We’ve featured Karhu previously – it’s a small Finnish company taking advantage of its sportswear legacy by reintroducing classic designs under the Karhu Originals banner.
We previously highlighted the Karhu Field shoes, but if you’re after something more stripped down, check out the Karhu Originals Olympic trainers. These low trainers are available in leather or suede and in a range of colours. They’re so named because they were part of the Olympic uniform for the Finnish team in 1972 – but as they looked so good, the company decided to mass produce them.
They retail for around £70 – the Karhu site has a list of places where you can buy them. If there isn’t a place in your country, email [email protected] to buy online.
