Tom Penny is back on E’s footwear bust out the Accels

Bust out the brown Accels because Tom Penny is back on E’s footwear. Increased typographic confusion aside, (is it Es, E’s eS or éS?), this is fantastic news. The most iconic and influential UK skateboarder of all time rejoining the skater-owned shoe co that he started out with? YéS please.
Joking aside, we’ve always found it difficult to associate Tom Penny with any other brand regardless of his sponsorship situation. Whilst Supra might have been paying him to wear their cricket pad moon boots, in the eyes of those who care, he was always destined to run éS again.
Sole Technologies, the mother brand of Etnies, Emerica and éS, dropped the news that Tom Penny is back on E’s footwear via their Instagram after rumours based on Teeps photos had suggested this news was coming.
I’m not entirely sure where this leaves the once mighty moon boot brand but that’s not our problem.
The insta clip that accompanied the news delighted the global Cult of Tom with some very recent and very dope footage of the mid 40’s wizard casually banging out perfect flip tricks down stairs like he was a teenager. Select ‘Heroes’ by David Bowie on your chosen music transmission device, lace up the Accels and go switch frontside flip a double set with your eyes shut in celebration. The Wizard has come home.

Tom Penny's back on E's footwear

In related éS news, Last week saw a banger of a release featuring the varied and undeniable talents of the European éS squad. éS Terminal 001 clocks in at just shy of 7 minutes and is packed with amazing skateboarding. Filmed by various heads and unified as a complete edit by Euro marketing bod and good friend of Black Sheep, Kevin Parrott – this is no throw away Euro trash montage. With UK representation from Dougie George and MK ledge-end James Bush sitting alongside cameos from Spanish skate royalty Enrique Lorenzo and book ended with some off the charts pop/tech from the ever nattily-dressed Marcus Shaw, this is a deffo must-watch. Big up éS for supporting this group of pan Euro belters.
