Press Release: The first new Rodney Mullen skate shoe in a decade now available
Introducing Rodney Mullen’s new mid-top cupsole skate shoe designed and developed with features to support those who skate every day.
With the last Rodney Mullen Pro shoe released in 2009, for over a two year period, Rodney has been working with Globe footwear designers on his new shoe’s conceptualization and design, painstakingly testing multiple samples and tweaking technical specifications over exhausting skate sessions.
The resulting Octave Mid RM Black/Gum features internal stretch mesh sock construction for a custom fit, asymmetric mid-cut height for additional ankle support and protection, PU Drop in Shockbed™ insole and a Pro Am rubber cupsole, along with a shaved suede/mesh upper.
Rodney recently reflected; “Over 30+ years, my affiliations with companies—even my own—have changed many times; my loyalty is to skateboarding and the friendships forged through our mutual striving—not businesses. Friends are friends, regardless of who they skate for. Today, I’ve been with Globe longer than any other company for many reasons, primarily because of who they are as people combined with their dedication to skateboarding and those of us who’ve lived-it for most of our lives. They have, too. I’m grateful for their help in building this new shoe; it’s the one that works best for what I do.”
