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.

I have been skating for decades now, & I've had about 5-6 pairs of Sabres over the years (mostly through zappos lol) that is how much I love Globes high end skate shoes. These fit/feel almost exactly the same as the Sabres only tankier & I love the color schemes/options, quite satisfied with my purchase as usual.

Fits true to size and comfortable like all Globe shoes are. The laces were the perfect length. I ordered them at 5pm and received them by 2pm the next day. Fastest delivery! Couldn’t be happier with my purchase

They begged me to write a review for these. I guess 513 wasn’t enuff to get it figured out. Their sweet mocs. Comfy, stylee, and not too expensive. They do seem to be catching an odor kinda quickly. My feet don’t stink so I’m not sure whats going on there? I think the mocs leather or suede can get funky easily? Their soo comffortable, I went shopping and forgot I had them on. The soles make them feel like real shoes. Just warmer and fuzzier. Get a pair. If you dont like them, return em. God bless America!!

The shoes fit good and are comfortable. I purchased the brown pair and the color of the leather was different on each shoe. I returned for another pair and had the same issue with the new pair received but it wasn't as noticable so I just kept them.

Was trying to find the Vans 106 vulcanized core classics (Black/Black) and they were either discontinued or out of stock. The Globe Winslow (SKU: 8725893 - Black/Black Canvas) version fit the bill as an alternative. Very comfortable and stylish. Perhaps even a step above the Vans I've been wearing for years. I would recommend these to others who like Vans. Time will tell how they hold up comparatively.

I wear a 9.5 in globes normal skate shoes. I ordered a 10 for the Castro and at first I felt the were a bit small. They do fit but just barely. After about week of breaking them in the fit better and are a lot more comfortable. I held them sole to sole with the Globe agent 9.5 I purchased at the same time and the Castro are a tiny bit smaller. If you wear a half size definitely round up to the next size because Castro is not offered in half sizes. Overall good slippers suitable for outside the house as well as inside.

Had a pair of $100 Patagonia slippers for 8 years that were great but got pretty stinky so was time to replace. These were much cheaper, just as comfortable, and will probably last as long or longer since these have legit soles... These work great for house slippers but that you can wear outside or to the store if needed. They look cool too... I am very happy with these!! Just hope they last a few years at least?

I usually go for globe motleys or chuck taylor all stars, so this shoe is a little different for me. This shoe is not as spacious as the motley or CTAS, but it broke in nicely and is comfortable. In general Vans are way too tight for me, so I like shoes with a lot of space. I've skated in them 2 times, and I love the soles. The tread pattern if really good, I like how it feels on board. All that being said I would give the motely the edge in comfort and these the edge in looks.

I’m an old guy & Globes take great care of me. Just bought my tall/big footed son his first pair of good skate shoes. He told me “they are So Sick!” I’m glad to know that was a real positive response. I think we’re going to have a good time with Zappos and Globes! Peace, out.

Feels off in sizing overall for me. The 11 was too small in length when I normally wear an 11 in most brands of skateboarding shoes. The inner sock is nice but not easy to get as snug as I like which makes the 11.5 feel to big around the ankle/upper foot. The shoes are of nice quality. One of the insoles were folded under when I got them which seemed odd but so did the second pair I exchanged for. At least it was consistent. Nice padding, lightweight, leather looks kinda cheap in person - would have preferred typical suede here. Not the thinnest of soles so trickier to feel your skateboard edge over something like Vans, Adidas SB, or Nike SB. Still new shoes and I will update later if things go awry and need to add more relevant info. For now my feet are comfy. Happy trails.

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!

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.
