Karhu Linnut Pack

Karhu looks to the sky for inspiration on the latest LEGEND release. The “Linnut” Pack Part 2 takes flight, paying homage to the thriving Finnish bird watching tradition. Local bird-watchers guide bird-loving tourists in search of exotic species like the red-flanked blue tail, hawk owls, Siberian jays and white-tailed eagles. To the unfamiliar observer, spotting a rare bird in the wild is similar to finding an exclusive pair of sneakers.

The Linnut (Finnish for Birds) Pack’s colour palette is reminiscent of the rare collection of species found in Finnish nature. This second release features a five pair combination of the Aria and Synchron Classic.

The material selection of the Aria consists of soft dyed suede, a perforated suede M-logo, and toe box. The colour blocking between the heel, arch, and toe creates a bold look like the feathers of the birds they are modeled after. The Synchron Classic remains true to the original version from the 90s with its iconic ‘Synchron’ lacing across the forefoot. The colourways appear more subtle and earthy with hues of blue, green and brown to provide a natural feel.

Karhu invites you to go on a bird watch outing and challenges you to spot the Linnut Pack in the wild! The two new Aria and three new Synchron Classic colours will release globally on Friday, March 23rd at select retailers, Karhu.com and the Karhu Concept Store in Helsinki.
