Karhu, founded in 1916, was started by athletes to the Olympic winners and invented technologies such as the air cushion and the fulcrum ™, which are still used today in the running shoe collection.
Influence in sport means that you are enduring, memorable and measurable. In honor of this heritage, Karhu brings back a running shoe whose name says it all, “LEGACY”.
First introduced in 1996, the Legacy model featured an Air Cushion comfort zone, an air bubble in the heel and an EVA midsole to create a well-cushioned running shoe. The inherently stable design leaves nothing to be desired and provides a very comfortable ride.
Today, the Karhu Legacy 96 pays tribute to past businesses that have not been forgotten, while looking for future adventures.
