[metaslider id=124824]   Before Keith Hufnagel had his own store in San Francisco, and way before he launched his brand HUF, and way way before that brand ended up in places like Walmart, he was just a professional skateboarder making his way through the skate industry trying to pay his bills.  One of the companies Hufnagel rode for during that process in the 90's was Metropolitan. The New York City based brand had a solid team at the time, including Ryan Hickey, Gino Iannucci, Giovanni Estevez, Mike Hernandez, Bobby Pulio, Javier Nunez, and more, before folding in 1996 after a short 2 years of being active. Today Hufnagel announced that 20 years later, he's bringing back the brand he once rode for saying "This is me returning to my roots; it’s me giving back to skateboarding and keeping a brand alive."
