As sub-zero temperatures hit the states and elsewhere across the globe this January, HUF taps Australian-based Butter Goods for some southern hemisphere heat to produce a very rare and ‘extremely successful international business’ collaboration.
Founded in 2008, Butter Goods represents an eclectic mix of counter-cultural inspirations, melding together skate, music, and street style. Sharing similar roots in underground movements, the HUF x Butter Goods collaboration encapsulates both brands’ shared appreciation for creative expression and clean aesthetic.
