About Karhu Running Shoes

A century of running meets over 40 years of Fit. Introducing Karhu, the Finnish running performance brand available only at Fleet Feet.

Meaning “bear” in Finnish, Karhu and its "Flying Finn" athletes have a legacy of dominant running performances thanks to continued advancements in technology. The brand's patented Fulcrum technology uses a runner's natural energy to create a smoother ride and keep all forces moving forward.

Karhu Running Shoe Technology

Ortix: Ortix is what gives KARHU its fit, which is based on data driven insights. Ortix refers to the shape of the midsole, volumes of the upper and overall measurements of the last.

Fulcrum: Karhu’s fulcrum technology uses your natural momentum as you run to propel you forward and create smooth transitions with each step.

AeroFoam: Lighter than EVA foams, Karhu’s patented AeroFoam is more resistant to temperature changes and provides cushioning that lasts mile after mile.
