Ever heard of Karhu? Me neither, not until an hour or so ago, and a browse through the GQ Magazine ‘Sneaker of the Week’ section. This is the Fulcrum Star, Karhu’s flagship casual ‘original’ shoe. Founded in 1916, Karhu are a Finnish footwear company, specialising in running shoes. The Fulcrum Star was originally released in 1986 as part of their ‘Fulcrum Series’, and have been brought back for this summer.
Out of all of their colourways, this yellow & white version is my favourite of all. Check ’em while they’re hot, they look awesome, and you’ll never see someone else kicking ’em.
