After the return of one of the most iconic models of all time, it only makes sense to release a legendary shoe that never was.
éS is continuing to make waves, and with those waves comes the ever-growing responsibility of growing a product. Between team additions forming at a slow pace and the limited shoes in their catalog, there isn’t a better time than now for éS to release a shoe that many are familiar with, yet haven’t skated. Also, take into consideration the return of the rubber toe cap. The Kellen James shoe wouldn’t look too out of place in today’s marketplace given the recent acceptance of skateboarding’s staple shoe element of the past.
Obviously, the missing piece of the puzzle is getting KJ back on éS. Who’s to say that he didn’t catch feelings after the brand’s unexpected hiatus…? Whatever the case is, if éS gets KJ back, the future of éS looks more promising than ever. Petition anyone?
