Marking its first release of 2022, Finnish label Karhu is taking us on a journey of relaxation and mindfulness with its “Shinrin Yoku” footwear capsule.

Shinrin Yoku — also known as forest bathing — is the Japanese practice of spending time in nature for the purpose of meditation or healing. Disconnecting from the busy world and being present allows both the mind and body to experience what the environment has to offer through each of the five senses.

Drawing inspiration from this and the beauty of the forest its practiced within, Karhu introduces two new colorways of its epochal Fusion 2.0 silhouette. “Asparagus/Celadon Green” and “Dark Olive/Cress Green” iterations resemble trees, leaves, resin, roots, bark, flowers, berries, and herbs, and each sneaker also houses a midsole partially constructed of cork, which can be harvested without cutting down trees.

This limited release is set to drop on January 21 and will be available via the Karhu webstore.
