HUF Releases Limited Hoodie and Tee
HUF once again joins forces with the Harold Hunter Foundation (HHF) for a small capsule collection celebrating the legacy of the late Harold Hunter. The two piece collection is made up of an embroidered fleece hoodie reading ‘HAROLD’ alongside a graphic tee showcasing a black and white portrait of Harold with the message ‘LEGENDS NEVER DIE’.
Born in 1974, Harold quickly became a prominent figure in the NYC skate scene, traveling the world with the Zoo York team, appearing in TV shows, and starring in films such as the cult classic KIDS. Both natives to the city, Harold and Keith Hufnagel became friends in the 1980s, skating historic NYC spots such as the Brooklyn Banks, Washington Square, and Astor Place up until Harold’s untimely passing in 2006.
Available in limited quantities, the tee and hoodie are set to release September 17th, 2020 exclusively through HUF’s flagship stores and online shop. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to the foundation to benefit at-risk inner city youth.
Founded in 2002 by professional skateboarder Keith Hufnagel, HUF is a Los Angeles based manufacturer of premium footwear and apparel designed for contemporary skate and lifestyle. Inspired by Keith’s unique experiences traveling the globe as a skateboarder—and represented by a world-renowned skate team & group of ambassadors—the clean, classic brand aesthetic of HUF embodies a diverse array of cultural inspirations and ideas.
What started as a small boutique on an offbeat block of San Francisco’s Tenderloin District has now become one of the most recognized pioneering skateboard and lifestyle brands worldwide. Made by skateboarders, for skateboarders, HUF represents not only a more refined and forward-thinking skateboard brand, but also any individual inspired by the vast array of countercultures that parallel skateboard mentality.
