THESE! What the fuck were they? Dyrdek's right? I had a black pair my sophomore year I've been racking my brain about it for a while.

It's Dyrdek's second DC model from 1996. I had them in that same color. Loved them. They looked perfect. They were the coolest. I was so cool back then...


BTW - anyone has any pic from Colin Mckay's second shoe on DC. I am unable to find any photo. I remember they felt weird for the time. Like a futuristic aerobic boot. But that's all my memory can recall.




Not sure if that's his second or third. Scroll right, it's a huge pic.

Damn, nice find! I remember those Colin pro models now. Also, those dukes :o don't remember ever seeing them


Yes! Thank you very much. That page scan took me back in time. wow

wouldn't necessarily maim / kill / pay a small fortune to get another pair of those nowadays, but those are the skate shoes i have the fondest memories of. they were the first skate shoes i ever bought for myself as a kid with birthday money that weren't cheap vans / converse / even tennis shoes from chain sporting goods store (small town upbringing, closest skateshop had to be two hours away, no money for the real deal back when shoes were averaging 120 euros in the very early 2000's, no internet sales back then etc...). got them not too long after WHL came out and was really stoked on eS back then, they had the most amazing roster and now they had pj ladd. anyway those accel plus' managed to endure over three months of daily skateboarding, felt amazing, and i remember wearing them to a hotel around the time i was seeing my first girl so i must have had some good times in them in general. colorway may look funky & outdated by now but back then i was convinced the whole picture was the epitome of a proper skate shoe so fuck that !

That's McKay's third shoe. Never had them but was always blown away by how basketball they looked. Kinda looks like a weird Fila now but I gotta admit I like them. Always get stoked when I see them in footy. Drake Jones at Pier 7.

Sorry about the massive image.

I've got a pair in black/purple that I've worn about 4 times. Never really vibes with them.

TBH I bought them when they were 75% off and I bleached the purple parts.

What was the Es shoe that Arto was wearing in Menikmati that was navy blue with a reddish sole and the "es" in a white field? I always wanted those.


It was Ronnie Creager shoe.
WHY CAN'T SKATE SHOES LOOK LIKE THIS ANYMORE? paneled toe caps didn't deserve to be obsolete.

I would buy these so fast. They were nice bc they were slimmer than Accells, and skated beautifully. Just perfect imo, they should have never stopped producing this shoe. Someone bitch at Kelly Hart enough to get him to pull the trigger on a reproduction, and get Creager a check in the process.
At least when you're a washed-out hipster douchebag in NY, you can milk it at some decent looking, hard to skate spots. In LA you're just a tan-lined faggot in a school yard somewhere.

Not sure if that's his second or third. Scroll right, it's a huge pic.

Damn, nice find! I remember those Colin pro models now. Also, those dukes :o don't remember ever seeing them

I can't post a picture because of the data limit or whatever, BUT! I finally found a pair of the eS Edgars online from Martini skateshop. $16 and on my feet now. Life is so exciting sometimes!

Seeing those Ellingtons makes me wish he was still on Emerica. A revamped G6 model of the Ellington would be awesome.

Yup that is his third, and they skated great.

The two's look absolutely amazing though...

I would love to have some deadstock pairs of dc on that page. I had them all...

But man a pair of black syntax :(


I just bought a pair of old grey syntax, for 8 bucks.  Gonna try and restore them...
