Peter and Stephen Hill founded Hardcore in 1984 and rapidly expanded it to become one of the world’s largest skateboard distribution companies. At the time, the Hills were professional skateboarders who were dissatisfied with the quality of skate and snow products available in Australia, so they went into business to import the best from the USA.
Through constant film productions, promotions, tours, contests, video and magazine advertising, Hardcore became the driving force behind the skateboarding explosion during the mid 80’s in Australia.
In 1994, along with brother and current GLOBE CEO Matt Hill the GLOBE brand was created. After 10 years of design, production and distribution with Hardcore it was time to create a global brand. First with shoes for skaters and surfers, and then with apparel and hardgoods for the broader boardsports market.
Fast forward to today and the same crew of skaters, surfers and snowboarders that started the business back in the 80’s has grown to a global network of counter culture artisans that are united by board sports, street fashion, media, design, and film.

I am a female who is usually about a 7 to 7 1/2 in shoes. Someone I work with had a the female version of the Castro, but I could not find any black ones for females anywhere. So I got a 6 in man sizing! I love them! I have two pair, a black and a tan pair, which I of course got from Zappos! They're comfortable and so warm that I have been wearing them without socks during the winter months, and my feet are so warm they're sweating!Read more » « Show less January 19, 2011 by Meredith

Bought as gift. My son loves them. The quality is excellent. It's a casual shoe, not a slipper. And can't say enough about Zappos service. The best!

My son has these in black, gray and pinstripe. He loves them, They are almost all he wears. He needs a 15 so it is nice that Zappos carries large sizes you cannot find in stores! His foot is a bit wide, and these fit great!

These shoes right out of the box just look amazing! Stiff on the foot at first but I have been wearing these for 6 hours and they have leveled out very nicely. The fur or sheep's wool on the top extends all along the top of the shoe which has kept my feet very warm. The color is a bit darker than the picture but not by much. This shoe is like a moccasin but better because of the sweet rubber globe sole. These look amazing with jeans and are super comfy! If you have doubts, get them. You won't be disappointed. I wear a 10.5 usually and got the 10's. They fit snug at first but now they are great.

This particular colorway of the castro is a shade darker in every respect. Be warned if you are looking to get the exact color pictured, because its not the same, in fact it looks really different. OK, aside from that the fit is true to size and after use the shoe will make more room. This shoe isn't good for physical activity past walking in as they will slip off your feet no matter what. These have shearling lining all in the roof area of the inner part of the shoe for a nice warm fit. The shoe is completely outfitted in soft high quality leather suede and the stitching is very well done. The sole is a thick midsole and will last for a long time. Overall the comfort, quality and style is superior to any other imitation out there...DC and any other skate shoe that is trying to copy Globe. Stick to the original on this one.
