Infuenced by the spirit of the ancient moose Tarvas, Helsinki has spawned a new shoe brand. While diging a little deeper to its Finnish roots, the brand followed its vision to create footwear that resists the unpredictable weather of the Nordics and also keep the high aesthetic standards.
Tarvas is the perfect proof that footwear can take a beating from the weather and not look like a beater afterwards. So when you slip on these shoes and feel that most tender grip around your foot — you can be sure Tarvas is looking out for you.
After making an exclusive pilot launch of the brand last year, the premium functional footwear brand Tarvas is back with their second ever production.
Handmade in Finland with the finest premium materials, the drop consists of down to earth executions of their outdoor inspired Explorer silhouette. Like it was expected, the Helsinki based label designed the Explorer with the unpredictable Nordic weather in mind.
The shoes are dressed in supple nubuck, Italian suede and vegetable tanned full grain leather – all sourced from Europe. A weather protective mudguard sits around the entire foot, protecting from wet whilst providing a clean, minimal and timeless look. A sturdy natural rubber sole unit, subtle branding on the tongue and contrast heel patch complete the look.
The shoes are priced at 275€ – 325€ and available at select retailers worldwide, including: Peggs & son, Nous and Arts & Science from Japan. The full list of stockists here.
