Kanye West‘s favorite Finnish sneaker brand Karhu returns to its roots this season with a new take on its Fusion silhouette. Dubbed the Fusion 2.0 OG, the latest iteration to come straight from the archives features a reworked body dressed in white and ultramarine green, printed lycra around the ankle and heel collar, along with webbing tape on the medial side. Finally the Karhu logo has been embossed on the upper midsection, while a red Karhu label, mirroring the original Fusion, takes the tongue.

The Karhu Fusion 2.0 OG then comes packaged in a special box that pays homage to its 1996 predecessor, decorated in the shoe’s original heel print and tongue label and comes equipped with a free Karhu x Finlayson towel.

Look for the Karhu Fusion 2.0 OG to hit Karhu’s concept store in Helsinki, Karhu.com and at select retailers worldwide this Friday, June 29 for $150 USD.
