Product Spotlight | Huf Footwear

Back in the late 80s and early 90s skateboarding thrived on a “do-it-yourself” mentality. It was not accepted by the mainstream; it was hiphop, it was punk rock, it was a counterculture.

Before Shaun White’s signature jeans landed in Target, the only way to get a product catered to skateboarders were through companies founded by skateboarders. Enter Keith Hufnagel,  the founder of HUF.

Hufnagel’s approach to streetwear and skate apparel remains deeply rooted in the rough, gritty, DIY mindset. His first love has always been and always will be skateboarding. He continues to give back to his roots through the products and opportunities he provides through the company, maintaining the respect and influence HUF has over the skateboard, streetwear, and sneaker communities.

We are proud to be an official dealer of HUF apparel and sneakers. Here’s what’s new from HUF on BuySkateShoes.

Throwback Thursday | Steve Olson – Fulfill the Dream

Today marks two years since Guru, the front man of the legendary hip-hop duo Gang Starr, died of a heart attack. Gang Starr’s songs are littered throughout skateboard videos in the 1990s and had a huge influence on an array of artists from Wu-Tang and Jay-Z, to RJD2 and Christina Aguilera (Preemo has in fact produced a hit single for Christina). To pay homage to Guru and DJ Premier, check out Steve Olson’s part in Fulfill the Dream where he skates to “Above the Clouds”, the last big Gang Starr joint to blow before the duo split up in 1998.
