The HUF Soto is available in men’s sizes. It has a low profile, which allows the ankles to have a full range of motion in each stride. That helps the wearer keep up with rapid, random foot transitions. Moreover, it uses a traditional lace-up closure—with seven reinforced eyelets—to lock the feet in with full adjustability.
Looking clean and basic, the Soto has the makings of becoming classic staple sneaker. So it goes without saying that the Soto pairs perfectly with casual staple outfits such as jeans, pants, shorts, chino—the clothes a person wears when he or she goes around town to run some errand or leisurely roam around the place.
Talking about variety, the Soto comes in a wide range of colorways to suit anyone’s style. Here’s a couple of them: wheat, arrow wood, taupe, pine/navy, welded red, welded black, black/gum, white, and white/black.
Forward-thinking, the Soto masterfully covers the great qualities of the cupsole and the vulc. Though at a glance, it may strike one as a vulc because of its silhouette. However, it remains mainly a cupsole as its defining quality is its unbelievable durability, which is only particular among cupsole models.
Founded by pro-skater Keith Hufnagel, HUF began as a small boutique offering skateboarding goods in San Francisco. Due to its rapid growth, Hufnagel decided to make a label of its own, thus launching HUF, an independent maker of skating footwear, apparel, and premium goods
With the slogan "made by skateboarders, for skateboarders," HUF is focused on bringing out genuine, high-performance skate shoes. The Soto, a simple-looking yet technical sneaker, is among the brand’s fresh drops.
- Some colorways have perforated uppers, which are designed to be breathable.
- The insoles are removable so the wearer can put on their orthotics of choice.
