Karhu looks upward to the sky for inspiration on the latest LEGEND release.
The “Linnut” Pack takes flight, paying homage to the thriving Finnish bird watching tradition.
Local experts guide bird-loving tourists in search of exotic arctic species like the red-flanked blue tail, hawk owls, Siberian jays and white-tailed eagles.
To the unfamiliar observer, spotting a rare bird in the wild, is similar to finding an exclusive pair of sneakers.The Linnut (Finnish for Birds) Pack’s colour palette is reminiscent of the rare collection of species found in Finnish nature.
The release features the Fusion 2.0 in three dierent colour ways.The material predominantly consists of soft suede and soft nylon mesh.
The rope lacing adds an outdoor feel and connection to adventure in nature. The colour ways vary from feather like blues, natural greens and light tans to soft greys and light rust.
The Fusion 2.0 remains a salute to the original Fusion model from 1996 when it was the most technical running shoe in the collection.
Karhu invites you on a bird watch outing and challenges you to spot the Linnut Pack in the wild! The three new Fusion 2.0 colours will release globally on Saturday, March 10th at retailers, Karhu.com and the Karhu Concept Store in Helsinki
