Karhu is one of these sneaker companies that aren’t in it for just the hype. The Finnish brand established in 1916 and named Karhu in 1920 (Karhu = Finnish for bear) is a classic running shoe company famous for world-class running trainers on tracks around the globe. Famous for its three stripes, which they later sold to a brand from Germany, they produced athletic shoes with great international reputation. Karhu was the first company to patent air-cushioned shoes and pioneered also on the basketball shoe market with the Harlem Air. With the Fusion 2.0, Champion or Aria Karhu has some of the most iconic silhouettes in their assortment and we have them in-stock.
