Editor’s notes: I will never forget the glory days of HUF’s “Plantlife” socks. These were simpler times; our collective addiction to Tumblr, Supreme being at the top of their game, Odd Future was always together, cat prints were cool, and Nike Air Max 1s were everyone’s Air Max silhouette. At least, that’s how I remember the mid-2010s.
I was definitely guilty of owning a pair (or three) of Plantlife socks in some pretty bold colorways; my friends too. I haven’t caught a pair in the wild for the past five years or so, which leads me to believe they’ve become a relic of the past – but hey, who knows when TikTok will decide to revive them?
Either way, HUF is definitely more than just weed socks. The brainchild of professional skateboarder Keith Hufnagel, who sadly passed away two years ago, HUF has been an integral part of skate culture for 20 years. In its two decades of operation, it has connected the dots with sportswear giants Nike and adidas, delivering some pretty well-regarded drops.
When it comes to its relationship with Nike SB, the Dunk is a clear favorite, as it also served as the basis for their latest collab. Unsurprisingly, given the silhouette’s popularity among skateboarders.
This time around, HUF is celebrating its San Francisco home with a special Dunk Low edition. Much like the must-have “Panda” that dominated 2022, this palette pairs black and white tumbled leather, which is offset by a gray Swoosh and vintage-washed midsole, tongue and laces.
Additional details can be found on the shoe, with the HUF logo and Swoosh hardware appearing on the toebox, the SF Skyline on the heel, as well as orange collated “KEITH FOREVER” typography honoring the founder of the shoe. Mark.
