Agenda Sneak Peek: HUF FA’16 – Part 2

Galaxy-Overview

The HUF Galaxy, in wine, grey & navy/gum.

In part two of HUF’s Fall 2016 Agenda Sneak Peek, we see some other team models updated with new colors and materials.

First, we have three new colorways of the Galaxy; a grey and a wine version, both on a white sole, and a navy on a gum sole. All three have uppers made of suede and canvas.

The Gillette - $85

Next up are the two pro models that are sure to please: the Gillette and the Dylan Slip-on. The Gillette features HUF’s Infinity Rubber and comes in a navy/gum suede version, as well as a black/white leather version.

Dylan-Slip-On-Light

The Dylan Slip-on returns in three new colorways: a charcoal/gum and a navy/white, both with a pig nubuck upper and the third a blacked out version with a cracked leather upper. This shoe features HUF’s Hydro-Snuff technology, which allows moisture to pass through, keeping your feet cool without trapping any sweat in the shoe itself.

The Classic is back in both its Hi and Lo iterations, with uppers of suede and canvas in various colors. This shoe features HUF’s Perf-Shock technology, which alleviates pressure from heavy landings by distributing it over small perforation in the footbed, while still maintaing shape. For Fall ’16, HUF collaborates with legendary skate brand, Chocolate on a Classic Hi. The two brands suit each other for a collab, creating another classic version of HUF’s iconic shoe.

      What skate shoe is the Gilette copying, and while the Dylan slip is a copy his Gravis model, it’s his design, in fact every shoe featured in this post, except the Classics, look pretty original.

    I like that they started to put suede on the sidewall within the stitching. Adds a lot of life to the shoe.

    Seeing Gary Rogers slam Huf for being on the Wal Mart site was a low blow, considering Emerica, his sponsor and more specifically, the Skateline G6 vulc were also sold on the Wal Mart site, apparently skateboarding has all the time in the world for haters. That all said, I personally think the Classics are kind of ugly, boggles my mind that that’s the shoe Huf chose to overdo, also the $80 price tag is a bit much. I guess they pair well with high waters, or capris, or whatever bandwagon people are jumping on this week. The Choice is an amazing skate shoe, so the Galaxy might be cool, just don’t like the deco stitching. If you’re going to to make a clean toe, commit. The deco stitching is pointless on a skate shoe, it speeds the wear and just makes the shoe look bad after it’s been skated.

      Totally hear what you’re saying. Deco stitching could be done well, if done tastefully, but of course that’s easier said than done. In most people’s eyes, the Nike EK1 did it best.

    Galaxy = Busenitz vulc? The 1984s and the arenas were sick. I haven’t tried the soto but I’ll probably pick a pair up.
