For the second part of the Marathon Pack, Karhu was inspired by a popular running route in Helsinki, Töölönlahti. The running area is located next to the Olympic Stadium and the statue of legendary Finnish runner, Paavo Nurmi. The area is one of the most common places in Helsinki to run and train.
In Beamhill we will have two shoes available from the “Marathon” Pack: Fusion 2.0 (below) and Aria 95 (above), both in sporty colour blocked options.
The white and off-white leather parts used on both of the shoes are inspired by the white aesthetics of the Alvar Aalto designed Finlandia Hall, one of the many sights on the scenic running route. The suede overlays on the Fusion 2.0 are inspired by the wooden part of the training path, and the bright coloured suede panels of Aria 95 represent the color schemes of the ’80s and ’90s running shoes.
The Marathon Pack will be released on Friday, June 12th, 2020 in unisex sizes in-store and online.
