ACCEL SLIM MID
To be honest this shoe felt as if it was better quality for multiple reasons.
Fit was snug regardless of the shoe being slimed up.
Round laces are a plus for durability. Not to also mention the suede holds together well.
Quality of rubber has increased based off of grip -tape abrasion.
I’ve never been a high top person, but these mids feel really nice on the ankles while skating. They do need some breaking in to get the suede and sole a little more flexible, but that’s normal. It only took a few days as with most shoes. I will say my only complaints with the shoe are 1) the laces don’t stay tied for long, and 2) the insoles are a no go, they are thin, not supportive at all, and also a pain to rip out of the shoe. Grab some fp insoles or some other ones you like, and stick em in the shoe. I had some old vans pop cush insoles so I used those and felt much better wearing the shoes around and cruising on my board.
So sick, stylish, quality
Fits like a glove and the compression really helps during long skating sessions
