Throw it back to the early 80s and 90s when music was pure, fashion was funky and athletes were role models. It was during this era when the Karhu Athletic was first released. Designed for marathon runners logging high mileage, the Athletic became a popular model for its comfort and durability.
The ’84 colour way featured grey suedes, nylon meshes and hits of bright red to create a genuinely appealing classic. Digging through our archived catalogs and flashing forward 32 years, Karhu pays homage to the iconic Athletic colour way with a stylishly modernized version of the Synchron Classic.
The bright red (Scooter) nylon mesh, smooth pigskin suede, and dual density midsole creates an authentic look as part of the latest Karhu Legend collection. To complete the Synchron Classic Pack, Karhu releases a second colour way featuring a strong blue nylon mesh, pigskin suede and the traditional diagonal Synchron lacing system. Both colour ways highlight the Air Cushion design Karhu invented to increase cushioning in the heel.
Karhu wants you to join the team. You can start by picking up a pair of the Synchron Classic Original Pack at select stores around the globe on September 30th, 2016.
