In working up its collaboration with Karhu, Concepts combed through the archives of the Finnish sportswear brand and ultimately landed on the classic ’95 Aria silhouette. The resulting joint venture updates both the shoe’s visuals as well as the build, with full suede construction mounted on a revised sole. The distinctive color scheme pays homage to the brand’s homeland, and more specifically, the iconic Helsinki train station, with its green copper roofs and granite stone. Orange and blue accents, symbolizing Finnish sunsets and the country’s vibrant blue sky complete the look. Look for the kicks to launch this Saturday at Concepts, both in-store and online.
