Karhu, founded in 1916, has been on the feet of Olympic winning athletes, and invented technologies like air
cushion and fulcrum™, which is still used in the running shoe collection to this day. Influence in sport means you
are long lasting, memorable, and measurable. In honour of this heritage, Karhu brings back a running shoe with a
name that says it all, the “LEGACY ”.
First introduced in 1996, the Legacy featured an Air Cushion landing zone, sandwich construction heel cap, and
an EVA midsole to make a well-cushioned running shoe. Leaving no wish unfulfilled, the inherently stable design
provided a comfortable ride. Today, the Legacy 96 pays homage to past endeavours not forgotten while looking
for future adventures.
The material selection features premium Italian leather in the original white and purple colourway. The panel
design stays true to the initial construction along with softly threaded, shiny mesh for breathability. The sublimated print on the footbed highlights the shoe’s Air Cushion heel, which gives added cushioning. The Legacy 96
is launched in a special box that arrives with an extra set of grey/purple laces for a unique look.
To introduce the Legacy 96 OG, Karhu worked with photographer Bram Spaan to artistically showcase the link
between the shoe and the brand’s running heritage.On August 16th, The Karhu “Rally” Pack is globally available at select retailers, Karhu.com and the Karhu
Concept store in Helsinki, Finland. The next time you take to the roads, trail, or step behind the wheel, you’ll
want the Karhu Rally Pack on your feet.
On August 24th, the Karhu Legacy 96 OG pre-launches at Karhu.com*, the Karhu Concept store in Helsinki,
Finland, and a limited group of premium retailers. To assist with the launch a special gift is provided: a bag that
functions as both a tote bag and a rucksack. Karhu encourages you to celebrate your own Legacy by picking up
the latest drop.
