Karhu 100th Anniversary Synchron Classic - “Paavo Nurmi"

$ 160.00

description

Paavo Johannes Nurmi is one of the most successful athletes in Olympic history and one of only two track and field athletes to win nine Olympic gold medals. In an era when all track and field athletes wore black racing spikes, Nurmi began wearing all white Kangaroo leather Karhu shoes. The colour concept of this release is dedicated to Nurmi’s trendsetting character and athletic accomplishments on the track. 

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Karhu’s founding, we collaborated with the Paavo Nurmi Games to honour the spirit of the Flying Finn. The Paavo Nurmi Games (PNG) is a Finnish track and field event that attracts top international talent to Nurmi’s hometown of Turku, Finland. This year represents PNG’s 60th anniversary and what better way to celebrate their success than collaborating with Nurmi’s choice of footwear brands.

Available at Alumni on Saturday, May 13th.
