The Globe Gillette: ideas from over 20 years of skateboarding in one shoe
Austyn Gillette is a figurehead when it comes to style on the skateboard. Since joining Globe, he has given the brand a new face in skateboarding. His first Globe pro skate shoe also sets new accents: the Globe Gillette - a real eye-catcher, just like Austyn's skating.
Everything Austyn wanted in his shoe: the features of the Globe Gillette
Austyn has collected many ideas for skate shoes in his more than 20 years of experience in skateboarding. The Globe Gillette, which you can easily buy online at skatedeluxe, bundles all that input into one shoe.
The most striking thing about Austyn's Globe pro shoe is the Flex-Resin Formula rubber toe cap that runs around the shoe. The material provides durability and flexibility at the same time.
In addition, the Globe Gillette has the proven Super-V™ outsole with a special foxing tape made of Bloom™ Trek Rubber. The latter is a rubber that is proportionally made of algae. The algae are removed from watercourses by the Bloom™ process.
The water is thus purified and the Bloom™ Trek Rubber is thus somewhat more sustainable than comparable materials. Grip, durability, and board feel are of course guaranteed.
The Lux Shockbed™ sockliner in the Globe Gillette provides ample cushioning and an integrated sockliner provides comfort. These and other niceties make the Globe Gillette a very functional skate shoe that still looks sleek.
