Founded in 1916 in Finland, Karhu has gone from a small niche label to one of the biggest players in the sneaker game. Coming with a plethora of amazing trial like silhouettes and an abundance of brilliant colourways, this label is one of the best out there at the moment.
Although the instantly recognisable 'M' logo on the sidewall is now synonymous with the label, it hasn't always been this way. In 1951 Karhu sold its three stripes trademark to adidas for two bottles of good whiskey and the equivalent of €1,600. Imagine a world where adidas were not known as the 3-Stripe brand, this could of been the case if the Finland natives had their way.
Boasting amazing silhouettes such as the Fusion 2.0, Aria & Synchron, these trainers have celebrity fans as big as Kanye West and offer some of the best and most innovative materials around.
