Boston-based Concepts has teamed up with Finnish brand Karhu to craft a special edition of the Aria ’95 silhouette.
Working closely with the design team at Karhu, not only did the shoe get a visual upgrade, but the sole, silhouette and other details have been reworked to give this classic runner a respectful update to it’s industrial design.
The shoe pays homage to the brand’s homeland of Finland and more specifically, the iconic Helsinki train station. Green copper roofs, famed glowing granite stone, orange Finnish sunsets, and a vibrant blue sky help tell the story behind Karhu’s brand origin.
The Concepts X Karhu Aria ’95 was released on June 20th instore and online at Concepts.
