Karhu have been established since 1916, used by some of Finlands most legendary runners in the early days. Karhu shoes have won Olympic medals to Boston Marathons and everything in between.
After the successful re-launch of the 90s runner ‘Aria,’ Karhu is ready to elevate the Legend collection with another icon from the same decade. In 1996, the Fusion was the top running shoe in the assortment and to bring it back from the archives Karhu worked with the original designer. The sole unit and upper measurements were revised to make the silhouette more appealing. But, the original details like the tongue label and the rubberized collar print are kept.
The upper consists of a mix of pig skin suede and water resistant leather. This material selection in combination with the hiking laces gives this Fusion pack a trail running look and feel with a casual edge. The Fusion 2.0 has the soul of the 90s, with a contemporary style.
