If you're looking for a sneaker brand that's a bit off the beaten path, consider Karhu, the Finnish label that's been in business since the early 1900s. Karhu's heightened profile in 2017 means that new fans have connected with the brand's classic footwear models, including the Synchron Classic and Fusion 2.0, both of which are releasing as part of the new Outdoor pack. Inspired by the Karhunkierros Trail, aka the "bear’s trail," a legendary path in Finland that draws thousands of nature lovers each year, the pack features a blend of pigskin suede and nylon mesh across three styles. There are two fall-ready colorways of the Synchron Classic, joined by a lone Fusion 2.0 model that's distinguished by nylon rope laces. Look for the kicks to launch September 2nd through select retailers, as well as online at karhu.com.
