The brand adheres to the traditional Finnish principles of design simplicity and running purity, something that's seen in the two packs set to launch in honor of its centennial milestone. First up is the Synchron Classic Pack, featuring red and blue colorways of the Synchron runner, both done up in nylon mesh and smooth pigskin suede, along with a dual density midsole. They're joined by the the Karhu Black Leather Fall Pack, featuring the Aria in Black/Indian Tan and Synchron Classic in Black/Wet Weather, both designed to take on the cold weather months ahead. Look for the kicks to launch globally this Friday, September 30th.
