Twenty years strong, Sal Barbier's third signature pro model from eS has been revamped to give you that classic style you know and love, further enhanced with advanced skate technology. Your foot is going to fit like a glove in these thanks to the molded tongue with an ergonomic arch that provides a naturally comfortable fit. The collar padding is more dense around the heel to lock in your foot so that your shoes won't be slipping off your feet.

eS is constantly merging skateboarding technology and footwear closer together by sharing technology. The SLB '97 utilizes a unique toecap comprised of thermothane, which is a similar composite to the urethane used in skate wheels. So there you have it, you have the durability of skate wheels protecting your toes. Innovation at its finest.

  • Cupsole
Primary Upper Materials
  • Suede
  • STI Ortholite Open Cell Foam Insole
  • Thermothane™ Ollie Pad
  • TPR Toe
  • Gum Rubber Outsole

Cupsole - Cupsoles are durable, well-cushioned and provide the best impact protection against hard landings. The sole consists of a single rubber layer, reinforced with glue then stitched to the upper. Cupsoles generally last longer than vulcanized soles, but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.


STI Ortholite Open Cell Foam Insole - STI Ortholite insoles provide long lasting comfort, moisture wicking, breathability and antimicrobial qualities to keep your feet fresh.

Thermothane™ Ollie Pad - Thermothane™ is a minimal, lightweight and durable synthetic provided to protect against abrasion and in turn increase the life of your shoe.

TPR Toe - Incredibly strong material strategically placed at the toe to extend the life of your shoes.

Gum Rubber Outsole - Made from 400 NBS Gum Rubber giving the shoe long lasting, durable grip.

wish the soles lasted a bit longer. If so, I would buy no other shoes.

Had them for 3 days now and they feel really amazing. Great boardfeel, toe piece is lasting well. Nice to support one of the few skater owned footwear brands.
