Skateboarding Product Reviews

Globe Winter Apparel

These days skate shoe companies have a full range of accessories and clothing available to accompany their footwear ranges and Globe‘s apparel presence over the last few years has crept up into the forefront to compete with the other elite brands out there. Here’s a selection of winter product from Globe that should keep you warm and feeling good at the same time.

‘Globe Wanna Be Anarchy’ Jacket

It’s winter and there’s nothing worse than skating home from a session freezing to death afterwards. This year Globe have brought you a solution, this camouflage cotton lined and shelled winter jacket is made to combat the cold but to also allow you to skate in comfort.

The polyester lining is slightly padded keeping your warmth in but also acts perfectly in a slam situation offering you protection if you fall due its thickness, but please note that this is no puffa jacket, but it has a good filling. Despite not having inside pockets that I’m personally accustomed to, this jacket does offer 4 buttoned pockets on the front with tailored sleeves and poppers if you want to tighten them up.

Overall this Globe camouflage number is a winter slayer and should get you through the worst of it.

Globe Scraper Crew Sweat

Hoodies take all the attention but the good old fashioned jumper has made a massive comeback in skating this year and stripes in particular have always proved popular. This charcoal scraper crew sweat has subtle thin blue stripes on the front, thicker stripes on the back and is thin enough to feel comfortable in if you are skating with a jacket on this winter. Made out of 70% acrylic and 30% wool, you know that this will be a tad styleier than the effort your Nan may try and knit you this season. Check the Globe website for other colours. You can’t go wrong with a jumper.

Globe Neo Beanie

This is the warmest acrylic beanie to bless my head all winter so far. When this reached HQ I was down with a stinker of a cold and still had to get through the week whilst the weather just got colder and colder. I must admit this thick tea cosy saved my arse as it provides some serious warmth and also comes with a neat peak that seems to be my preferred taste for winter headwear these days. These may well come in different colours but mine was labeled earthmarle which is a rustic brown, comfortable and should do the trick nicely.

Globe Fingerless Glove Mitts & Toasted Throaty

Other winter warmers from Globe include these fingerless gloves that also turn into mitts once you pull the mitts over the fingers. It’s a strange design I have not seen before but obviously works well if you want the best of both worlds. They are seriously warm but also are not too thick so that feel clumsy in them. Also, if you are sick of a trailing scarf and want a quick fix to stop the chill hitting your neck Globe have also released a toasted throaty this season for exactly that reason. The fabric is stupidly soft so if it’s freezing and the wind is up, pulling this across your face is going to be nothing but comfort – plus if you don’t fancy wearing it in black, the toasted throaty is reversible and grey on the opposite side, just switch it
