Finnish footwear brand Karhu has cemented itself as a sportswear staple, with the perfect blend of sportswear and streetwear, the brand is well respected amongst both marathon runners and sneakerheads. Established in 1916, Karhu has been generating great technical running gear for over 100 years. Originally labelled ‘Flying Finns’ and initially constructed in a small Helsinki workshop specialising in transforming locally sourced Birch into sporting accessories.
The Finnish footwear brand takes their name from the Finnish word for Bear. The brand has become a mainstay of both running and street fashion and has been worn by five boston marathon winners, Paavo Nurmi (famous finnish runner) and Mr. Kanye West has even been seen sporting a pair of Karhu. The brand has grown to see such success thanks to following the Finnish approach to design, focusing on quality, simplicity and purity of running.
