Globe was born out of necessity when a need arose for Peter and Stephen Hill to find quality skate and snow products in Australia. Beginning in the mid-80s the brothers founded Hardcore enterprises as a sound board for the skate sports and street culture they had embraced. Hardcore rapidly expanded to become one of the world’s largest skateboarding Distribution Company.
In 1994 the Hill brothers created the Globe brand with current CEO Matt Hill fueled from the skateboarding explosion they had supported. Globe started with signature skate shoes and began adding apparel until eventually they rolled out hardwoods for the broader board market.
Currently, Globe boasts an impressive crew of athletes, boarders, surfers, and designers united by media, design, and film. The brand cultivates a sophisticated style with subtle island roots raised on board sports and street fashion.
