Perfect performance right out the box. Been waiting for the return of the interior sock, makes it fit and feel perfect without having to tighten the laces to an obscene amount. Cup sole durability with vulcanized flex and wear & tear is a slow process so far. Only thing, as with some other 'es I have had lately, is the laces could provide some more grip, as double knotting is necessary to prevent untying.
éS is excited to be re-releasing one of the most requested skate shoes in the history of skateboarding – The éS SLB. Designed by skate legend Salvador Lucas Barbier in 1996, the éS SLB is a timeless classic that encompasses style, function and pure beauty. As the first team rider on éS back in the 90’s, Sal has always had a huge influence on design and style within éS and the skate industry as a whole. Being the first skate shoe to feature an internal neoprene sock, éS continued to take innovation to new levels. Keeping the foot snug and locked into position, the sock helps to give extra comfort, support, and confidence in your skating.
- High quality leather with suede side panels
- Highly durable and flexible outsole that provides the perfect balance of protection and board feel
- STI Open Cell Foam insole for comfort and breathability
- Triple stitched toe piece for increased durability
Sal Talks SLB Mid
Buy one, first look, first test, and i decided to buy one more.... to éS team =>PLZ, create more colors ! So much confortable, so much style : '95 old riders' need more shoes like those !!! Thx éS and Sal B.
Great shoe. Fit, looks and board feel are all on point. I would prefer a bit better insole but I still rate this shoe five stars.
had to cop 2pairs, one to skate on, one to keep!
was super stoked when this colorway dropped, immediately copped them without hesitation!
It fits true to the size and it is very comfortable. It provides excellent boardfeel right out of the box. I feel that cushioning in the heel area could be better. Shoe comes with thin STI open cell foam insole and I think better option would be PU insole that is used in eS Accels and Etnies Marana.
Support is outstanding good board feel dont need to lace them all the way up the laces hold up for awhile before u actually need to change them just all around quality supreme comfort
