éS Footwear - Since 1995, éS has been at the forefront of high-performance skateboarding, propelling the design of skate footwear and apparel into a highly athletic and technically advanced realm. Today, the éS legacy of leadership continues with innovations embedded in the stylish and technical skate shoes. The éS team is committed to delivering the best performing skate shoes to minimize the risk of injury and maximize skate time via advanced support, durability, cushioning and grip. éS was developed as a more technically-oriented line compared to etnies and other brands at the time, in both aesthetic and function. Skateboard pro Sal Barbier left etnies and joined éS to launch the brand and design shoes, and brought his popular Sal 23 model to éS, as well.
