KARHU’S LATEST COLLECTION CELEBRATES FINNISH HEROTAGE

Karhu’s latest collection pays homage to it’s Finnish heritage.  It’s for this reason Karhu chose to travel to Porvoo, Finland’s second oldest city founded over 800 years ago.

The “Porvoo Pack” consists of the Aria and Synchron Classic, each receiving distinct treatments. The Aria is full pigskin suede and perforated at the toe and on the “M-logo”. A speckled midsole adds detail on what was once a premium running model in the 90s. The Aria is dressed up in two bold colour ways associating back the historical town of Porvoo with rich o reds and deep blues and greens. The Synchron Classic is the second model in the pack which hits with striking colour blocked pigskin suede, original nylon mesh and the notable cross lace through the toe box. The Synchron Classic features an air-cushioning unit in the heel, which is visible on the outsole. The first colour way incorporates a brilliant Poseidon blue toe, black mesh and grey tones in the heel while the second colour way hits with o red tones in the heel and subtle greys through the toe and midsole.

Look for the Karhu “Porvoo” pack to drop March 9th at select retailers including Sneakers76.  They will retail for approximately $138.00 USD.
