Eye squash shoes! These are called Eye S Line shoes. Eye shoes were first spotted on Paul Coll, and over the past couple of years, Eye has signed more players to wear their shoes, including Greg Marche, Diego Elias, Karim Abdel Gawad, and Declan James.
Eye are releasing some new colorways for 2018/2019. Here’s a trailer:
Below are the previous Eye models from 2016/2017.

Here are some comments from Squash Source reader JLB:
I have now had the eye shoes for approximately 5 months. They are more durable than the salming, in the fact that the sole is still holding together, however, the plastic type covering around the toe has now been torn through (this went after about 2 months of playing 2/3 times a week). I shall hopefully send a picture through to show the damage. But they are comfy, tight at first as i’ve got quite wide feet, but they are wonderful to move around in. Similar to the salming viper.
Greg Marche was wearing these at the Nantes International in 2017:

Thanks to Bernard and Teariki for the tips!
There was a previous model called the Eye X.Lite shoes, spotted back in May 2016. Thanks to Carlos for the tip!
Note: there’s also an Eye X.Lite series of rackets, so the naming choice was a little strange. I’m glad they switched it up for the Paul Coll models.
