Karhu honours cross-country ski world champion Harri Kirvesniemi with the fusion 2.0 "Kitee" Pack. Karhu ski’s were one of the first produced items in a small workshop located in downtown Helsinki where locally sourced birch was transformed into winter forms of transport. Worn by the Finnish army to world champions like Harri Kirvesniemi, who is part of the Karhu family as the official licensee of Karhu ski, cross-country skiing has helped to shape the brand.
To match the season, the material selection on both Fusion 2.0s consists of a mix of pigskin suede, water repellent nylon and lycra. Extra detail is included with speckled EVA midsoles and rope lacing to add an outdoor sport feel to the shoes. The Fusion 2.0 remains a salute to the original Fusion model from 1996, when it was one of the most technical running shoes in the collection.
