Karhu Aria Leather Brown/Night Sky Trainer
Part of the Cross-Country Ski Range
In 1916, Karhu produced skis, which were some of the first items manufactured in a small workshop located in downtown Helsinki. There, locally sourced birch was transformed into winter forms of transport. Because the skis were of such high quality, the Finnish army and world champions chose to wear Karhu on their feet. In welcoming in the winter Karhu have launched the “Cross-Country ski” range.
Each colour palette in the Cross-Country range is inspired by the bright pops featured in the cross-country ski designs of the 90s and 00s. The material selection for the Aria consists of a mix of pigskin suede, water repellent nylon and breathable mesh.
The aria 95 features two technological innovations in running footwear: an internal carbon fibre fulcrum in the midsole for a smooth transition, and a mono tongue upper construction for added comfort. This iconic 90s karhu model is an easy to wear and comfortable shoe and remains an integral part of the karhu legend collection.
Karhu, meaning “bear” in Finnish, is a leading running brand, and has provided technical running and outdoor gear for 100 years. With an authentic heritage in athletics and a deep connection to the outdoors, Karhu follows the Finnish principles of design simplicity and running purity. Karhu shoes have been worn on the feet of the greatest Finnish runners.
