The Finnish woods provide more than just a sanctuary to animals and a natural setting for exploration. The forest produces organic and nutritionally rich foods like flowers, wild berries, and mushrooms. What might come as a surprise, they are all free of charge!
The Finnish term “jokamiehenoikeus” (don’t worry, we won’t test your pronunciation) roughly translates to “freedom to roam” or “everyman’s right.” This principle maintains that the country’s forests allow you to harvest almost anything your heart and mouth desires while respecting nature, property and the privacy of others.
To honour the tradition of gathering your own healthy forest foods, Karhu shares this curated collection of “Forest Treats.” Uniquely, the mixed pack consists of four silhouettes: Synchron Classic, Aria, Albatross and ChampionAir.
The Synchron Classic is styled with buckthorn brown suede and colour blocked nylon mesh is giving a sporty outdoor feeling. In contrast, the Aria receives more neutral gray suede panels with a bright red M-logo colour hit. The speckled EVA midsole, water repellent nylon, metal D-ring eyelet construction and rope laces compliment the connection to the outdoors.
The material mix for the Albatross and ChampionAir is tight nylon mesh and suede panels on die cut EVA midsoles. The berry inspired colour ways give an OG feel to these 70s and 80s silhouettes.
