Karhu Fusion 2.0 “Mount Saana” Pack

DSC_7149_800pix

KARHU, meaning “bear” in Finnish, is a leading running brand in Europe and has provided technical running and outdoor gear for nearly 100 years. 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.

To make the release even more special, Karhu linked the shoes to the sacred Saana mountain, a popular trail and outdoor sports destination in Northern Finland. The “Mount Saana” pack comes in warm fall foliage colors like the seasonal Saana landscape appearance.

The upper consists of a mix of pig skin suede and water resistant leather. This material selection in combination with the hiking laces and the camouflage printed footbed gives this Fusion pack a trail running look and feel with a casual edge. The Fusion 2.0 has the soul of the 90s, but the style of 2015.
