a loafer is pretty much just a slip-on janoski.  I have no problem with them.

Why the loafers all the time?
Apparently loafers are what skateboarders imagine rich people wear all day/every day.
Think of it as an aspirational design.

In this case I think it's Dylan's influence still five years on. Also I'm sure Herman is still at least invested in HRS and this seems to be a more affordable, skate oriented sister company (hence the name similarly and fact this loafer looks like a more skate friendly version of HRS Del Rey)

Yea I really wanted the mule version of the del ray that Ellingtonís company made, but 395 for that hoe, I know itís handmade in Italy or whatever the fuck, but I canít afford to spend a quarter months rent on literally half a shoe cause I thought they were cool, but who knows maybe Iíll win the lottery one day I can get some to fulfill my ďthe LebowskiĒ fit.

So, Ellington and Herman wanted to start a shoe company that makes loafers called Hours, but E wanted them to be $400 and H wanted them to be $60 so they had to start two completely separate companies? And E has a pro shoe with Li Ning at the same time, which is pretty much half way in between those price points. He should have just had Li Ning make a loafer too, and called the "ours" to really make it all as confusing as possible.

I think it was the other way around, I'm pretty sure it started with HRS and then Herman left and did Hours

'And E has a pro shoe with Li Ning at the same time, which is pretty much half way in between those price points. He should have just had Li Ning make a loafer too

Regardless of price, the Li Ning shoes are skate shoes and the HRS are not, they're lifestyle shoes and boots. Also, I'm sure Ellington would rather own his own company rather and be sponsored by another rather than just be sponsored by one company. Li-Ning does sportswear shit, I don't see them giving him a boutique shoe line.

I think people are just trying to say they ripped the design. You know globes very original design of the penny loafer.

Penny loafers are for rooks & plebes; you wanna get with the hustle, stuff your loafers with 1 oz gold Krugerrand.

Actually pretty genuinely interested in this company, herm is sick and the shoes look like they would skate pretty good, the loafer model I keep seeing looks good, and there is a court inspired silhouette with a dipped toe (Ellington vibes) that looks like it would skate alright, couple other slip on models that looks similar to the Supra Cuban which I thought was Supraís best shoe personally

I think their dope and stoked to check them out in person.

The Cuba was one of Supraís first shoes and they made that shoe until they folded. Itís seemed to have proven to be a well received shoe. Surprised no one else has made a silhouette like it. Especially Vans.

HUF had one like it when they first started doing shoes, but I donít think it was around long

I feel like this is a lot of skate fashion right now. The look I'm thinking is "you think that guy owns a boat?"

Idk if Globe is in shops but I know they have offices in El Segundo because I tried to get a job there. So, they're real.

Surely these shoes won't last a bit, they look so thin. Either way they're probably gonna sell enough because they're not hideous and it's Bryan Herman selling them.
