Globe Skateboard Shoes & Sneakers Features

Globe Footwear is way ahead of the game when it comes to skate shoe technology. This is probably their best attribute, and their sneakers are world-reknown for their amazing features; not for style so much, but for ways to help you be a better skateboarder. They have some of the most unique and advanced skate shoe technology, here's just a taste of their best features...

Globe has a patented stitching design called Ballistic Grade Thread (BGT)TM which is currently the best abrasion resistant stitching available in any skateboarding sneakers. Some of Globe's sneakers even feature their patented HexTracTM and HerringBoneTM tread patterns that are put in certain areas of the sole to maximize grip and flexibility. Another part of their patented Form FitTM construction is their patented Air-Flow FoamTM insoles which provide maximum comfort and shock dispersion. This brand clearly has some of the most advanced skateboard shoes on the market.

The prices on their youth shoes are very reasonable and affordable on most budgets. Kids Globe shoes come in all sizes and are basically just miniature versions of the adult sized shoes. Currently, this is the list of kids Globe shoes on sale:

Cheap Globe Shoes

As a world leader in skateboard shoes and sneakers, this company is able to provide consumers with several cheap Globe shoes to choose from. It's not hard to find cheap Globe shoes when they make so many that their older models start to become cheaper. You can find cheap Globe shoes on several websites and also at your local skate shop on the clearance rack. When the newer Globe sneakers come out, the older ones get cheap. This is your chance to snag a deal on a pair of quality, cheap Globe sneakers.

As I mentioned before, Globe Footwear can afford to make relatively cheap shoes. Many Globe shoes are priced at $80 or more. So the question is, what do you consider a cheap Globe shoe? To me, anything under $60 should qualify as a relatively cheap Globe shoe, so I will provide you with a list of cheap Globes shoes on sale currently priced at $60 or less*:

  • The Goods ($60)
  • Rage ($60)
  • Motley ($40)
  • Prelude ($60)
  • Tilt ($55)

Globe Footwear's Sponsored Skateboarders




Globe Footwear's success is largely attributed to the pro skateboarders that endorse and design Globe's sneakers. These skateboarders not only help design Globe skateboard shoes, they also rely on these skateboard shoes to perform their tasks out on the concrete where it really matters. This brand sponsors some of the best skateboarders in the world. In fact, one rider named Rodney Mullen just happens to arguably be the best skateboarder of all time. Without their willingness to listen and incorporate ideas by their sponsored riders, Globe sneakers would likely have not seen the amount of success that they have. Here are the pro skateboarders who depend on Globe sneakers every time they step on a skateboard.

  • Mark Appleyard
  • Chris Haslam
  • Jake Duncombe
  • David Gonzalez
  • Rodney Mullen
  • Ryan Decenzo
  • Luan Oliveira
  • Louie Lopez

History of Globe Footwear



Globe Footwear was established in 1994 in Melbourne, Australia and has been a leader in the skateboard shoe and sneaker industry ever since. Globe Footwear has consistently kept up with the current skateboard shoe trends and has set the bar for professional skateboarder designed sneakers numerous times and continues to push forward. Globe skateboard shoes have always been popular whether it was for their style, their comfort, their durability, or their special features, and Globe Footwear is one of the few skate shoe companies that can manage to excel in all four of those aspects. Chet Thomas, the professional skateboard and owner of Darkstar Skateboards, is now the Globe Footwear manager after retiring his pro model shoe with Globe. The future of Globe Footwear looks brighter than ever, and there's no telling how far they will go.
