Globe Pulse is a great shoe by itself but add the Jason Ellis brand which brings the carbon fiber look to it and you have a shoe that's awesome enough to wear in awesome world. Red dragons!

Usually I go for the DVS Volaris but I decided to try another brand just to change things up. I first got these shoes in a size 13 (my normal size) and found that they ran small. This was a width problem, but instead a length problem because my toes smashed into the toe of the shoe. Thankfully, Zappos was awesome and exchanged the shoes next day for the size 14. After waring these shoes now for just over a week I've got a blister on my foot the size of a quarter and my heels are killing me. Moreover, the little Globe insignia on the back of the shoe started coming off 3 days after I got them. I truly dislike these shoes, which is sad because my first pair of Globes about 10 years ago (Chet Thomas Pro Model) were really comfortable and really tough. To anyone considering these shoes, just get a pair of DVSs and you'll be much happier and they're only a little more.

Best shoes ever - they are not for skating, but they are for style, all girls like it on campus. Some kids asked where to get them and I said Zappos.com.

Brands I'd also recommend: DvS osiris and glove are the best styling shoes

This shoe is exactly what I wanted. A skate shoe that was a little different. Very light and comfortable.

Run small. All my shoes for the past 2-3 years have been 10.5 and this shoe was way too tight to even try and just wear them in.

Great, basic shoe. Lots of padding, basic, comfortable fit. I\'ve had mine for about 10 months or so, and I still love them. Wouldn\'t recommend them as a skate shoe though, too much of a wedge, running style sole.

I've now owned and worn this shoe for a long time, and although it is probably about time that I get another pair...I refuse! These shoes have been so comfortable and held up their good looks for many months. When I do buy another pair, hopefully there will be enough stock of these left.

The fit was slightly tight, but I expected as much since my feet are as wide as water skis, however after a couple days they broke in perfectly. I was somewhat bummed when I noticed that the tred that wraps up the heel was loose on the edge (poor glue job), but it\'s not like they cost me a bone either. 8 out of 10.

Awesome shoe. It’s extremely comfortable and looks pretty nice, too! I have to be honest though. The best thing about the transaction for me though was Zappos’ service. I had read a bunch of reviews saying the shoe was X sizes too big, or X size too small and based on the average I ended up ordering my regular shoe size. Sure enough, they arrived, and didn’t fit well. GET A SIZE BIGGER THAN YOU ACTUALLY WEAR! In any event, Zappos was so fast with their shipping that I had my replacement shoes within days of my actual original order that I had to replace. Sometimes I think this company has a warehouse on every street corner. I’m always blown away by their service which is why I keep coming back. Thanks Zappos!

First pair of Globe shoes I've purchased from Zappos, and I love them. Before these I was wearing a similar pair of DVS, but the soles fell apart quickly. This pair looks great and they pretty much go with anything I'm wearing. Very comfortable and sturdy, whether you're using them to skate or just chill.

These shoes are great! Globe makes a very durable shoe. I'm no skater though. I plan on buying this same shoe again in the same color so I have a back up pair after this shoe get discontinued.

Shoes run one full size smaller than most. I usually wear a 12.5 or 13. 13 did not fit and had to swap for 14. Now that I have the right size, these shoes are great. Very comfortable. Good arch support. Good looking shoes.

These shoes are great. Sturdy like a skate shoe, and comfortable enough for just kickin’ it. I usually wear a 9.5. I ordered a 9 and they fit snug, but they do fit.

These are very cool looking shoes. They are fairly comfortable. Only issue is you can feel the elastic bands that hold the tongue in place. Great buy otherwise

I have had these shoes for a little while now and I really like them. They are stylish and comfortable. They seem pretty durable and made pretty well. I have been blowing through shoes pretty quickly because I wear casual shoes every day to work. I move around a lot and have been known to destroy shoes in about 2 months. I think these might be durable enough to last longer than the DVS shoes I normally buy.

Good purchase. Although, I don't particularly care for the look - my son (20 yrs. old) loves them. They are comfortable and look decent enough to wear out to dinner in place of the puffy skateboard shoes that go untied. Globe quality is usually good - fit is good - I'd pay for them again! As always - THANKS ZAPPOS!

Nice and comfy shoes! I bought my normal shoe size and at first they were a bit tight, once broken in they were perfect, however. Good cushioning and they're really light like runners shoes. All in all, great shoes, I've already gotten multiple compliments on them!

I have had a pair of these in brown for over a year, and they have held up wonderfully. I recently purchased another pair to use as "nursing shoes" and even after 8-10 hours on my feet, running around, they're still comfortable and so are my feet. Often wear skate shoes for the width; these are true-to-size, and VERY durable.

Finally Found a Good One! After the last couple of pairs of shoe's that I've owned (feeling a little let down), I'm so glad that I found these! I buy a big shoe, size 14. Despite my feelings about shoe companies not designing shoe versions for big feet, these feel great. They're comfortable when you first put them on in the morning. They're comfortable throughout the day, and when you take them off at the end of the day. Your feet still don't feel tired. The walls of the shoe are thick but not too stiff, and not too soft. The heel has a bunch of padding, and so does the tongue. It's a great shoe! Looks wicked in gray. The pictures on the website don't do this shoe justice. The shape is a little more pointed when you get the pair on your feet. They remind me of what a driving shoe looks like.

A great buying experience - First I was disappointed because the all black model was always out of stock in my size. I decided to give in and get the all white model. I am pleased with the how quickly the product arrived and the quality of the shoe, just as if it were in a store, no difference. I'll definitely be buying from Zappos again!
