We’ve all heard the origin story of Nike: Bowerman and Knight imported Onitsuka runners from Japan, then decided to do it all themselves. A proper success story. This was in 1964. Even older is adidas, which Adi Dassler founded in 1924. But even older is Karhu, which equipped the good people of Finland with running shoes in 1916. How amazing.
Anyway, this crep features Karhu’s signature zig-zag three-stripes (three-stripes before adidas?!) in a lovely tea rose colour. It’s subtle, soft. We’re big fans. You should definitely grab yourself a pair from Pockets.
