Karhu Mount Saana Pack is back with its 2nd edition available in two colors.
Fusion 2.0 /// US 8-12 /// 135€
Subdued hues and a calm look provide the aesthetic for the latest Karhu release. The design team looked to mute the outside noise and bright distractions from the colour palette. Turning to the brand archives, Karhu used a 90s silhouette called the “Trampas Plus” as inspiration. The Trampas Plus came in multiple one-colour, tonal editions like black, grey, and dark green.
The catalogue indicated these options as “stylish general purpose shoes” and were part of the walking collection.
The Synchron Classic features a dual density midsole unit, Air Cushion heel, and the unique “Synchron” lace construction across the forefoot. The model receives an olive night pigskin suede upper and water repellent nylon on the toebox and underneath the M-logo.
Synchron Classic comes in sizes US8-12 // 129€
Both Fusion 2.0 options feature a full pigskin suede upper with outdoor rope laces to complete the look. The first colourway receives an all black upper with grey accents on a grey midsole, while the second receives a grey upper with blue accents and an o-white midsole.
Fusion 2.0 Black comes in sizes US5-11,5 // 135€
Fusion 2.0 Grey comes in sizes US8-12 // 135€
”Paavo Johannes Nurmi is one of the most successful athletes in Olympic history and one of only two track and field athletes to win nine Olympic gold medals. Nurmi was a Finnish middle and long distance runner who set 22 official world records at distances between 1,500 meters and 20,000 meters. He was nicknamed the “Flying Finn” as he dominated distance running in the early 20th century. His twelve Olympic medals remain as the most ever received by a track and field athlete in the history of the Games.
In an era when all track and field athletes wore black racing spikes, Nurmi began wearing all white Kangaroo leather Karhu shoes. The colour concept of this release is dedicated to Nurmi’s trendsetting character and athletic accomplishments on the track.”

New style from Karhu: Synchron Classic in OG grey colorway in unisex sizes & white one for men. 129€.
”The Synchron Classic features a new compression molded EVA midsole which is current in most modern running shoes. The dual density construction remains true to the original version from the early 1990s. The upper materials have been improved to premium pigskin suede from synthetic overlays while the original mesh appearance remains true to the era. To modernize the silhouette, Karhu makes the Air Cushion technology both visible and functional in the outsole. Most importantly, Karhu keeps the unique Synchron lacing structure which served as a way to tighten the forefoot upon repeated use.”
