Karhu Synchron Classic Original Pack - The Drop Date

Karhu Synchron Classic Original Pack & Black Leather Pack – Release Info



In a continuation of its 100th anniversary celebration, Finnish heritage brand Karhu drops two new styles this weekend: the KARHU SYNCHRON CLASSIC ORIGINAL PACK and the KARHU BLACK LEATHER PACK.

The Synchron Classic Original Pack harks back to the mid-80s when the Karhu Athletic running shoe first made its appearance. Originally designed for marathon runners, the Athletic enjoyed broader appeal thanks to its comfort, long lasting build, and crisp style. The designers at Karhu have dug into the crates for their inspiration and reimagined the retro runner, adding contemporary touches without sacrificing any of its vintage appeal. With two simple colourways – red and blue – the Synchron Classic features an old school nylon mesh, along with smooth pigskin suede, a dual density midsole and Karhu’s patented Air Cushion outsole. The Classic also features the brand’s signature diagonal Synchron lacing system, which helps tighten the forefoot when the shoe is used repeatedly.

Switching gears to the Karhu Black Leather Fall Pack, this two-style collection is specifically designed for the shorter days and longer nights that mark the advent of the colder months – especially up in Finland, Kahru’s home turf. Appropriately, the two colourways sit on the darker end of the spectrum: the Aria is in Black and Indian Tan, while the Synchron Classic comes in Black and a colour our Finnish friends call ‘Wet Weather’. That doesn’t sound very cheery but the result is a stylish silhouette that’s ideally suited for the darker days ahead.

The black leather version of the Synchron Classic features the same traditional Synchron lacing system and Air Cushioning as seen in the Synchron Classic Original Pack. The Aria, on the other hand, features a modernized midsole and monosock construction for added comfort. You’ll also see in the photos that it includes orange detailing on the laces, upper and outersole, which reminds us of autumnal leaves, pumpkins and Halloween.

Both the KARHU SYNCHRON CLASSIC ORIGINAL PACK and the KARHU BLACK LEATHER PACK will be available on FRIDAY 30 SEPTEMBER from stockists such as Foot Patrol: click the banner below to check out the current selection.
