Sizing: The Es accel slim skate shoes fit true to size. I got them in size us 9 that is my usual size. The shoe in the beginning may feel a little bit but affordably small in the toe area but after a day of wearing them you will realize that they will start stretching and feeling better. More specific, after one day of skating you will feel them more stretched for sure.
Boardfeel/Grip: The boardfeel and grip of the Es accel slim skate shoes are both pretty good. The shoes are flexible so you have more control with your board. You can skate it right out of the box.9/10.
Shape: I can say that the Es accel slim skate shoes keep their shape but as they are stretching they are becoming wider and they are losing a bit their actual shape. The toe area has a really nice shape for flicking the board and in general this slimmer version of the Es accel OG’s is a very nice shaped skate shoe. 8/10
Durability: Es footwear used triple stitching for the accel slim skate shoes but as it is not an one piece toe cup this means that after a certain amount of flips you will start seeing some wear and after a while it will become a hole. This will not happen easily if you will buy them in the leather edition and not in suede, although suede is the best material in my opinion.In any case you can skate the es accel slims for sure for a month, skating average 5 days per week.7.5/10
Cushioning: The cushioning of the the es accel slim skate shoes is difficult to be found. You almost have no cushioning at all and this shoe is mostly made for tech skating. The insole is a standard sti insole foam level 1 witch just provides you comfort while walking on this shoe. 7/10
Style: The Es accel slim is a stylish and simple shoe that you can wear whenever you want and not only when skating. It’s simple style bring you back the memories of the es accel Og’s and remind you a shoe of another era which has been modified to the today’s standards of skateboarding. Really like the way it looks.9/10
