Sneakersnstuff comes together once again with Finland’s finest sportswear brand, Karhu. Presenting the Aria, Karhu’s mid 90s mono sock classic.
Finland plays host to 187 888 lakes that populate 338,424 km² of Nordic land. With that in mind Sneakersnstuff found their inspiration in the brands native landscape and of course, the water.
The shoe’s upper has been fully outfitted in pigskin suede and features a clear outsole, which resembles the above-mentioned water. The collaborating partners are highlighted on the sublimated water printed sock liners, another reference to the concept. To top it off, each pair comes with 3 sets of laces with aglet branding.
The Sneakersnstuff x Karhu Aria ”The land of a thousand lakes” drops July 8th at all Sneakersnstuff locations and online. The Global release at karhu.com and Karhu titan accounts will be on July 29th, 2017.
