In sad news, HUF Worldwide founder, Keith Hufnagel has died following a brain cancer battle. Hufnagel’s death has definitely sat the skateboarding and streetwear world on its head.
Keith “HUF” Hufnagel was in the midst of a two year battle with the disease and unfortunately succumbed to it with his wife, Mariellen, friends and children by his side.
We are absolutely heartbroken to deliver the news today that HUF founder Keith Hufnagel has passed away. Keith battled brain cancer for the past 2.5 years. And though he beat the odds and fought back much longer than his diagnosis permitted, he ultimately and unfortunately lost the fight.
Keith was not only the “HUF”nagel in HUF. He was the heart and soul of this brand. He built and brought together a community of people like no one else could.
Keith paved the way for all of us – as a respected professional skateboarder, shop owner, brand founder, footwear and apparel designer, creative director, and industry leader. He showed us how to do it, and how do it right.
Keith loved skateboarding and the culture around it. He did things his way and did them for the right reasons. He inspired so many of us across the globe.
But above anything else, Keith loved and supported the people around him. He would do anything for his friends, family and children. He passionately wanted to see others succeed. And we all loved him for it.
Keith’s legacy will continue to live on at HUF. Today, tomorrow and forever.

Supreme has been in the headlines as of late with the subject being the closing of some of its stores so this latest move could be closely related to the circumstances.

With COVID-19 putting everyone’s mental state in the dumps, and the CDC prompting the government to recommend self-isolation and quarantine, the once crowded streets of some of the busiest cities now seem like ghost towns.
As part of their REDirect Project in 2014, The Berrics enlisted Russell Houghten to imagine Los Angeles with no busy traffic or people around in this ‘Urban Isolation’ video entry. There is a shocking and eerie similarity between the video and today’s current climate.
