éS is excited to be celebrating 20 years of 100% commitment to skateboarding, design and innovation by relaunching the legendary Sal 23 as a slimmed down limited edition Sal 20. Have a look at the video (above) with archival footage, new clips and Sal breaking down the Sal 20’s design process.
Sal has been a pivotal personality in skate style, fashion and design for more than 20 years. As one of the pioneers of 90s street skating, Sal earned pro boards with H-Street and Plan B – two of the most influential board companies of that era.
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 skate shoes ever created.
This shoe is available at finer skate shops around the world today. Check out the shop locator on esskateboarding.com to find a shop carrying them in your area.
Dan Broad is a veteran skater and graphic designer from London and over the last five years he’s been researching, collecting and re-drawing hundreds of skateboard company logos from the 70s to the mid 90s. From this work, he’s designed and screen printed a series of three limited edition prints and he’s released them under his company Backpull.
There have been many amount of skateboard brands over the last 40 or so years, some large and well known, others smaller, more underground or short lived. These awesome prints don’t champion any one single company, but they commemorate as many as possible within each era. This is by no means a complete history, but more of a collection of some of Dan’s (and our) favorite logos from the 70s, 80s and mid 90s all designed within a shaped deck from each respective era.
A percentage of all Backpull profits from the sale of the prints will go to skateboard causes in the UK, such as helping fund the resurfacing of a local ramp or donating to skate related charities. Basically, whoever could do with a helping hand and is doing something positive so that people can enjoy and benefit from skateboarding.
