Agenda Sneak Peek: HUF FA’16 – Part 1

Cromer-Overview1

The Cromer, in a Vegan-friendly Blk/Wht & Mustard/Wht colorway.

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.

Soto-Overview

Fall 2016 offerings of the Soto, coming out sooner than later.

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.

Boyd-Premium-Overview

The Boyd, from HUF. Debuting in Fall of 2016 in 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.

Part 2 coming soon, catch up with our other ASP articles.

    Been waiting on a court style skate shoe for years. I used to really like the MJ 3 Lakai, that was an amazing skate shoe, some hideous colors came out, after its initial run, but that might’ve been due to the inexplicable popularity of the DVS Revival Splat and DC’s worst shoe, ever, the Court Graffik. Skateboarding is very monkey-see-monkey-do. I actually really liked the non SB Nike Classic, the actual Nike SB Classic was a horrible skate shoe, actually, along w/ the P Rod 2.5, it is the worst skate shoe I have ever skated. The puffy tounge they put in that shoe completely ruined the feel. Hope Huf makes a mid.

      you cant put shoe designs this old against this bro thats just not fair. stan smith debuted under smiths name in ’71. the vans era, known as the #95 then and designed by tony alva, came out in ’75. the authentic, then the #44, came out in fucking 1966.
      the vans era was the first dedicated skate shoe. thats like complaining that a toyota vaguely looks like a ford model T
      eat shit buddy

      i dont think you understood my comment
      skate shoes are vaguely going to resemble other skate shoes, and they do, and you cant fault companies, especially smaller companies, for doing that
      please learn 2 fucking read!! thanks

    so you don’t think this cromer shoe is a Vans aunthentic then ? you are saying it resembles but it actually looks the exact same aint it ? stitch fo stitch – silhouette identicals !!
    You cannot even use the word Vaguely in this circumstance – you were proud of yourself quoting numbers of models from the 70s etc – thats some good nerd shit right there – good story Brah!
    Now use your eyes……

      Damn José Chill, I don’t F w/ Adidas so Stan Smith is out of the question for me, I was talking about a skater owned brand making a court shoe. Funny calling JimBob a nerd, when you’re the one geeking out over a couple comments. Also, Stan Smith isn’t the first court shoe and certainly not the best, that’s a matter of opinion. Work on that skate nerd rage bro.✌️

    Who gives a fuck what the cromers look like though? obvi they look like an authentic with a toe cap. That aint gonna stop people from buying them cause the reality i they are a simple awesome skate shoe. If you want every shoe is skateboarding to be completely individual like the huf dylan or the supra estaban then your in it for the wrong reasons dog. Tbh anyone who actually gives a fuck is gonna be looking at how clean your trick as not if your shoe are crazier then everybody elses. Plus the simple fact that cromer released in my opinion a perfect commercial for a skate shoe. that makes everyone more willing to buy the shoe. Also the soto mid finally someone made a high cut cupsole other then the fucking dunks or some supra shit nobody has ever heard of. and its from a company thats known for thin stylish vulcs. This could be a gamechanger and im interested to see where the footwear goes in the future.

    At this point in the game, every skate shoe will in fact feature qualities from other shoes. I believe Brad even called the shoe an “era with a toe cap”. The point is that he made a shoe that he wears and skates, not just a shoe that was designed y someone else and handed to him. I think Huf is handling their footwear line exceptionally well, as all of the riders have been wearing their signature shoes regularly. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen a shoe released, the rider wears it for the initial debut, then you see them wearing some team model shortly after. In the case of Huf, that’s not the case. Huf is giving these guys complete control.

    On a side note, the new trip on the Cromers and Rieder slip ons are exceptional!
