Some new vegan éS skate shoes: Silo SC (white navy), Accel Slim Plus (white black), Accel Slim (navy red)
Skate shoe company éS has just come out with three new vegan colourways of the Silo SC, Accel Slim Plus, and Accel Slim, respectively. Thank you, éS! Just looking at the logo on the tongue of the Silo SC transports me straight back to the 1990s. Same (almost) goes for the way the soles of the Accel Slim look. Note that the Accel Slim Plus says "Microfiber" which may indicate better quality, compared to cheap polyurethane (cheap plastic) uppers, more like the type of durable vegan suede that is actually as durable as real animal-source suede, the type Etnies (or here) would use or the type Servant used to use - only here it doesn't seem to be vegan suede but rather vegan full-grain leather. I'm not sure, but microfibre suede may be more durable compared to microfibre full-grain leather. I think I will need to try these out. Silo SC first, for me.
Silo SC white navy(Note: ONLY this colourway) Check out éS instagram for more pictures.
DESCRIPTIONThe beautifully crafted SILO SC is a kickback to one of the top selling colorways of the infamous éS K1 1997. Integrating synthetic leather and mesh for breathability, built on a STI Energy Foam midsole and wrapped within a double cup outsole that éS pioneered for skateboarding in the 90’s. This combination of materials and colors brings emotions of the best times in skateboarding, and will continue to keep this legacy alive.
