I stocked up on some Sals a few months back when I found them on sale for $25 each and I'm digging them.

Nice.
Definitely not the way to handle this article. I'd say Jenkem did a service to core brands by giving some good insight into the minds of young skaters. You may be enraged by their thought process on shoes (I am), but they are your demographic like it or not so better start catering to them with flimsy cheap slip-on sweatshop garbage sold through Amazon.

I started wearing eS again when they rereleased the OG Accels. I loved that shoe and love it again now. I have several pairs stashed in the likely they stop abruptly being produced. I do realize that most skaters these days aren't into beefy padded shoes without giant logos like I am.
I seriously don't know how everybody skates in Vans Slip-Ons and Chucks.
The Warm Up Zone. Let's watch some skateboarding videos.

I've tried on some Es in the last couple years and they never seemed to fit right. Usually too narrow but I've been happy with Emerica in the past. I just got a pair of G6s and they look great. It's very tough to having enough buying power to work with quality factories and have competitive prices while only selling to skaters. If you have 1 shoe in 1 color and you need to stock 12 sizes with a 200 shoe minimum per size you see where you can eat up a lot of cash really quick.

I've tried several times to contact them regarding sizing questions and they never got back to me. I'm assuming their customer service is non-existent. It makes me wonder what other aspects of the company are neglected.

I think yall reaching. To me it feels like a grass roots tongue in cheek way of marketing your brand.

If the remakes of either Sal have the old sizing, I'd buy those. I don't want slim lookalikes

i haven't skated a pair of eS in almost 10 years but they were my favorites back in the day. i'm stoked to see they're doing something and would definitely try a pair. i can see why the kids are into the simple aesthetic cause i dig it too. i always wanted to skate small vulc shoes like slips and shit but most often that kinda shoe just hurts my feet. the figgys are my go to for a shoe that's simple but also supportive. these kids just dont know how good emericas are

my fave eS:

I had a pair of 'eS with a defect, wrote their FB, and they shipped a new pair to me in about 3 days. They're okay in my book.

Not a single shoe on the es website jumps out at me.  They all look mediocore at best in my opinion.  They really need to come up with something new, when have you ever seen a company succeed that never evolves?  If you don't change with the times you will fail.

Did they let some summer intern get a hold of the social media account? Jesus Christ “ check us out of you get a chance” is the number one phrase of sponse kids and lifestyle brands annoying others on Instagram

I was completel swept up in the release of the OG accels, but simply can't shake that they ditched their entire team only to reboot a short while later.

I'm pretty sure they are, Sal had a post a few months back about if you liked the slim tongue OGs or the puffy tongue one, so I assume they're working on that.

I hope Jenkem publishes something about wheel brands so we can get some prime IG comments from Wayward
