Shoe Pick #13 – Karhu

Brand: Karhu
 Fulcrum Star
Electric / White
Price: £65

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.

About Tom McCluskey

My name is Tom, and this is my blog! I'm 19 years of age, and just beginning my 2nd year of a BSc/BA Product Design degree at Bournemouth University, UK. Otherwise, I live at home in Romford, London (not Essex!) during the summer period. Design is something I'm taking ever more seriously in life. Starting my degree, hoping to explore a field I had dabbled in with GCSE Graphics at school, design has gradually become something of an obsession. Shoe/Trainer/Sneaker design is something that particularly interests and inspires me, I'm quite the "sneakerhead", and I plan on using this blog to showcase my journey through university, and beyond. When it comes to extracurricular activities, I'm a big fan of sports, football and badminton in particular. West Ham United are my team, and you'd struggle to find a more passionate fan. Just ask my girlfriend, I was absolutely delirious when we won the play off's final against Blackpool earlier this year, COYI! Anyway, I hope you enjoy what I've got to showcase here in my blog, thanks for dropping by. Tom.
