You’ve surely heard of these guys when thinking sports kicks: Nike, Adidas, New Balance, Reebok, Puma. You probably even own a pair or two (of each, even). But Karhu? Odds on, that’s a no.

However, the Finnish brand is a global elite sneaker house with some of the best training shoes on the market. After literally running their business for more than a century, Karhu finally hit street-status recently when Kanye West was spotted wearing a pair.

The first to patent air-cushioned shoes, Karhu also pioneered basketball shoes, creating the classic Harlem Airs. The Karhu Fusion 2.0 is an update to a ’90s running shoe, the classic Fusion, originally released in 1996 and the original designer returned to the team for this special release.

Pick the Linnut Pack, Lunar Rock or Muted Clay models – all come in sensational colourways. Rubber gum outsoles and neoprene sock liners are just a couple of the dynamic features this solid running shoe has for your foot.
