World renowned Amsterdam-based boutique Patta has teamed up with Finnish brand Karhu. The Karhu x Patta Fusion 2.0 celebrates 100 years since the running brand’s inception in 1916.
This retro runner is unique in that when the time came to liberate it from the Karhu archives, the silhouette’s original designer came back to update it. Now, for the brand’s 100th anniversary, Patta covered the Fusion 2.0 in a Peacoat and Byzantium colorway that utilizes dark navy premium pigskin suede, grey nubuck, and supportive mesh in magenta.
This collab also features minimal branding for a debut collab — just woven tongue labels and unique camouflage co-branded insoles — that keep it a bit more subtle and interesting.
The Karhu x Patta Fusion 2.0 is available now at Karhu’s online shop here but sizes quickly disappeared. Retail is set at $150 and the sizes available are unisex US men’s — too bad, cause my girl really liked these.
