Quality. Durability. Comfort.
Since our inception in the early 90's, Globe has always been at the forefront of technical advances in skate shoe research and development. We strive to use the most durable and sustainable materials, so your shoes last longer, and have less impact on the environment. Developed and tested by our riders.
This season we introduce the Surplus, a utilitarian vulcanized skate shoe featuring Globe’s Shockbed™ insole for impact control, and Super-V™ outsole for enhanced grip and board feel. Tested and developed for skateboarding by our team, this evergreen staple is essential for any shop wall.
Mark Appleyard’s classic vulcanized skate silhouette with added rubber ollie patch for durability. Just like the original Mahalo, the Mahalo Plus in Black Wrap also features Globe’s Shockbed™ insole for impact control specifically formulated for Mark and Super-V™ outsole for enhanced grip and board feel.
Featuring sustainable cotton stitching and water based glues, the Low Tide is designed with sustainability in mind. Also featuring Shockbed™ insole for all-day comfort, cork veneer lining and Globe's Super-V™ outsole containing 5% recycled rubber. As an extension to our skateboard 'Regrowth' partnership with the National Forest Foundation, we will plant one tree for every pair of these sold
Our revamped sustainable Low Velocity clothing program has inspired us to continue to bring more sustainably sourced materials to our footwear line, while still ensuring that durability and skate function are driving our design process. Some of the sustainable materials include:
Cotton grown with organic agricultural methods uses fewer pesticides than conventional cotton and therefore reduces exposure to toxic chemicals that can end up in the ground, air, water and our food chain. We continue to use organic cotton throughout the range. Shop our Organic Cotton Collection here.

Super V Vulcanized Sole
The Super V™ vulcanized sole pattern has been designed with grip, smooth flex, and long wearing durability in mind. Globe's S-Trac lug pattern and additional material thickness in the toe and heel ensure long wear and excellent grip.
Many of our styles feature ollie protection. Rubber ollie insert patches or reinforced rubber toe caps to enhance robustness of the foxing tape, and provide more protection against the griptape of the deck.
Globe's polyurethane footbed provides superior rebound protection for the life of the shoe.
