I absolutley love these shoes! I got them from a local skate shop and love the mid top look. They are true to size and fit perfectly. I love the seamless shell toe design which is great for the skater without enough money to buy shoes a lot. I already have done 1,000 tricks and the shoe still looks new. I used to ride the fusions and sabres and honestly was impressed with these. Anybody who wants a sick looking shoe with durability and performance with a modern look, these shoes are the choice. Also for wide footed skaters globes hooked us up with a wider base vulc.

Good design, good feel, terrible shoe. Within a month and a half, the front of the shoe had been torn open, and wrinkled, and the shoes ultimately destroyed. The glue that held the shoe together had failed, and the stitching that attached the whole shoe together had fallen apart. These were the worst pair of shoes I have ever owned. At first they were great, but in a month or so, they were destroyed. I only used these as walking shoes, and no rigorous activity or sports were played with these shoes. These are the definition of bad manufacturing. Sorry Globe, but never buying again.

These are some great shoes. They're nicely constructed and felt solid. Sadly, they run what felt like a full size too small. So I sent them back, but I am ordering a new pair a size larger! You should get a pair!

Super solid construction and really cool. The textured gum gives great grip on flip tricks, really sturdy, been skating them for 2 weeks and barely any change. True to size.

I bought this shoe for my 11 year old son. He has had it for about two months now and it has held up well. The fit was great. The best thing about Zappos is, if the shoe is not what you expect, you can send it back with free shipping, no questions asked. So what do you have to lose?

Very comfortable shoe. Stylish, great for chillaxing in as well as skating. The only was that the front looks a bit small and be sure to order them a half size bigger then your normal size.

The shoes were great, but after one month of wear the outer sole began to detach from the shoe. After two months the stitching was coming undone by the laces. I do not know if I got a lemon pair, but I have never had a pair of shoes fall apart so quickly. The pair I had been wearing before this were some Lakai Selects and even after four years of everyday wear they never reached this level of destruction. I will not ever be buying a pair of Globe shoes again

Do not buy these shoes. By far, the lowest quality shoes I have ever owned. By the second day they began to unglue. I've now worn them for two weeks and the soles are almost completely detached from the rest of the shoe. Note: I have not been skating in these shoes. I've only walked in them. Total junk!

I absolutely love these shoes. They have held up for over three years of every day wear, with occasional skating thrown in the mix. I will definitely buy again.

Having big feet sucks, and I'm a little wide...when I first put my foot inside I had to clip my toe nails for a more comfortable feel then after some time it must have worked in a little or I got used to it.

These have been great! I ordered a pair just about 2 years ago. After that pair wore out (took a whole year of grinding around on the ground) I went back and bought another pair. The second pair is now nearing the end and I'm thinking of going back for a third. They've always been comfortable, look great, are easy to slip on, and best of all they last forever.

These are great looking shoes, sort of a throwback/alternative to the Chucka boots. They provide zero sole support - I installed arch supports. They seem like they hold up okay but I have not been that rough on them yet.

Very comfortable shoes. They also look great. Manufacturing quality is a bit of a question at this point as the black rubber square on the heel fell off within the first week. But that doesn't really bother me as far as how they look without it. Overall I am happy with this purchase they are very comfy and look cool, guess I'll see how the durability is.

Great shoe - looks great and feels great, but the Motley Mid has AWFUL ventilation. My feet do not sweat much in general, but these shoes make your feet extremely hot. That's the only downside so far.

These shoes are SO narrow, which was surprising. My brother has had several pairs of Globes that were nice and wide, but these particular shoes are incredibly slender. The materials felt flimsy, but the shoes look great. The size was fine, so exchanging them for a larger fit to counter the width issue wouldn't have helped. A pity.

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.

The only thing great about these were the color and style. The front scraped against the top of my middle toes and the middle of the inside sole had a bump which I'm guessing was "arch support."
