  16. Accels are the best shoes ever made. Never discontinue these shoes!

  17. PJ can got through a pair of Accel's in 3 days. But he skates A LOT!

    Tampa - Yes.

  18. what accel fo life said. i like the accels best before they were redesigned. but i still own three pairs of em

    nastasia Posted: 9 years ago
  19. but yes, they are still the best skate shoe!

    nastasia Posted: 9 years ago
  20. That should read "go through".

    Josh P. Posted: 9 years ago
  21. I like the new little tweat they did to the accel. The smaller toe cap and softer sole made them better than before. Accels are just the best because they are very affordable and they last long if you're not PJ Ladd.

    David B Posted: 9 years ago
  22. love them i had 2 pairs and 3 pairs of accel pluses

    skate4food Posted: 9 years ago
  23. the shorter toe cap rips faster how is that better

    accels fo life Posted: 9 years ago
  24. You guys should let people customize the accel like etnies is doing with the calicut. I will be in heaven if you guys ever do that.

    accels fo life Posted: 9 years ago
  25. why did you change the accel so much?
    i liked it before with the triangle ollie tread pattern, and also without sti foam i liked the arch support before and i have flat foot and kind of liked it the way it was before.

    Alex Posted: 9 years ago
  26. The Accels ae arguably the greatest shoe ever. I love em. There's something iffy about the accel plus though. They wear way quicker than normal accels but then i have been skating more lately.

    HOLLA BACL BOY Posted: 9 years ago
  27. i got 8 pairs of accel plusses. most comfortable shoe i've ever had to skate and chill in. im liking how thick the inner and tongues are now. that custom accel/accel plus shit would be fuego. i imagine that'd cost a lot tho. i'd have a field day with that tho haha

    truehead Posted: 9 years ago
  28. still not as cool as the boulala shoe...
    rock on es.

    Matt42892 Posted: 9 years ago
  29. hey i have a question. my accels are losing theyre flick(browntan sueade) and im very aggrivated. I cant do tricks like kickflip nosegrinds and kickflip shiftys. do you guys know of a leather shoe that doesnt crease and hurt your foot? thanks

    marc Posted: 9 years ago
  30. David B, you're talking like Elmer Fudd. ("tweat")

    garry Posted: 9 years ago
  31. who's elmer fudd? the accels have been, are and will always be_the best part. amen.

    Pimpero Posted: 9 years ago
  32. Matt- Boulala doesnt have a shoe right now

    Plan B_09 Posted: 9 years ago
  33. plan_b- he had one with osiris. you can still get them from utility board supply.

    Matt42892 Posted: 9 years ago
  34. elmer fudd is the cartoon who hunts bugs bunny. The accel kicks ass, ive had 4 pairs and one pair of the accel pluses. Gettin another pair soon. Ive never had a shoe that i've liked more or fits my style better. Ill buy accels till there out of stock.

    MattD_RI Posted: 9 years ago
  35. Bring back the EOS. They are amazing to.

    MattD_RI Posted: 9 years ago
  36. yea so why did the toe cap just get shorter?
    any benefits? or is it easyer to make

    SketcHyRollin564 Posted: 9 years ago
  37. ive never riden the same shoe twice, im going through trying different 1z out, my accels are defnitly in the top three, lovin the spring 06 line, keep it up.

    G - rant Posted: 9 years ago

    mandown88zz Posted: 9 years ago
  39. the accel is_ the best part

    justskate20 Posted: 9 years ago
  40. um, just an idea for the next colorway
    the old all brown color (lighter then the current one for this season line)

    teh brown suede one for the main pic of the contest,
    looks an awful lot like nubuck in that pick
    and it looks REALLY nice

    mabey an all brown accel in that same shade of brown in nubuck would look sick

    SketcHyRollin564 Posted: 9 years ago
  41. those shoes are awsome !! they got the perfect looks, are durable and they skate so good !! i just love them .. i can't skate without them

    le chaime Posted: 9 years ago
  42. Awesome. If they could only lower the price a little more, they could make a second killng with the accel!

    Wes H. Posted: 9 years ago
  43. what do you mean lower the price? one of the best damn things about the accel is the price to quality ratio...that made me sound like a douche

    sk8s_in_montucky Posted: 9 years ago
  44. yeah why did they changed them

    i like the new way better tho

    keep up the good work

    accelfolife Posted: 9 years ago
  45. That colorway looks awesome.

    Mikey Posted: 9 years ago
  46. ahhhhhh my shoes keeep falling apart! you guys need to make better grip, at least for the accel

    marc Posted: 9 years ago
  47. when are those square ones droppin? And Janoski needs to be on the team so he can make a fucking mind blowing shoe!
