Following its close connection to the outdoors, the latest Karhu Legend release features updates to the Synchron Classic and Fusion 2.0 models. Inspired by the hiking and walking trails in Finland, the first release of fall 2017 incorporates durable, weather resistant materials and subdued colour ways to fit the season.
The main inspiration for Karhu’s Outdoor Pack is the Karhunkierros Trail, also known as the “bear’s trail,” a legendary path in Finland that welcomes thousands of nature and sports enthusiasts every year.
To honour the essence of outdoor purity, Karhu has used pigskin suede and water repellent nylon in the latest construction of the Fusion 2.0. A blue and grey speckled injected EVA midsole hints at the surrounding bodies of water viewed along the trail. Nylon rope laces complete the outdoor package feel.
When it comes to the Synchron Classic, Karhu packages the model with the same heritage and craftsmanship as the original 1995 version. The fall colour ways incorporate pigskin suede for a soft comfortable feel. The traditional Synchron Classic nylon mesh is tightly woven to limit water entering the shoe.
The Karhu Fall ’17 Outdoor Pack releases globally on September 2nd, 2017 at karhu.com and select retailers.
