Wasted Talent | Globe - The Dover II
A subtle lesson in understatement
Over a few evening drinks with our friends at Globe in London or Paris, but it could have been Barcelona. We discussed how we yearned for a shoe that could be worn effortlessly from the early morning surf checks all the way through to when the sun dips and the evening lights begin to twinkle as we dance to the beat of the metropolitan drum. Enter the conception of a colab - a marriage led by minimalism. And were we overwhelmed by your support. So we put some heads together, achieved perfect corporate synergy and decided to go back in with the smallest of changes.
As the old adage goes – if it ain’t broke, why fix it?
So featuring a re-tweak of our favourite Globe Shoe, the Dover – we took it from last year’s low slung style, and added an inch to make a delightful mid slung boot constructed in horse-bit leather for durability and looking oh so much better when worn in. A modern take on an old Classic. And we’re away - taking you beachside in Portugal to the pavements of London with unparalleled steeze.
The Wasted Talent | Globe Dover is a low slung chelsea boot mid-cut slip-on made of full grain leather.
It features a Shockbed insole with Globe's Super V outsole. It has a stretch elastic gore.
Inspired by the classic Aussie Chelsea Boot, the Dover II is a subtle lesson in understatement.
Inspired by the classic Aussie Chelsea Boot, the full grain leather upper features stretch elastic gore for easy slip-on entry. "Taking you from the beachside in Portugal to the pavements of London with unparalled steeze".
Globe's polyurethane Shockbed™ insole footbed provides superior rebound protection and impact control for the life of the shoe.
The Super V vulcanized sole pattern has been designed with grip, smooth flex, and long wearing durability in mind. Globe's S-Trac lug pattern and additional material thickness in the toe and heel ensure long wear and excellent grip.
Wasted Talent was born on a late summer’s evening in the South West of France. A conversation after the flowing of the vinos that habitually doth flow in this part of the world. A conversation born out of frustration of the lack of innovation in the surf and skate scenes across Europe. The need for a common space for brands and products that we believed in. Put simply, you need clothes and accessories you can wear from the beach to the bar and beyond and not look like a total kook in the process. Quite the opposite in fact. We made a magazine and a store and we hope you like it. Click for more Wasted Talent
