Back in the mid-1960s, running footwear options were limited, and “training” shoes didn’t exist. There were spikes for workouts and competition, but no shoes to warm up, cool down, or put easy miles in. Track and field athletes demanded a shoe they could do their everyday training runs in, so Karhu developed the Trampas. This time around it features a full suede upper with contrasting —and eye-catching—M logo, flat cotton laces, and the original Trampas box design.
Born in 1916, Karhu is Finland's legendary running brand. Following the Finnish principles of design simplicity and running purity, Karhu's shoes have an authentic heritage in running and a deep connection to the outdoors.
