Following up on their efforts of early last year, G-Shock and skate brand Globe reconvene on a new capsule of products. Encompassing the strengths of both respective brands, this takes shape with the unveiling of the GRX5600GE-1 watch ($140 USD), the Cruiserboard ($180 USD) and the all-new Comanche Boot ($90 USD). The overall design inspirations are taken from military night operatives, hence the mostly blacked-out look contrasted by red detailing. A release is set for November through select retailers.
