Serious runners and running shoe enthusiasts are already well acquainted with Karhu, being that it is one of the oldest sneaker brands on the map, but for the uninitiated, Finland’s flagship sneaker manufacturer is a legendary name in the world of athletics.
Running in Finland’s outdoor conditions takes dedication, and shoes to match. The Aria is an injection molded, performance silhouette from the golden days of chunky, cushioned 90s technology.
Every Karhu colorway tells a story, and this one commemorates Kahru sponsored, world champion Ford Escort rally driver Carlos Sainz Sr., the first non-Nordic driver to win the 1000 Lakes Rally in Finland. The use of Glacier Gray and Autumn Glory are directly linked to the car’s paint, decals and racing suits of the rally drivers.
This Aria 95 is composed of soft dyed panels of pigskin suede and water-repellent mesh with a Lycra elastic sock for support and easy entry.
