This time the Finnish brand throws it back to the early 80s and 90s when music was pure, fashion was crazy and athletes were role models. It was during this era when the Karhu Athletic was first released. Designed for marathon runners logging high mileage, the Athletic became a popular model for its comfort and durability.
The ’84 colorway featured grey suedes, nylon mesh and hits of bright red to create a genuinely appealing classic. Today Karhu wants to pay homage to the iconic Athletic colorway with a modernized version of the Synchron Classic. The bright red nylon mesh, smooth pigskin suede, and dual density midsole creates an authentic look as part of the latest Karhu Legend collection. To complete the Synchron "Original pack", Karhu releases a second colorway featuring a strong blue nylon mesh, pigskin suede and the traditional diagonal Synchron lacing system. Both colorways highlight the Air Cushion design Karhu invented to increase cushioning in the heel. The official release of the Synchron Classic "Original pack" is set to hit selected Karhu retailers around the globe on FridaySeptember 30th, such as Kosmos,  Hanon and Patta.
