The HUF Mateo has been graced with a graffiti twist thanks to legendary artist Eric Haze.

The intense, overlapping print is made up of the word HUF written in graffiti from different angles. The busy print turns out looking more like a pattern than typeface, but that's the whole point. This collaboration adds a lot of energy to the typically plane looking HUF shoes and makes them a conversation piece.

HUF didn't settle on just a pair of shoes for its collaboration with Eric Haze. Instead, they took the same print and created a five panel hat as well as a short sleeve button up shirt. Even while implementing this crazy graffiti design, HUF makes sure its branding is still visible with clear HUF markings on all the pieces seen here.
