Austyn to be on Globe?
« on: April 01, 2021, 03:18:17 PM »
I remembered someone saying austyn is getting on globe and they have a revamp planned. Randomly checked their ig and they do follow him. Looks like they don't follow any other skaters that aren't on the team...

I think its the epoke/former connection. Austyn is friends with dion agius and some other riders on former ride for globe. Globe is propably the distribution of all that stuff. They follow wasted talent aswell and as far as i know its the only european shop/site to buy former.

Interesting. I hope you are right as I'm a fan of Austyn and not so much globe. The only way I see him going for it is the fact that he skates with Sammy Montano alot. I could also see him liking the challenge of taking a brand like globe and making it cool in his eyes.

That said it would make sense for globe to give austyn the opportunity to design his own shoestuff. And because he is in that cosmos already, they would all profit. So why not.

He surfs and as previously mentioned has connects there, so it all kind of fits. My feet can't do Globes the last time I tried but I guess this is cool.

Anyone ever buy Former clothes? I wanna buy, but I'm too much of a bargain hunter

Globes current crew isnít that bad, but they could definitely use new energy. I hope this works out for both globe and austyn

I refuse to believe someone as fashion forward as Austyn would ever skate for globe . Do they even sell shoes in America anymore? I havenít seen a globe shoe since 8th grade . And that was 15 years ago.

Pretty sure heís recently mentioned being content with his vans situation of free shoes and travel budget?

Austyn on Globe is a funny one; itís both really weird yet also makes sense at the exact same time? :o

I'm the same way, I usually don't buy full priced skate brand stuff unless it's something I'm really stoked on. I have one Former sweatshirt that I got for doing their $25 raffle for a pair of their Vans collab shoes. The deal was that $25 got you a raffle ticket and a "free" t-shirt. They sent me a sweatshirt instead, and while it's something I would never buy full price, I'm super stoked on it. It's a nice mid-weight sweatshirt with a tasteful design, nothing too crazy or out there.

Itís not that foreign of a concept considering Dylan gave gravis a huge facelift.

Globe tried to get him around the time Sammy Montano joined. Didn't work out at the time.

Globe still has a huge budget and Austyn isn't making much from skateboarding. I think this would make more sense than it seems at first.

I could kinda see it. As weird as globe has been for awhile, Iíve still always found it better image wise than other lesser shoe brands.

If they let him design a shoe itíll probably look good.

Globe trying to rebrand into the new Gravis or something could be interesting. I actually like a few of their current models. The sammy montano high tops they put out looked pretty good.

Austyn is one of my favorite skaters and I hope he'll put out another part. Hopefully one without Strobeck style zoomy zooms.

To echo others above, I could definitely see it. Austynís Huf shoe sold out pretty nicely from what I remember, and if Globe has the money for the revamp, he would fit the mold more than a big contest skater imo.

I really hope Daveed, Ryan Decenzo, and Austyn room together on trips if this is true.

Fwiw, I skated Haslam's Globe shoe and it was pretty comfortable.  I'd try a decent looking Austyn Globe shoe one time

Would be a good fit imo. Some of globe's designs are really nice - a mix of habitat and gravis.

I've been eyeing this chukka for a while but can never find them for a decent price
