Always exploring its Finnish roots, Karhu drew inspiration for the latest Aria release from the dark polar scenery. “Polar Night” occurs in winter when the sun barely rises above the horizon, laying mystical dim light to the Nordics.
The Grey and Burgundy based Aria colorways pay homage to the time of the year when nature is filled with different shades of grey and the dim sunlight that peeks from horizon gives the skyline a darker red accent.
Both Aria colorways are fully executed in premium pig skin suede and come with 3M reflective details. The secure fit of the mono sock upper gives a sharp look to the shoe while improving the overall fit.
Originally released 20 years ago as a performance trainer, the Aria debuted when injection molding midsole construction was at the forefront of footwear engineering. The advancements in construction allowed EVA midsole shapes to become more complex and aesthetically captivating.
We are proud to have worked with Hamburg based sneaker blogger and photographer, Runnerwally on the mood photography for the upcoming collection. We hope you will like the work he did for Karhu as much as we do!
