We are delighted to welcome a new footwear label to our brand line-up for AW17, KARHU. Manufacturers of technical runners and outdoor gear for 100 years, KARHU is an established running label from Finland. KARHU follow the Finnish principles of design simplicity and running purity boasting an authentic heritage in athletics with a deep connection to the outdoors. KARHU trainers have been worn by some of the great Finnish runners including Paavo Nurmi and five Boston Marathon champions.
Its latest offering is the ‘Outdoor Pack’ that consists of the Synchron Classic and the Fusion 2.0 silhouette. A pack of three that draws inspiration from hiking and walking trails in Finland that feature durable, weather resistant materials with colours that match the current season. The Fusion 2.0 is crafted with pigskin suede and water repellent nylon uppers with a blue and grey speckled injected EVA midsole, finished with nylon rope laces to complete the ‘outdoor’ feel. The Synchron Classic gives a nod to the original silhouette with the same heritage and craftsmanship as the ’95 version. The autumnal colourways include pigskin suede for a soft and comfortable feel and the traditional nylon mesh is tightly woven to limit water entering the shoe.
The KARHU ‘Outdoor Pack’ is launching online on 02/09/17 at 00:01 and in-store from 09:00.
