In Full Bloom: The Karhu SS17 Drop - The Drop Date

In Full Bloom: The Karhu SS17 Drop


The upcoming KARHU SS17 DROP plays host to two packs that fuse together both the brand’s Finnish heritage and the country’s flourishing springtime environment.

After paying homage to Porvoo in a two-piece drop earlier last month, Finnish sneaker brand Karhu introduces a refresh on its previous pack with a springtime iteration of the brand’s Fusion 2.0 model. A home and muse for countless Finnish artists, the spirit of the Finnish town is expertly captured in the KARHU FUSION 2.0 (PORVOO REFRESHMENT PACK), drawing further inspiration from its vibrant red shore houses and clear blue waters to blend old with the new. Applied to the design of the brand’s popular Fusion 2.0 silhouette, the uppers are decked out in brilliant blue or dusty red pigskin suede, along with breathable nylon mesh panels atop a distinct white midsole, making for the perfect updated ‘90s runner.

Not stopping there, the spring offering also holds the KARHU ARIA (OG INSPIRED PACK), which encapsulates two OG-inspired colourways of the Aria model, paying homage to the premium running model’s original design, colours, and construction of its ‘90s heyday. In true Karhu fashion, the updated silhouette consists of pigskin suede uppers with nylon mesh at the toe for breathability. Marathon-ready comfort is retained in a mono-sock construction for a secure fit, with bonus aesthetic details added with a speckled midsole to one shoe. Dropping very soon, get yourself in the mood with shots below, captured by Berlin-based photographer, @runnerwally, and we think you’ll agree, nothing screams summer more than this drop!

The KARHU FUSION 2.0 (PORVOO REFRESHMENT PACK) and KARHU ARIA (OG INSPIRED PACK) are available from FRIDAY 21 APRIL. Shop the current KARHU range at FOOTPATROL by clicking the banner below.
