I love them! They are super comfortable and exactly the style that I was looking for. I have only been wearing them for about a month now, but they seem to be high quality. I should probably note that that I am pretty flat-footed, so the relatively low arch support is exactly what I needed.

I was trying to get away from the big and bulky skater shoes but I'm not really a fan of the thin ones because they aren't very comfortable. These shoes are a perfect blend of light and comfortable. I love the look of them too. Size runs a bit small, I usually wear a 10.5 but they were out so I got an 11 and they are perfect. My first pair of Globe shoes. I'm a fan!

I was disappointed with these shoes because the plastic panels in the toes started to rip through the canvas after about two months of wearing them. This happened on both shoes and at about the same time. Now there's a huge gash in the top of the shoes above where my big toe meets the ball of my foot. I love the look of these shoes, but the construction isn't up to par.

Firstly, I will say that I have had three pairs of this shoe. I like this shoe because it is reminiscent of the puffier skate shoes from a while back, which have always been my favorite style. The attached tongue to collar is awesome like the old Chet Thomas Globes. This shoe is fairly comfortable. I had the Fusion before it and the Sabre is slightly more comfortable to walk in. I felt that there was no support in the shoe so I added Superfeet insole to add support; the mix of the cushioning system in the shoe with the support of the insole was excellent. As I mentioned earlier, I have had three pairs of this shoe, and that isn't by choice. The first pair I had have oddly been the ones that have outlasted the other two that were purchased later. I liked the first ones enough that I wanted a second pair in another color. So I ordered them, and the heel airbag popped within a couple weeks, I was really disappointed. Then, I got my third pair, which lasted longer than the second, but popped after a few months. It is too bad, because I really like this shoe. I don't know if it is a design flaw or something; maybe I just have bad luck, I'm not directly blaming Globe. But this has been my experience with this model. Overall, love the design, runs a full size small in my opinion, no support, fairly well cushioned, and have had heel airbag problems with two of three pairs. And, as always, Zappos is the best.

The shoe is good looking, basic skateboard style shoe. The problem I have is that the vamp area is too narrow, rubs against toes, causes abrasions. I don't know if this is a problem with the last; or, the overly clever attempt at no-tongue construction. There's a lot of material down in the lower "tongue" - and it is thick, really thick. Could be a problem with either; or, both. I do not have wide feet and have never had to buy a wide shoe.

A five star shoe with one star comfort! I wasted my money! I bought two pairs -- and am not happy! Sure these are kicky-looking, fashionable and trendy but not everyone wears socks and so....the two labels inside each shoe plus the scratchy sewing inside the shoe plus the fact that my toe was rubbed raw from the non-yielding scratchy cloth that cut into it every time I flexed my foot when I walked -- make me ready to throw these out! I removed the labels, I added Moleskin to the area that was badly cutting into my toe (but the moleskin rolled itself up and made things even worse) and I still have to put up with scratchy sewing inside these shoes. What a disappointment!

Poor quality. I bought these as an around the house casual shoe/slipper. For that purpose they fit the bill. They're comfortable. easy to slip on, got a little style to them, etc. Overall I was pleased. However, I look down at my feet today to find that the stitching that connect the tongue of the shoe to the side has totally come undone on my right shoe. After less than two months! Heck I don't even know if I've worn these outside! Just around the house at the end of the day and already they're coming apart! Lame! I wouldn't recommend.

Comfortable fit well. Looked just as good as the pictures in person. I'm a size 12 and do need to tighten the laces real well to get a snug fit. Makes the laces really long. Other than that very happy with purchase. Great price too.

Worst item I ever bought from Zappos… I wear a size eleven shoe and these socks hardly reach above the back of the shoe. After wearing them for a short while, they slip below the entire back of the shoe and become very uncomfortable...

The Encore is my favorite skate shoe and favorite sneaker of all time - they are very comfortable, are not too puffy or bulky like many styles, and last for a very long time. I am waiting and waiting for the day when they will make the black on black color scheme (with black soles) again (and if they ever do, I am stocking up). I am about to buy these and color them in with permanent marker, it's been too long! I have a pair of the globe pulse currently, but nothing compares to the fit, durability, and style of the Encores.

Awesome looking shoe. I usually wear a size 13, yet on these shoes my pinky toe hits the sidewall and is unwearable. They don't have the size 14, so I guess I'll return them. It's a shame because they look awesome and would otherwise be very comfortable. Pretty bummed I have to send back. I don't think I have wider than normal feet, so I'm not sure if they are just narrower than others or slightly smaller than advertised, but they don't fit. I would recommend getting a half size larger than your normal size.

This is definitely a casual shoe and not a slipper. Not very comfortable if you try to wear without socks and too "clunky" for around the house.

This shoe is awesome, this is the second pair Ive bought and its now my go to shoe, especially for work since I'm on my feet all the time and they're very nicely padded just about everywhere. I stay simple with the black on grey and the black on brown but they have tons of choices. One thing Id say is to order a size up from what you normally wear. A lot of reviews for this shoe said to do that and I did and they fit perfectly. Worth the $!

This shoe has an awesome look and is fairly comfortable. They felt a tad narrow at first but seemed to widen the second time I wore them. It's very versatile and looks great with Jeans or khakis. I receive compliments every time I put them on. Great buy and great service from Zappos.

Great shoe, thicker and offers more protection than a typical skate shoe. But still gives you the feel you need. Has a one piece sole and those always last longer if your soles typically split from the side of shoe.

This is a great cruiser. It's smooth and it's low center of gravity encourages you to "go for it!" My Chocolate Lab also loves to tow me on it at the park.

While I haven't skated in over 10 years, I still swear by globes for my casual shoes. By far the most comfortable shoes I've owned and they're built to last. I'm a standard 12.5, but always size up to the 13 in Globes, always fit great.

Very comfortable shoes after a brief break in period. Liked how they looked as well. After about a month of daily wear the sole on the right shoe broke and started separating from the sides. At first it just meant that my right foot got wet on rainy days but now (4 months) the whole sole is coming off. The left shoe is still in great shape so hopefully just a fluke. Worth noting - these shoes aren't great for skating - I tore through the ollie spot in about 2 weeks worth of sessions.

Awesome support. Best summer show to wear with out socks. Inside felt kind of like Super Feet that you would put in a hiking boot.

I love the Globe Pulse, this is my 3rd pair. I wear shoes until they're completely falling apart, and Globes can last a long while. My last pair lasted 2 years before all the support in the sole ran out. This pair is a little more snug, but I think I'm not used to the cushioning being so fresh. If you want a great, comfortable, laid back shoe, you can't go wrong!

Order a full size bigger than what you wear! I can not stress this enough. That being said they're really comfortable.
