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.

Zappos service was excellent, as usual! The shoes ran on the small side. I usually wear a 10.5 but they were tight and I feel like I should've ordered a half size larger.

After receiving a defected pair, Zappos came through and sent me a brand new perfect pair of these. I had the black and white version and I absolutely love them. Big thanks to Zappos customer support for exchange. Globe makes great shoes and I am glad Zappos is one of their distributors. I will order more from Zappos from now on.

I take a 13 with my DVS Throttles and other DVS shoes. Based on reviews here I bought a 14 in these globes, but they were much too large. I returned them for 13's and they are slightly snug but fit better overall. 13.5 would be perfect but they don't exist. The globes are better in almost every other way. Feel like a skate shoe but they're classier looking. I'm a convert. 6'2" and 185 lbs.

Why did they change these shoes? They were great until my 5th pair now suddenly they are way too small. Now they are a size and a half too small for me. What a shame.

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!

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.

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.

I have Fred Flintstone flat and wide feet and these shoes fit. I put them on after wearing dress shoes for work all day and I could immediately feel the comfort. I did change out the blue laces for black laces and its a bit more subtle. Great shoe. And as always ordered yesterday and wearing em today. Zappos rocks.

Ordered these for my son without him seeing them (he only will wear Globe Brand). Always risky buying for a guy. He wanted the shoe to be completely black. A hard to find item, as most shoes have some splash of color (which he does not like - word to designers, here. I have had to return lots of shoes that did not measure-up). He is wearing them. Nuff said.

Buy them. Buy them for comfort. Buy them for the retro look. But buy them 1/2 size larger. Over and out.

I've owned a pair of the Globe Pulse before buying my current pair from Zappos. They are a very comfortable and durable shoe. I used to wear my old pair daily for over a year and a half and they are still in one piece. I bought a different color scheme this time around and I get a lot of compliments for them. The black "carbon fiber" stripes are a nice, subtle touch. The shape itself is somewhere between an old-school running shoe and a skate shoe without looking too chunky. Overall a nice shoe for casual wear.

These shoes are awesome. The felt about a half size smaller (I wear a 13) but not small enough for me to be uncomfortable. Very stylish and seem of quality. The night after I got them I wore them to a house party and had probably 7 or 8 girls tell me how nice they were. That alone right there is worth the money these things cost.

So I've got two pairs of these and that should pretty much say it all. What it doesn't say is that I use these for my eight hour barista shifts and they're the only shoe I've used that doesn't make my dogs bark. In fact, these cleared up a lot of pain I was having left over from other, less supportive kicks. They do seem to run small, but they'll also break in after about a week or two of heavy wearing, leading to the most perfect fit you even stuffed your foot into. It's a super solid shoe, oh and it's got steeze for days.

These shoes are very well made and very comfortable. They form to and support the foot well, though I do wish, as with all Globe sneakers, that the arch support was higher/better - though I may have a higher arch than most. Insoles after a few months of wear work well. Globe sneakers last forever, meaning years, and I expect these to be no exception - but this could also be because I am not a skater. This shoe is less bulky and more streamlined/ninja style than their skate shoes overall. I have always needed to purchase Globe sneakers one full size larger than my normal shoe size - but then the fit is perfect. Warning, the stripes on the side are made of a shiny-ish almost holographic weave type of material that is not apparent from the photos, but is not super noticeable when worn.

I am not exactly pushing the structural integrity of the shoe using it like I am. With that being said the shoe feels great, fits fine, looks good, and has held up well during day to day use.

Extremely disappointed with the build on this pair of Globes. The past 3 pairs of shoes I have owned have been Globe. I've been insanely happy with everything about them. They fit right, they looked right, and they lasted. I've recommended them to anyone that asked about them. I'm not sure what the deal with this pair is, but they've fallen apart in a matter of months. I wear them daily as I have with the previous pairs I've owned (Globe Pulse Lite SKU: #7613185 / Globe The Goods SKU: #7216642) The red section, where you put your foot into the shoe looks as if a dog has chewed on it (wear / I don't have a dog), the heel is worn almost flat in spots and starting to separate from the sole. The white section on the bottom holds stains like crazy, oddly it's always been a concern with white lower sections on shoes and I've never had a problem with this on the other Globes I've owned. Zappos service is as always 5 stars.
