Already a favorite amongst only the most handsome guys at the park, the Cromer is back in a few new colorways and materials to keep us satisfied with the return of the rubber toe. Two colors feature HUF’s Barrier Suede, a thick-cut treated suede that prevents excessive blowouts and one color is an all-canvas vegan option for those of you looking to reduce your carbon footprint. Additional colorways in the Cromer’s include your standard black/white & an always pleasing navy/gum.
While it may come as a shock to those who haven’t tried them, the Dylan Pro is surprisingly good for skating. Returning in two new versions, a white patent leather and black-oiled suede can be found in the FA’16 line- both of which are sure to compliment your style, whether you’re at a spot or on the dance floor. A long pointed toe gives superb flick, while the Infinity Rubber sole does a great job of keeping shape and putting off wear and tear as long as possible.
The already-classic Soto is back in a handful of colors. This cupsole is sure to keep your heels protected from impact while still keeping a low-profile look. The suede colorways also come stock with Barrier Suede to prolong the life of an already durable shoe.
HUF’s two new offerings for Fall 2016 take a step onto the court. The Soto Mid is a slightly altered version of its low-top predecessor, but with an added toe box and ribbed padding along the collar. The high top cupsole is a rarity for HUF and this one could take some serious steps outside the brand’s comfort zone. There are two colors in the first fall 2016 drop, one white, one black, both premium full grain leather.
The second new offering is the highly skateable Boyd. Essentially a court shoe atop a low-profile cupsole with Infinity Rubber, this shoe is meant to keep you steady on the board with a slimmed-down silhouette of a court shoe. The upper has blind seams to prevent rips and there are perforations along the tongue and side panels for extra ventilation. The Boyd is introduced in three versions, black leather, white leather, and black nubuck.
