Karhu Fusion 2.0 OG

Finnish brand Karhu looked into their archives for their latest release. The Fusion was the brand’s top running shoe in the 90s. Working with the original designer, the sneaker’s sole unit and upper measurements were revamped for a more modern look, leaving the tongue label and the rubberized collar in place to create the Fusion 2.0. The Fusion 2.0 OG is the latest iteration straight from the archives, featuring a reworked body done in a white and green color scheme. The printed lycra around the ankle and heel collar, as well as the webbing tape on the medial side are stand out features of the sneaker, while the Karhu logo embossed on the upper midsection and a red Karhu label on the tongue, that mirrors the original Fusion, rounds out the overall look. It comes in a special box that pays homage to the 90s predecessor, decorated in the sneaker’s original heel print and tongue late and  comes with a free Karhu x Finlayson towel. The Karhu Fusion 2.0 OG is currently available at rime’s Brooklyn location.Screen Shot 2018-06-28 at 1.44.35 PM Screen Shot 2018-06-28 at 1.44.56 PM Screen Shot 2018-06-28 at 1.45.07 PM Screen Shot 2018-06-28 at 1.45.18 PM Screen Shot 2018-06-28 at 1.45.38 PM Screen Shot 2018-06-28 at 1.45.53 PM Screen Shot 2018-06-28 at 1.46.21 PM Screen Shot 2018-06-28 at 1.46.38 PM
