Karhu was the first sports brand to develop a midsole system using air cushion. The air cushion under the heel and the elevated arch support considerably reduced strain on the knees, pelvis and small of the back.
Back in 1977, the Karhu Mestari made its debut and stayed as a fixed value until 1984. Forty years later, Karhu brings back the international hit that sold over 1,000,000 pairs globally. When it first launched, the Mestari was known for the patented Karhu air cushion midsole and the colourful design caught the attention of competitive runners. Today its a comfortable lifestyle sneaker - A great retro feel to this shoe and a store favourite!
