The eS Sal 20 skate shoes are based on Sal Barbier's original pro model first released in 1995. Triple needle stitching at the toe cap is reinforced with a layer of rubber in the ollie area for lasting abrasion resistance. The thinly padded tongue is perforated for breathability and features an internal neoprene forefoot wrap to lock your foot in for precise board control. The upper sits atop a flexible cupsole with a 400 NBS outsole for grip.
