Paying homage to the yesteryears of rollerskating, Impala Rollerskates offers up a range of up-to-the minute color and style trends, so you can feel good skating the streets or rink with your girl gang. 

Featuring a PVC upper, heels and sole, metal speed lace eyelets, aluminum alloy trucks and baseplate, 58mm 82A durometer nylon core urethane wheels and ABEC 7 bearings, this skate is constructed of high quality components at an entry level price of $139

The Summer 2018 range will be available from September and includes three new rollerskate colorways, hardware and women’s specific protective gear.

 

Globe decided to launch the brand after CEO Matt Hill and his brother Steve Hill, Globe’s Co-Founder and Executive Director, noticed that women in their late teens and early 20s were increasingly roller-skating by the beach in both the U.S. and Australia.

Since launching in Australia and USA in December 2017, Impala has become so coveted that every shipment to date has sold out.

 

 

Talking to US website Shop Eat Surf Globe CEO Matt Hill said Globe did not hire new people to manage the brand and the strategy, but rather tapped internal employees, which has worked out well.

 

 

“We really like to promote from within and give people opportunities, sometimes even throw them in the deep end a bit,” he said. “We have found over the years that that has led to some of our most successful long term employees.”
