Karhu has dived into the world of Moomin for its second drop of 2022, to release a two-piece sneaker collection which celebrates the cherished Finnish series.

Created by author and illustrator Tove Jansson in 1945, the Moomins are a family of carefree, adventurous trolls from the eponymous Finnish storybook series. Following a duo of Moomin-centric drops in 2020, Karhu returns to Moominvalley for two fresh takes on the Fusion 2.0 and Aria 95 silhouettes.

The epochal Moomintroll graces the upper of each sneaker, which on the whole takes direct influence from the story of Moominpappa at sea. The Fusion 2.0 arrives in hues of “India Ink/Chambray Blue” to evoke the Moomins’ journey at sea to find a new home, while the Aria 95 is doused in “Dawn Blue/Sleet” and utilises a sturdy mesh and a reflective M-logo as a nod to the rocky island lighthouse where the family eventually lands.

Both silhouettes adorn splashes of red which are inspired by Moomintroll’s scarf, while vibrant geometric patterns highlight the colors of Moominvalley.

The full Karhu x Moomin collaboration is set to drop on February 4 and will be available from the brand’s online store.

In other footwear news, thisisneverthat has previewed its New Balance 860 V2 collaboration.
