Finnish sports brand Karhu is celebrating the release of its Fusion 2.0 sneakers for Spring/Summer 2020 with the release of the “True to Form” campaign.

The campaign has been shot by Bram Spaan, a photographer who chose to capture the skilled manufacturing process involved in creating a Karhu sneaker. By suspending the new Fusion 2.0 sneakers with color-matched pieces of thread, Spaan highlights the significance of a correctly-stitched upper and how the material is just as strong and flexible as it is integral to the shoemaking process.

Karhu’s upcoming Fusion 2.0s are available in two colorways — “Cameo Blue/Lily White” and “Rainy Day/Antique Moss.” The pairs combine premium suede with mesh, and sport a number of standout finishing touches such as 3M detailing on the toe box, the slogan “Finnsport” at the lateral rear-quarter, as well as 3M-threaded webbing along the mid-panels.

Elsewhere the sneaker features a full-length Fulcrum sole unit that encourages a smooth ride, a touch of leather at the rear, and hiking-indebted laces. Take a look at Karhu’s SS20 “True to Form” campaign imagery in the gallery above, and pick up both Fusion 2.0 colorways on March 13 from Karhu’s website, at its Helsinki concept store and at select stockists worldwide.

In other news, HAVEN has teased its upcoming collaboration with New Balance.
