KARHU presents its new Fusion XC

There is a new member of the KARHU family: the Fusion XC. The model was released back in 1996 and quickly became one of the top running kicks from the company.

Get to know KARHU

Fun Fact: The name 'KARHU' comes from Finnish and means 'bear'. Did you know that? The brand is one of the leading running brands and has been offering running shoes for 100 years. With a deep connection to nature, KARHU follows the Finnish principles of simplicity and purity in running.

KARHU products such as hiking boots, backpacks, tents, canoes and paddles were featured in Finnish sporting goods catalogues as early as the 1930s. The same adventurous spirit of yesteryear still guides the design process today - as seen in the latest KARHU Fusion XC.

Karhu Global Lifestyle Manager, Remko Nouws, comments:

"These days it is all about the outdoor trend and even though we have a rich history making product for outdoor activities, we wanted to see where it would go to. We kept an eye on all things happening in the market and acted by developing a conventional silhouette with a premium look and feel that has all technical features needed. Basically, a hybrid that can be worn in everyday life but also on your weekend hike, an addition to our Fusion family, the FUSION XC."

The KARHU Fusion XC

The Finnish brand sat down with the original designer for the Fusion's comeback. Together they reworked the original design before introducing the Fusion XC.

The Fusion XC comes with a mesh upper and suede overlays. Rope laces and a grippy sole under a Fulcrum sole unit make the Fusion XC perfect for the outdoor adventures ahead.

The Kick comes in three new, outdoor-inspired colorways. We can look forward to 'Aztec', 'Abbey Stone' and 'Gunmetal'.

The Fusion XC comes in a distinctive retro look. As with many of Karhu's other models, this kick comes with an 'M' on the side.
