The story of éS reads like an exciting novel with everything that belongs to it. Highs, depths, a madly rapid breakthrough and finally the surprising 'creative retreat' in the fall of 2012. Many new features and also team riders have reached legendary status as well as the unmistakable logo. In any case, the skate scene enjoys the return of the former giant and should be celebrated of course. Not only the past and the cult status should be considered, but also the incredibly good quality of the products which will in the future grace our feet and make any skater to reach bigger goals and thereby perhaps becoming a new legend.
Just like the original, the Sal is made with high quality and durable suede, long lasting 400 NBS rubber outsole for perfect grip and flick, and STI Polyurethane insoles for cushion. Years of skate R&D expertise have helped to create the new STI Energy™ Foam technology that absorbs downwards energy and rebounds upwards to increase comfort and pop.
éS was created to be a more sophisticated, athletically inspired, and innovative shoe brand focusing on street skating. The idea was to build a brand around a team and not the other way around. With skateboard legends like Tom Penny and Eric Koston onboard from day 1, it's no wonder the brand hit the ground running. Their top priority is to develop shoes that will help riders perform better and to make sure that skateboarding stays true to its roots.
