Globe shoes, NZ
The Globe brand began in Australia, making shoes for riders of concrete in the mid 90’s, before expanding their range and their reach around the globe. They’ve grown to become iconic in the field of boardsports and street culture, with Globe shoes advocated by skateboarding legends such as Rodney Mullen, Chris Halsam and Mark Appleyard.
