After a successful introduction of the fall 2017 “Outdoor Pack”, Karhu looks to back up the release with a refreshed second edition. Inspired by the hiking and walking trails in Finland, the second pack consists of two colour ways of the Aria, a Synchron Classic and the Fusion 2.0. In addition, the collection draws its colour direction from the mid-90s Karhu outdoor catalogue. To fit the season, the drop incorporates durable, weather resistant materials and subdued colour ways.
The main inspiration for Karhu’s Outdoor Pack second edition is the Karhunkierros Trail, also known as the “bear’s trail,” a legendary path in Finland that welcomes thousands of nature and sports enthusiasts every year.
When it comes to the Synchron Classic, Karhu packages the model with the same heritage and craftsmanship as the original 1995 version. The fall version is inspired by the mid-cut cult classic, the “Karhu Corsair”. The colour way incorporates the same pigskin suede for a soft comfortable feel and stylish look. The traditional Synchron nylon mesh is tightly woven to limit water entering the shoe.
