About the brand


At first glance, Finnish footwear brand Karhu's aesthetic has a distinct retro vibe – and it's for good reason. The brand has been creating trainers since 1916, making a name for itself as the official footwear of the Flying Fins, the Olympic gold medal-winning track stars of the 1920s. Fun fact: following the brand's success at the Helsinki Olympics in '50s, it sold its three-stripe design trademark to another famous athletic brand that still uses it to this day. These days, you can expect bright and chunky vintage-tinged trainers, perfect for adding a pop of colour to your wardrobe.
