Finnish running icons Karhu present a locally inspired take on a classic seasonal motif, the changing leaves. The ‘Ruska’ pack takes its name from a term unique to Finland, which describes the time of year when trees like the Birch, Aspen, and Mountain Ash begin to display vibrant, deep hues of red and gold. With the peak time for this natural exploision of color lasting for about two weeks, the Finnish wilderness becomes a destination spot for photographers, tourists, and anyone else seeking to take in the sights.
This reworked version of the 96 classic brings a streamlined silhouette to the support and cushioning technology of the original. A rich suede/canvas upper, along with the hiking style laces, 3m reflective detailing at the heel and a neutral earth tone palette create a striking, casual look that’s as at home on asphalt as it is on the trail.
