Welcome to today’s history lesson: Sal Barbier has been a pivotal personality in skate style, fashion and design for over 20 years. As one of the pioneers of 90’s street skating, Sal had pro boards on H-Street and Plan B – two of the most influential board companies of that period. Although his first pro shoe “Sal 23” was an etnies model, Sal’s style on and off the board lent itself perfectly to the launch of éS in 1995. The Sal 23 pro model has remained one of the most iconic and demanded pro shoes ever created. To commemorate Sal being the first pro skater to ride for éS, the company reintrodes this limited edition slimmed version of the Sal 23 called the Sal 20.
