Finnish footwear brand Karhu is rich in athletic heritage and innovative design, utilizing its sporting history and archive to build a classic casual footwear offering that is synonymous with expertise, quality and craftsmanship. This item was produced by Karhu which is a Finnish sports brand that was established in 1916. The brand is also known for selling the iconic '3 stripes' to Adidas in the 1950s.
The Karhu Trampas first appeared in the 1960s as a running shoe designed with a focus on more regular training needs in mind. The introduction of design details including a more padded heel collar and better arch support, paved the way for the Trampas to be worn by both Finnish Olympians and everyday folks that appreciated its durability and casual style.
Fast forward to 2021, and after a successful re-introduction via collaborations with Amsterdam based skate label Pop Trading Company and Seattle based retailer LIKELIHOOD, the Karhu Trampas returns with this latest iteration of the shoe constructed from cow suede uppers and luxe leather linings.
Materials: Cow suede and luxe leather
