago
  171. make rubber toe caps

    Zopilallo Posted: 9 years ago
  172. whats up with trying to copy nikes elephant supreme print dunk? i see those kostons and those circas that have that same color way. whats up with that

    uhhhnthony Posted: 9 years ago
  173. it's been explained that rubber toe caps lose board feel, and it's just not worth it.

    Justin Posted: 9 years ago
  174. cud 1 of mans at es tell me if and when a re-vamped k3 is commin out cos im itchin and i had a dream about wot they looked like (they were nice)

    Tom Posted: 9 years ago
  175. is it jus me or do the k7's look like reebok G-units

    Tom Posted: 9 years ago
  176. Hmmm, why are you guys hating on the K6 so much. I was gonna buy those shoes (sorry éS). They're awesome. Simple and good. Thats how skate shoe's should be. I mean, as long as they skate well and are comfy, I'm fine with them.

    What's this I hear about a rubber toe cap? As long as the shoes give 100% in feel and performance, durabilty is second.

    You guys should make an Accelerate with a strap and some Accel Plus stuff on them. An Accelerate Plus would be sweet. Hey, you could even do those random skater picture on the tongues.

    éS footwear_is the best part.

    Pip Posted: 9 years ago
  177. that accelerate whit th navy/tan/red is pretty neat i mite buy it when it comes out

    Zopilallo Posted: 9 years ago
  178. Just got a pair of brown/pink k7s last night. so comfortable! Ready to skate right out of the box.

    lukass Posted: 9 years ago
  180. they don't have the es or the koston look

    Vaahtosammutin Posted: 9 years ago
  181. the navy and white ones are ok, but the others look gay because they have a stupid color thrown on them for no reason, you arent getting girls if you wear them put it that way. does anyone remember the es quattros? that shoe was so shitty but it looked fucking sweet.

    theaccelsarecooler Posted: 9 years ago
  182. Es_CHINA- those black and white es are sweet man i would any thing for those!!!! es u sould bring those color ways balck

    Alex Posted: 9 years ago
  185. they look dope hell close up, i saw them when he was at a demo in perth, austalia,
    i was well pissed and i walked out in the middle of the demo to give him a beer cause he jarred his wrist and he was sidelined. i think they would look styled in a lakers "white with gold n purple" colour scheme

    benny g Posted: 9 years ago

    k6s rock Posted: 9 years ago
  187. lukass- That color K6 is long gone. You might still be able to find it somewhere. Good luck!
