A Cold Welcome To Karhu

Whilst WW1 was kicking off, Finnish company Ab Sportartiklar Oy decided to launch the Karhu brand. The company has an interesting history, and have made everything from Skis to javelins. They're pretty good at sneakers too, so we've decided to stock a few colour ways!

 

The Cross Country Ski Pack is an ode to the colours worn by skiers of the 90's and 00's. There are three new Fusion 2.0 colours available, and we're stocking womens from a UK5! 

 

During the 60's and 70's, Karhu's innovations included the first proper use of Nylon and air cushioning in their shoes. But before that, in 1952, they sold their three stripes logo to a certain unknown German brand going by the name of "Adidas", for the equivalent of €1600..
