Vegan éS skate shoes (2024 collection)


The first few colourways of the 2024 rehash of the 90s "The Muska" shoe were not vegan. However, now there's one vegan colourway (tan - green). This is the first and, to date, the only vegan shoe that has come out on éS in 2024.

The Muska "tan green"

Note: Only this colourway is vegan! As of 20 March 2024, it is available on the United States-ian and the Canadian éS websites but not the European version of the website. I'm not sure how durable the synthetic "action nubuck" is. I hope it's not the kind of synthetic nubuck that was used in the 1990s.

From the éS website:
"The most demanded éS shoe of all time - the iconic éS Muska - is back for a limited time. Few people have made such a huge impact in skateboarding as Chad Muska, AKA: “THE MUSKA”. Combining raw talent, personality and power, the Muska will fill every session with creativity and energy.

Some pics by The Muska himself. Note that the colours look a little different in some of the pictures. Only this one colourway (official name: tan green) is vegan.
These here in the photo are signed by Chad Muska. So, these MUSKA and 2024 marker pen tags aren't on the regularly available shoes.
