Size and fit

The mid-top Globe Motley Mid is offered in US men’s sizes, from 7 to 14. Some recommend ordering at least a half size from the wearer’s regular measurements as it runs small. Being familiar with the online store or retailer’s return procedure is advantageous in the event that the fit is not accurate.

It has light padding on the collar and tongue that gives a seamless foot entry and adequate comfort. An optimal underfoot feel and impact control is offered by the Shockbed insole.

Globe Motley Mid Style

The Globe Motley Mid showcases a slim, low-profile upper construction in a clean suede or canvas upper, depending on the colorway. It has piping accents across the side panels until the heel area while perf detailing are situated on the lower lateral sides. Wearers love its modest design and colorways because these qualities make it easier to incorporate this skate shoe into their fashion ensemble. To show the appealing silhouette of the Motley Mid, pair it with shorts, baggy pants, and denim jeans.
