Globe Logo
GLOBE was established in the 1980’s, born out of Hardcore Enterprises, an Australian-based company specializing in skateboards and street culture.

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 skate shoes and shoes for surfers, and then with apparel and hard goods 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.

Very comfortable, great quality that you would expect from Globe. Definitely one of my favorite pairs of shoes.

The shoe is so shallow my heel wasn't even halfway into the shoe and everytime I took a step would completely slip out. Never had an issue like this before, but I guess i could have unusually high arches or something that had my heel set extra high??

Don't be fooled by the "Canvas upper" description. The tongue clearly says "leather upper". Those wishing to avoid animal parts in their clothes, steer clear of this item!

A little narrower than expected when they arrived. Wore them for a week to break them in and now they feel great.

I decided to try these shoes out due to the style and overall look . Hoping they’d come with cushion but unfortunately no cushion on the bottom feels like you’re walking bare footed , extremely stiff and hard . I’m extremely unhappy with the shoes , going to return them and just get some adidas for the comfort and style

Let me say my first "love" for Globe shoes brand was because of this shoe. It was my favorite shoe of all time. Why do you ask when i say it was my favorite shoe? They stopped producing this shoe around 2010 I believe. I have bought two pairs back then and still wear them both a few times a week. I am beyond happy they bought the shoe back. I brought one pair so far. I hope to buy at least 2 more before they are gone! The shoe just has so much cushion. Its a "fat" shoe. Meaning it is large on the outside. Sometimes it's just nice to feel so much support.

My second pair; I normally wear a 10, went 10.5 on these, width was good. I tend to not notice arch support unless its really bad, so as far as I know it's moderate. The shoe was a little tight (even with a half size larger than normal) until they were broke in, the padding will give a little and loosen up. Its worth noting the tongue is integrate into the side of the shoe and is padded so they laces are really not doing much other than holding the outer layer tight against the top of the shoe. So they are meant to be a slip on and fairly tight when new. Everything was good up until the air pocket cracked open after 4 months of fairly light use. The air cell seems only an aesthetic feature, as the broken shoe feels the same as the good one; so I have continued to wear them. Only issue with them now is that one shoe makes a different sound when walking.

I bought these for my 10 year old son. The style is great! He felt they were too tight in the toes, but they were also slipping at heel because the extra padding in the tongue makes it hard for him to tie them tightly enough. I was able to get them tight enough, but I don't have the time to do that every time he wears them (and what 10 year old boy wants his mom helping him tie his shoes?).

Quality and style. I have bought a few pairs of Globe brand shoes and feel this sums them up well. I’m over 40 years old but don’t feel I’m wearing something too overdone. I like the understated style.

You want a beefy skate shoe you got it right here. pretty hefty in weight but can handle all kinds of abuse. recommended if you are going to be putting some work into your shoes.

I have been a loyal customer of these shoes for years. They changed the padding in the heel and they slip like crazy now. I would gladly pay more for the same shoe without the cheap changes. I have bought several different pairs hoping this would change (no luck). I measured an old pair at the thickest point on the heel and the same spot on a new pair, they were a 1/4" smaller than the old pair... Let me know when you upgrade this show to the "old standard" I will gladly pay more!

These are by far my husband's favorite pair of shoes now! He loves everything about them! He says there very comfortable and highly recommends! He's a pretty big guy, 6'4", 290lbs so he needs good support and these are definitely doing the trick!

Great slip on casual shoes. Has a nice rubbery massaging inserts. I wear these most of the time and it goes well with jeans or shorts.

Fit and cushion seem good, color is nice, but they are NOT AS PICTURED. The pictures show TPR (rubberized plastic) over the bottom 2 eyelets on both inside and outside of upper. The advantage is you lace the laces under that TPR and the 'flap' of TPR would cover the laces on the side to protect from ollie damage. They do have this on the top 2 eyelets, but for some reason did away with it on the bottom 2. Consequently your laces will get shredded from skating. Super bummed cause I love the overall style and look.

I really like these shoes. Actually ended up buying two pairs just in case I mess one pair up. The black and gum looks nice and can probably be used for a number of occasions. I'm not a huge Globe fan but I definitely enjoy these shoes.
