Karhu Aria “Birch & Juniper” Pack
Helsinki, Finland (February 16, 2016)
Capturing a natural aesthetic, Karhu ventured into the woods for inspiration on the latest Aria release. Finnish birch (koivu) and juniper (kataja) trees, respected for their life sustaining properties, provide the color themes for the spring release.
The highly flammable birch wood can catch fire even when wet and is often used by woodsman to light fires when in need of warmth. Symbolizing new beginnings and cleansing of the past, “koivu” colors of light brown, tans and soft greys are accented with the blues and yellow of the spring months.
A juniper tree twists and turns into unique shapes like a great journey and signifies the ability of staying true to oneself. Leaving winter behind, “kataja” colors of blue and orange represent the berries while the green and tans portray the leaves and rich forest soil.
The uppers of both Aria colorways are constructed with premium pigskin suede. The material selection and 3M reflective hits give the pack an earthy feel without compromising integrity. The Fulcrum midsole and mono tongue construction ensures an unparalleled level of comfort.
