ONE OF THE BRANDS THAT HAS TAKEN OVER THE SNEAKER WORLD IN THE PAST DECADE IS FINLAND'S KARHU, NO DOUBT. THIS SEASON, THEY SURPRISE EVERYONE ONCE AGAIN BY DROPPING THE M-RUNNER, A BRAND NEW SILHOUETTE DESIGNED IN COLLABORATION WITH VYNER ARTICLES.
The M-Runner was inspired by the golden age of gritty rock, and offers an aesthetic that highlights the uniqueness of each brand. It reimagines classic Karhu elements and blends them with the mood and feel of 1970s rock and heavy metal culture. The result is a fun and forward-thinking shoe that embodies the essence of both worlds.
Vyner Articles is the brainchild of Finnish designer, Heikki Salonen, dedicated to Artworkwear – everyday workwear for the creative ones. Karhu is a legendary Finnish footwear brand known for shoes and sneakers that are suitable for sport and everyday life.
The M-Runner features a nylon and hairy suede upper and a Karhu non-slip rubber outsole. The classic Karhu M-logo is crafted from leather and includes decorative stitching done in the V.A. initials. A heel patch with the Vyner Articles emblem print adorns the back, while a special designed label wraps the tongue. The M-Runner includes an additional lacing option and will launch in two colourways, Nectarine and Snow White.
