Haroshi’s trademark look is inevitably a colorful thanks to his trademark material selection of recycled skateboard decks. So when the triple team of Haroshi, DLX, and HUF got together for the footwear portion of their collaboration, you expect the resulting pair to be on the bright side of things. Quite the opposite, with this special edition of the Hufnagel Pro going for a tonal concrete gray tone on the suede upper. Remnants of Haroshi’s influence are certainly present though, with the insole boasting a snapshot of his work and the fire hydrant emblem on the heel area being a nod to one of his sculptures from the accompanying show. Fortunately for you, the sneakers can be had online now at Premier. Hit them up to grab a pair before they’re gone after you check out the full photos we’ve got after the jump.

Haroshi made his mark on the sneakerhead scene in late 2010 when Mark Parker was photographed holding the Nike Dunk High crafted from the Japanese artist’s medium of coicee: stacked and carved skateboard decks. This signature multicolor ministripe motif has now carried over into what’s gotta be HUF’s best non-Nike collaboration to date, and one that shows that Keith Hufnagel’s namesake label is still up and running strong despite the closure of their Cali storefonts. This project brings HUF and Haroshi together with Bay Area skateboard distributors DLX triple up to bring us some crazy sculptures along with the HUF Hufnagel Pro with an impressive insole, along with a variety of apparel celebrating DLX’s various brands. Click through to see more of the Hufnagel Pro, including its Real Skateboards tie-in on the heels, and grab your selections straight from HUF before they’re all gone.
