Designed by skate legend Chet Thomas, Globe’s CT-IV skate shoes have undergone something of a renaissance over the past 12 months. Proving the old saying that “form is temporary, and class is permanent”, the sneaker has been reborn as must-have streetwear item of the year, and even featured on the runway at Double Rainbouu’s Australian Fashion Week show.
So naturally we were stoked when Globe gave us a bunch of pairs to give out to some of our closest mates, and it’s fair to say they went faster than rubbery, shoe-shaped hotcakes. Models Caspar Thomas and Aleyna Fitzgerald, ‘Dear Friend’ owner/designer Jono Friend, Lovegang Co-founder Indy Clinton, and Culture Machine head honcho Yasmin Suteja were amongst those who couldn’t get enough of the CT-IVs.
