Kellen James found himself a new shoe sponsor after the shutdown of eS Footwear in 2011. Check out the introduction video Osiris put together for Kellen above.
Sk8Mafia put together this dope commercial for the latest colorway of eS’ Square Two. eS has a long-standing tradition of combining technology and function to bring you shoes equipped to handle any kind of skating you put them through. And, with Kellen James being at the forefront of tech skating, that should stand as enough proof that the Square Two is no exception.

You took the American skateboarding world by storm. What planet did you come from?
Did not know that. I come from Nocomplytron, in a small village called Casperville, but actually Sweden.
Why did you choose the song “Sticks And Stones” by Jónsi for your Newsoul Skateboards Promo?
I love Jónsi, and I wanted a different kind of feeling in my skate part, so I went with “Sticks and Stones.” It´s not the most usual choice for a skate part, but it seemed to fit me.
Okay so everybody wants to know, where did you get that Elmo sweater?
Yeah, that Elmo sweater. I spotted it at H&M in Linköping with a friend, and it was a must buy. Elmo rocks!
