KARHU puts the spotlight on our mascot the legendary Finnish Sportsbear, with the introduction of the Mascot Pack. While researching a modern-day face for the Mascot Pack, the KARHU design team was inspired by several illustrations from their archives specifically the 1960s Trampas Bear and a 1980s comic strip that introduced Kris the Karhu Bear. For their latest drop, they continue the story of Kris the Karhu Bear as he auditions to become KARHU’s newest mascot. The Fusion 2.0 is a salute to the original Karhu ‘Fusion’ model from 1996 when it was a top running shoe in the collection. To bring back the ‘Fusion’ from the archives, Karhu reworked the model with its original designer and launched it as the Fusion 2.0. This pair's mixed material upper is ready to rock with nylon rope laces that complete the outdoor inspired aesthetic. The cloud like cushioning from the EVA midsole absorbs impact and keeps you going all day.
