Rugged, fully padded cupsole style with step in sock/tongue. At Globe they have a healthy disrespect for the established way of doing things, and they embrace new ways of looking at the world. For them, it's always a time for change. In this day and age they've adopted a KNOW HOPE philosophy, whereby they are looking at the future with wide eyes and taking every opportunity to be creative. Globe team riders, who happen to be some of the best in the world, are a party to the products, but Globe also listens to their customers, constantly evolving with them, so they don't lose their edge. It's what keeps them inspired, progressive and able to stay fresh when so many others are pushing the same-old sameness.
