Globe’s business concepts originated in the early ’90s from the desire to develop an authentic skateboard and surf footwear alternative for the action sports market. In 1995, Globe’s rapid expansion prompted the opening of its Globe International headquarters in Southern California to serve the booming U.S. market and the launching of line extensions and additional brands, including: 1) Globe clothing and accessories, 2) Globe Trans Element, a casual footwear line, 3) Gallaz, the first action sports footwear brand specifically for females and 4) Gallaz clothing and accessories. Supported by a global team of world-class surfers and skateboarders, Globe and Gallaz offer quality products that integrate style, performance, durability and comfort. Globe, Gallaz and Globe Trans Element are distributed throughout the world. Additional information can be found at and
