Ever since the early days, Karhu knew that a good start in life was important. Our little ones were not forgotten, and proper footwear was part of Karhu’s catalogue for decades.
One of the shoes we have in our archive is the kid’s version of the Albatross 82. Since this silhouette is already a staple in our collection, we decided to kick-off the Karhu LEGEND kids category with the Albatross 82.
Following the introduction of the Moomin Kids collection, it’s time for three of our most popular and original colours: black, navy and grey. The shoes are made of synthetic suede and mesh, and are all animal-free. Instead of normal laces, the kid’s versions come with a Velcro strap and elastic laces. The footbed is decorated with a bear paw design, which helps you to choose the correct size. To do this, take out the footbed and place the foot on it, make sure that the toes do not pass the claws. This leaves around 1cm at the top and ensures you have a correct fit.
