Spring comes late to Finland as snow only starts to melt during March. Flowers slowly get the chance to bloom and the green grass begins to emerge from frosted grounds. As the sun beams brightly over the white snow, anticipation for warmth spreads amongst the community. While the rest of the world enjoys spring, Finland has to wait a little longer, but eventually it comes and it starts in “Maaliskuu” or Finnish for the month of March.
Finding inspiration in the comforts of "Maasliskuu", Karhu brings the first spring release of the Fusion 2.0 with fitting colours for warmer weather. The first colour way of the pack features yellow at the heel and toe cap in soft pigskin suede, while overlays of white leather and grey mesh wrap the foot. A bold blue “M-logo” completes the package of the re-styled 90s performance model.
The second colour way hits with deep green at the toe and heel panels and packaged with subtle grey mesh and white leather overlays. The purple “M-logo” pops the silhouette to create a stylish option for the collection.
On March 30, 2017, you can find the Karhu "Maaliskuu" Pack at select footwear stores worldwide. Spring has sprung, let’s get outside!
