History of the eS Accel Slim

The Accel Slim is a modern take on the brand’s most famous product and one of the most iconic skate shoes in history, the Accel. Designed by eS founder Pierre André Senizergues, the Accel was introduced in 1995.

The original Accel shoe had a bulky construction in a low cut profile. A sufficient amount of padding on the footwear’s interior parts gave wearers supreme cushioning. Due to its quality of style and comfort, many skaters in the ’90s owned a pair or two. Its popularity is not limited to the average enthusiasts, as a number of professional skaters are also seen rocking the eS Accel.
