Back in the 1970s Karhu invented the first air cushion construction in the world. It stirred the attention and was copied by many prominent shoe companies. Today you still find it in the Karhu Albatross 82 Lifestyle sneaker.
The original air cushion shoe
Initial launch: circa 1982
Back in the 1970s Karhu invented the first air cushion construction in the world. It stirred the attention and was copied by many prominent shoe companies. One of the most iconic air cushion shoes was the Albatross 82. A lightweight runner which appealed to both men and women. Karhu reaches back in to the archives to launch an exact replica of the iconic model.
The Karhu Albatross 82 deep navy/white became a permanent colour combination in the Albatross 82 collection.
