LEGACY 96 OG
Maybe it’s the very simple fact that running in the Finnish wilderness, especially during the winter months, isn’t an activity liable to attract a lot of trend-hopping dilettantes, but Karhu have always been regarded a true runner’s brand. As such, even their heritage offerings are presented with the brand’s legacy of top of the line athletic performance firmly in mind.
Karhu first released the "Legacy" back in 1996. Adding a cushioned "landing zone," sandwich construction heel cap and EVA midsole, the new features provided an extra level of comfort to the brand's growing catalogue-- one which had already proven itself fit for Olympia-grade runners.
Twenty-three years later and the Legacy returns in its original purple-and-white colorway. Dressed in premium Italian leather with shiny mesh panels and a sublimated print on the footbed for added cushion, the Legacy OG pays homage to "endeavors not forgotten while looking for future adventures."
Bodega is one of only 10 retailers in the US to carry the Legacy OG re-release. So cop it if you can.
