My very first pair of "real" skate shoes was a pair of eS K1's and fell in love. Then of course the K2's and so forth came out, but none of them really felt like the original K1's. This is honestly the closest I have come to that shoe since. The silo's are awesome.
Skated these for about twenty four hours total and the only noticeable wear is slight wear on the suede and fraying of the shoe laces. I super glue the seams after almost every use to preserve them. They’re a little narrow around the toe box even with sizing up half a size but all around a very comfortable and durable shoe.
They are really nice shoes but my left shoe came with a bend in the heel right out of the box so un skateable I didn’t put them back on. I sent pics of the damaged product and was sent an email days later asking me to X out the tags and send back the pictures but still waiting to see when I will get a new pair. I’m a big nine club listener and liked Kelly harts take on the es shoes so I went with one of your most expensive pair and expected really good things but so far just disappointment that I can’t skate $105 shoes that I purchased brand new with your company. This could be a 5 star review but I don’t know yet still giving you guys a chance.
