A collaboration for the ages, the Spitfire x Deathwish collection is ready to burn it down and take no prisoners. From two brands synonymous with skateboarding,…
With the release of a few new models including the Mahalo Mid, the Cardinal and the brand new Taurus from Louie Barletta, Globe shoes is starting too look like a top contender in the fight to be a leading shoe brand. If you had any questionable thoughts about Globe, all these models will be sure to put you in your place. So please take a seat as I take you to class on why you all will be purchasing these shoes.
We’ll start with the Mahalo Mid, Mark Appleyard’s signature shoe. A mid top shoe with a slimmer toe area. By providing more ankle support you won’t loose any of your board feel. Now, the Mahalo Mid’s aren’t exactly a new model but they’ve definitely taken their first step towards being a part of this powerhouse lineup before you.
Features: Super clean vulcanized low cut. Classical casual styling. Functional skate performance. Contrast woven rope lace. PU footbed for enhanced impact control. Globe’s S-Trac for ultimate grip and flex. Leather upper. Vulcanized outsole. Designed by Mark Appleyard.
The Globe Cardinal is another mid top with a slim, simple and essential design, giving you everything you need technology-wise without adding any bulk or unneeded attributes to slow you down. I’ve mentioned in other blog posts about how I’m a big fan of stripped down, no bullshit skate shoes and these are definitely in that class. The Globe Cardinal is a great part of Globe’s new appeal.
Features: Tapered low chukka style. Canvas upper with suede trims. Vulcanized calendar style upper. Thin tongue and collar. Mid top design.
They say to save the best for last and this statement has never been truer then it is now. Louie Barletta’s The Taurus, available in both Toffee and Black, rules supreme over any other competitor. If Rocky Balboa were a shoe, he’d be The Taurus. I cannot stress enough how great these shoes are. The design is simple yet beautiful. Whoever said “less is more” had a great impact on this shoe. Rumor has it that Leonardo Da Vinci wore these shoes while he painted the Mona Lisa, that’s how spot on these shoes are. Plus the toffee colorway will be sure to make your mouth water. Grab this shoe while you can.
Features: Wingtip styling. Leather upper. Vulcanized construction. PU footbed for enhanced impact control. Globe’s S-Trac for ultimate grip and flex. Unique lycra forefoot sock construction. Overlay tongue with gimped edge. Designed and tested by Louie Barletta.
All in all Globe has released some pretty spectacular shoes recently. I hope all of you take notice and support their accomplishments in their shoe endeavors toward greatness. All of these are on our site ready to be purchased so be sure to pick yours up today or check out the entire Globe collection.
