January 26, 2023 | in Books

This is long overdue and one for the literal history books. Our good friends at HUF have kicked off the new year with something special: a monograph celebrating their 2 decades! Founded in 2002 by Keith Hufnagel, the 20 Years of HUF hardcover book documents the first 20 years of the brand through interviews with the friends, creatives, crew, and personalities that continue to push it forward. Along with anecdotes from the OGs, the book features a deep dive into the brand’s work, including key collaborations, artwork, behind-the-scenes photography, artifacts, ephemera, and the pieces that never were.

“HUF has always been provocative,” longtime collaborator Haroshi says of the brand. “HUF is not a brand started by a random rich person, but by a real skater. Skaters make noise sometimes.”
