Paavo Nurmi also known as the Flying Finn is a legendary track and field athlete from Finland. Karhu is a Finnish sports brand. So why not make a special iteration of the Karhu Synchron Classic that commemorates the Flying Finn. Consider it done.

The Karhu Synchron Classic does just that by celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Paavo Nurmi Games, which attracts top tier athletes to Nurmi’s hometown of Turku, Finland. The shoe consists of a Black and White upper constructed out of a combination of leather and mesh. Giving the shoe a custom feel is the rubberized heel panel that houses Nurmi’s signature as well as the insoles that list Nurmi’s countless accomplishments. Set to release on May 13th, let us know if you plan on picking up a pair.
