Finnish sneaker label Karhu has unveiled a new pack of its Fusion 2.0 silhouette celebrating the label’s legacy in track and field. The two colorways both reference different aspects of track and field, with a particular focus on the competition surfaces and their different colors and materials.

The first sneaker in the pack is a nod to modern stadiums, and features a dark blue suede heel and light blue suede front palette. The second colorway features the same suede panelling. The orange heel is a reference to the reddish-brown color of running tracks, while the front section comes in bright green, a nod to the grass used in events such as javelin and discus. The “Track & Field” capsule will drop on August 18 at the Karhu web store, Helsinki concept store and other select retailers.
