Size and fit

The Hupper 2 Hi’s collar provides both ankle support and protection. Its foxing tape around the shoe is also raised higher than most vulc shoes. That provides it with more depth of fit, and thus a more stable, protected ride, with lesser chances of ankle rolls.

Furthermore, this high-top model is fastened with a traditional lace-up closure, with nine reinforced eyelets, which secures the feet in with a lockdown custom fitting.

HUF Hupper 2 Hi Style

Neither having too much nor too little, but just right—that is the style the Hupper 2 Hi exudes. Though it has an unusually high foxing tape, the rest of it looks clean and subtle. Its simplicity makes it so versatile. It’s the same you would wear for hitting the skatepark and walking around town.

The Hupper 2 Hi fits well with casual, laid-back clothing—for example, a pair of denims or khakis (ripped or regular) or cargo pants. Even a staple tee-shirt finishes the look splendidly. Lastly, this model is available in a variety of colorways, such as white/navy, black/white, navy, moss green, and brown.   

Notable Features

HUF mostly focused on board feel and control, but in the Hupper 2 Hi, the brand aimed more at cushioning. The Perfshock footbed has perforations, which trap air into its pockets in different densities. This feature results in a superior rebound and impact protection.

Besides that, the padding is thinner at the heel and forefoot but thicker at the midfoot are, This is to achieve a balance between board feel and cushioning. Additionally, the footbed is removable to accommodate orthotics

HUF Hupper 2 Hi History

To accompany the Hupper 2 Lo, HUF releases the Hupper 2 Hi. These two were derived from one of HUF’s earliest designs, the Hupper “Numero Uno.” It was a flagship model. Using their T1-KCUF reverse engineering technology, HUF improved the old Hupper’s design and made it perfect for skateboarding. Now equipped with updated materials and technologies, the new Huppers are no hops but rather leaps in innovation.
