Austyn Gillette | The Dover
When Austyn joined the team, we immediately started working on a colorway for him to skate in. Austyn was drawn to the Dover because of its simplicity, durability and overall comfort. After adjusting the shoe to have a lower profile, internal padding for protection and additional holes for breathability, we can proudly say we have rebuilt a classic silhouette to be a highly functional skate shoe.
Undyed Leather + Bloom™ Rubber
This season we’re excited to present our latest step forward in our ongoing pursuit to improve our sustainability. The Collection features Wolverine Leathers™ undyed eco-nubuck and Bloom™ rubber. These materials have been thoroughly tested and proven to be eco-friendlier, more durable and fit to perform. Better for skateboarding. Better for the planet.
Bloom™ Trek Rubber
Globe is the first skateboard shoe company to use Bloom™ new Trek Rubber. Bloom™ cleans up algae from waterways, and converts it into a material that can be added to the rubber in our outsoles. It’s rubber made with algae – and has been tested by our skaters for durability.
We continue our relationship with Wolverine leathers, using their most durable pig nubuck. Pigs are much more environmentally friendly than cows, using less natural resources to raise, and producing less methane gas.
