+ FUNCTION & PERFORMANCE
Globe hand picks every component ensuring quality and durability. From foams to reinforcements, eyelets to laces, every detail is meticulously considered down to the very last stitch.
NITROLITE™ DROP IN SHOCKBED:
+ LIGHT, HIGH PERFORMANCE
A super light version of the deeper ’full volume’ Shockbed, this high performance footbed is also made of lighter material.
PRO AM CUPSOLE:
+ IMPACT CONTROL, DURABILITY
The Pro Am cupsole is a classically styled outsole with external stitching around the toe and heel for durability. It also features direct cushioning by accommodating a deep Drop in Shockbed, directly beneath the foot, and provides plenty of grip with a combination of Globe's S-Trac and ’broken herringbone’ patterns on the bottom.
