This might be something that sails right over the heads of any person under the age of 30.
Before he started HUF, Keith Hugnagel was part of another imprint, Metropolitan as a team rider. Originally founded in 1994, the label featured a ton of riders and quickly became a staple in the NYC Skate scene. Unfortunately the rise to glory was short lived, as the brand folded just 2 short years later.
Now just a little over 2 decades later, the once team rider turned founder is bringing back back the brand to life with its original spirit, but in the form of clean, locally-produced apparel rather than wheels. When asked why he decided to bring back the line now Hufnagel revealed, “This is me returning to my roots; it’s me giving back to skateboarding and keeping a brand alive.”
