The Fusion 2.0 is a salute to the original Karhu 'Fusion' model from 1996, when it was the top running shoe in the collection. To bring back the 'Fusion' from the archives, Karhu reworked the model with its original designer and launched it as the fusion 2.0. This item was produced by Karhu which is a Finnish sports brand that was established in 1916. The brand is also known for selling the iconic '3 stripes' to Adidas in the 1950s.
For this drop, Karhu collaborated with Dutch creative director Maaike Riemens to produce stunning visual representations of each silhouette. Riemens’ unique aesthetic and intricate collage work is the ideal medium to bring to life the subtle details of the collection. As part of her creative process, Riemens cut and manipulated numerous print reproductions of each silhouette into engaging, eye-catching arrangements.
