ES Accel - Black / Suede (Spring 2009)

The ES Accel came out almost 15 years ago, and since then has lived up to its status as the most popular ES offering.

Here is a closer look at the ES Accel – Black / Suede.

The basic look of the shoe makes it both timeless and classic in design. The black suede upper features all-around black double stitching and black metal eyelets. Notice the triple stitching on the toe cap in a triangle ollie pattern. The black midsole and light brown outsole, both made of 400 NBS gum rubber, complete the design.

Aside from the classic design, the high quality construction is really what makes the Accel such a popular skate shoe. The Daewon 10 cushions your heel with a System G2 gel insert and an STI foam Level 2 footbed cushioning system. The sneaker also offers a breathable tongue, an EVA sole, and elastic tongue-centering straps for more comfort.

The shoe even provides support systems invisible to the eye, such as the hidden TPR rubber underlay and lower lace loops.
