We previously featured Karhu as one of the three retro-inspired European sneaker brands to look out for, and today, the Finnish footwear imprint has launched its “Outdoor” pack. Featuring the Synchron Classic and Fusion 2.0 models, the pack’s designs upgrade heritage models with premium materials such as pigskin suede and nylon mesh across three styles inspired by the Karhunkierros Trail (aka the “Bear’s Trail”), a storied path in Finland that attracts hikers and nature enthusiasts from around the world. There are two fall-appropriate colorways of the Synchron classic and one Fusion 2.0 model that features distinctive nylon rope laces.
The Karhu “Outdoor” pack will launch on September 2 at select retailers and online at Karhu’s web store. Flip through the photo set above and share your thoughts on this style of runner below.
