The teams at CONCEPTS and KARHU worked together to not only give the shoe an aesthetic upgrade, but the sole, silhouette and other details have been reworked to give this classic runner an update, whilst still staying true to its original design. The colourway pays homage to the brand’s homeland of Finland and, more specifically, the iconic Helsinki train station. The train station is known for its green copper roofs and glowing granite stone, which inspires the minty green shade that covers the toe and lace stay panels. Orange Finnish sunsets, and a vibrant blue sky provide the colouring for the sockliner and midfoot panels respectively, whilst navy on the heel helps to tone things down a little. Underneath, a crisp white midsole keeps things clean and lets the upper really pop, whilst a light grey outsole rounds things off. Custom printed insoles add the final detail, with a train station style information board graphic and CONCEPTS branding. The ARIA is a great looking retro silhouette… so we look forward to seeing what the Fins have in store for us in the future!
The CONCEPTS X KARHU ARIA 95 is set for a wider release on SATURDAY 11 JULY and online pairs will be available via our RELEASE PAGE, which you can link to below.
