KARHU puts the spotlight on their mascot—the legendary Finnish Sportsbear, with the introduction of the Mascot Pack. This carefully curated collection is a celebration of KARHU’s very own bear, the symbol that adorns each of their shoes and by which they are known in the world of sport and fashion.  

Originally considered an object of good fortune, the mascot concept dates all the way back to the early 1800s. Sports organizations popularized the mascot by first using live animals as entertainment for spectators and intimidation for rivals. Over time, mascots evolved into larger-than-life caricatures whose job it was to excite fans and motivate athletes.   

While researching a modern-day face for the Mascot Pack, the KARHU design team was inspired by several illustrations from their archives —specifically the 1960s Trampas Bear and a 1980s comic strip that introduced Kris the Karhu Bear. 

For this latest drop, Karhu continues the story of Kris the Karhu Bear as he auditions to become KARHU’s newest mascot. 

Episode 1 features Kris wearing his “Fear Bear” mask attempting to cheer on runners at the annual KARHU Marathon. What will happen when this scary looking, costumed character approaches the starting line?

 

The Fusion 2.0 is a salute to the original Karhu ‘Fusion’ model from 1996 when it was the top running shoe in the collection. To bring back the ‘Fusion’ from the archives, Karhu reworked the model with its original designer and launched it as the Fusion 2.0.
