Breaking bread with friends and family is a tradition as old as time.
To celebrate Finland's 100th year of independence, Finnish sports brand, Karhu, and French fashion retailer, colette, share their nation’s famous dough with you. Finland’s braided Pullapitko bread and France’s croissant are served up as the symbols of companionship on the Fusion 2.0. The colours reflect the image of the Finnish flag and the retailer’s iconic look.
This collaborative Fusion 2.0 features full grain leather with added perforations for detail. In order to highlight the project’s uniqueness, both the shoe and a special shoebox are ‘Made In Italy’.
The shoebox graphics and sublimated footbed are inspired by the breaking bread concept and receive images of the Pullapitko bread and croissant.
The Fusion 2.0 is primarily off -white in colour featuring touches of blue along the tongue and heel collar. The white midsole and gum outsole create a distinguished, yet athletic look.
The Fusion 2.0 showcases colette blue webbing tape in the shape of the “M-logo” and a Karhu bear logo on the heel. The collaboration comes with three sets of outdoor laces to allow a customized look.
