Karhu from Finland was established in 1916 and renamed Karhu in 1920 (Karhu = Finnish for bear). Rooted in running equipment and known for world-class running sneakers, Karhu is the originators of the three stripes (which they later sold to a brand from Germany). Karhu was also the first company to patent air-cushioned shoes and pioneered basketball sneakers with the “Harlem Air.” Today, Karhu offers classics such as the Fusion 2.0, Champion, or Aria, check them out at SNS.
