” Life’s a Bender and so is my shoe”

The Bender, Jake Duncombe’s first pro model shoe, was inspired by Jake’s nautical flare. He and the Globe design team set out to create a skateable boat shoe that was lightweight, and had mad grip, with a lightly padded tongue and ankle collar.

The Bender is a vulcanized, mid-top deck shoe equally at home on a board, in the bar, or manning the helm. It has distressed details, and a mix of canvas, suede and leather with a hand-stitched moccasin toe and is held together with Ballistic Grade Thread. Keeping with the boat vibe, there are leather laces and the lace through the heel to finish it off.

The footbed art consists of a nautical “ Terra Australis” map for extra flare points.

Get your Bender on!
