The Karhu ChampionAir was released for the first time in 1977 and sold over 1.000.000 pairs until 1984. Forty years later, the Finnish brand brings back the ChampionAir that was also the first sneaker to feature a patented Air Cushion midsole.
In 2017, staying true to the original midsole construction, Karhu incorporates Air Cushion into this modern lifestyle version thanks to the release of three original colourways that were really popular in Spain, the Netherlands, Finland and Sweden. When in the late 70s the sport shops in Amsterdam received the Blue/White colourway, the queues were reported to be over 200 people...
Clean, classic and comfortable are the characteristics of this sneaker made with high quality nylon mesh and suede leather, masterfully finished with the dual density top surface midsole with Air Cushioning in the heel.
If you don't want to miss the comeback of this dope retro sneaker, save on your smartphone that starting from Saturday, August 26th, the Karhu ChampionAir will be available worldwide on karhu.com and through selected retailers of the Finnish brand, such as Sneakers76 and Sneakersnstuff.
