Bam Margera recently popped up again after a several-year spirit quest-esque hiatus. Between some mini ramp footage, an Epicly Later’d and a Nine Club appearance, Bam seems to be back on some skate shit and making moves again.
Throughout Bam’s comeback footage, we’ve been keeping an eye on what’s been his go-to skate shoe. Considering his time away from skating, the footwear spectrum has changed significantly and there was no telling whether he’d adjust to the times or stay true to his era’s definition of a skate shoe. After bits of skating a half cab here and miscellaneous shoes there, we noticed that Bam couldn’t keep his feet out of the OG Accel.
As a result, it looks like Bam is currently drafting up versions of his upcoming colorway with éS. Scheduled for Fall’18, Bam looks to take his signature black/purple combo and introduce a new logo throughout this mainstay team model.
There’s no doubt that his career and contributions have been acknowledged and equally celebrated throughout skateboarding, but will a Bam shoe sell? Moreover, if so (which we’re betting it will) does a pro of his caliber single-handedly reignite the Puffy Skate Shoe Comeback?
Only time will tell…or more specifically, Fall 2018.
