GLOBE’S story started in 1994 when skating enthusiasts and brothers – Peter, Matt and Stephen – joined forces to solve a situation that was grinding on them somewhat. The Aussie trio was miffed with the state of skatewear in Australia and thankfully, decided to take action. 25 years down the line, GLOBE continues to sell quality skate shoes and streetwear, and their team now boasts the likes of Mark Appleyard, Chris Haslam and Rodney Mullen.
Welcoming GLOBE into the size? roster this season, we’re stocking a selection of footwear from the brand’s Fall ’19 Collection. First on the line-up is the heritage-inspired Option Evo, so let’s have a look, shall we…
The next evolutionary step of the ’98 Option, the Evo reinterprets the OG silhouette’s DNA and injects it with the latest technologies to create a modernised skate shoe for today.
Sleek and streamlined, the model features fully synthetic uppers with a breathable mesh base to keep your feet feeling fresh when on the move and synthetic suede overlays for heightened durability. Its semi-sock tongue design – plus the pull loops at the tongue and heel – make taking the pair on and off a breeze.
The design features don’t stop there. Underfoot, the brand’s Nitrolite EVA midsole provides you with lightweight cushioning when on the board, plus there’s a solid TPU shank in the footbed that helps keep you stable and supported. Its grippy rubber outsole rises onto the toe-cap and flares up at the sides bolster’s the shoe durability, and help minimise wear and tear when out on the ‘board.
