Shoe of the Week : eS Accelerate

Company : eS
Skater : Team (which is already nasty and growing)
Construction : The Accelerate skate shoes from eS offer a supportive, impact-resistant cupsole with a durable suede and nubuck upper that's perforated on the sides and vamp for breathability. Designed to mirror the original Accel shoes that started it all. The Shack is stoked to be one of the select shops that has been invited to join in the eS family and with new offerings such as this shoe its no wonder why. When eS left skateboarding it was because their place in the market was overrun by running shoe brands that have been staging a coup against skater owned and operated companies. A little over a year ago now the guys at Sole Tech decided enough was enough. While the running shoe companies are still looming largely over a heavily contested industry Sole Tech decided to keep taking the fight to them. Between eS , Etnies, and Emerica, the Sole Tech brands are aggressively presenting good looking skateable alternatives to its former loyal customer base who is growing tired of the same old running shoe inspired models the larger sporting goods corporations  are offering. This new black/white/orange model will be available in our store this week and online shortly after so do yourself and skateboarding a favor and say no to the Nike/Cons/Adidas bs and go back to supporting the core. As always heres a nice reminder video to reward those who were patient enough to read through my rant. Oh and it just so happens to be one of the best if not the best skate video of all time........enjoy.
