Makers of Melbourne

Welcome to Makers Of Melbourne – the ‘go to’ guide for our technically integrated age.

Makers Of Melbourne has been created to consume and assimilate Melbourne culture. We're male focussed, but not male specific, sorting through the dross to weed out the creative stars, standout events and stylish folk that make this city unique. 

MOM aims to embrace all facets of what makes this city a creative hub. Our aim is to inform without condescending – to keep you abreast of what’s going on without regurgitating Press Releases & to seek out this city’s sub cultures to give our readers the inside scoop on what’s REALLY happening with the people who make Melbourne Melbourne.

One of the oft forgotten facts of Melbourne footwear is that we have our very own global shoe company right here in our backyard.  Perhaps not a darling of the mainstream, but ask any authentic skater where they rate Globe in the footwear landscape and you'll hear a different slant on things.  Globe produced one or two of the biggest selling skate shoes of all time, and continue to support Melbourne's grass roots skaters, artists and musicians.  Doesn't hurt that they also have one of the best indoor skate ramps in the country at their Port Melbourne head office.  Helps keep the Shoemakers' photographers hanging around anyway.
