Karhu Albatross 82 Navy / White
Our first delivery of Karhu shoes in our store and we are so excited!
Karhu first started in Helsinki in 1916. In the 1970's they invented the world's first Air Cushion midsole, which stirred attention and was copied by many prominent shoe companies thereafter. Originally launched in 1982, the Albatross was one of the most iconic Air Cushion models - a lightweight runner that appealed for both men and women. Now Karhu goes back to the roots and brings this iconic model back to life.
We love our Albatross shoes (which we bought in Helsinki some years ago). They are a super comfortable street shoe, and perfect for travelling or when you want a stylish shoe that you will be walking in all day.
This pair is a part of the colorful Gelato Collection, which is inspired by many ice cream flavours enjoyed by the Finns. The material selection consists of a mix of pigskin suede and nylon mesh for breathability. In addition, the Albatross 82 is updated with the original outsole and midsole design to give it a more authentic look. In terms of comfort, the upper is slightly wider, a new moulded footbed is included and the tongue is softer and longer.
Please see sizing chart for further details.
We are expecting a wider selection of shoes and sizes in 2020. Please contact us directly if you are interested.
