The Moomins x Karhu Aria 95 Grey Stellar is the latest collaborative effort from Finnish footwear label Karhu. The brand honours its Nordic heritage by joining forces with another Finnish native - the late Tove Jansson, the famed author and illustrator behind The Moomins. Karhu delved deep into Jansson’s archives and decided on graphics from the 1957 book “Moomin Midwinter” showcasing one of the beloved characters skiing.
The Aria 95 is a clean-cut runner silhouette that has been the blank canvas to multiple previous collaborations. It’s crafted from plush suede panels with perforated sections throughout to ensure airflow is consistent. The pair follows a colour-blocked design using notes of orange, blue and grey for a considered look.
The Moomin graphic takes pride of place at the rear of each shoe, with typeface embroidery reading “MOOMIN” featured on the lateral side, replacing the usual Karhu branding. Beneath the foot a clean white midsole offers foam cushioning to ensure optimal support when worn over extended periods.
The Karhu x Moomin Aria 95 “But No High Hill” is available now at retail price via select retailers in the links above. If you’re looking for a collaboration that will stand out amongst the ordinary don’t hesitate to add this pair to your current rotation.
