The Sal was designed in 1995 by skateboarding legend Sal Barbier. éS Footwear has taken the original design and reworked it to apply modern footwear technology and design techniques, whilst being sympathetic to the design and styling of the original silhouette. Such additional technology and advanced techniques include an impact resistant mid-sole and a durable cemented outsole with 400 NBS rubber. One of our favourite aspects of this new interpretation is the retention of the classic éS tongue detailing, I tip of the cap to the original design. One of the best reissues in a while and a truly excellent skate shoe.
