KARHU Ikoni 2020


New year, new Ikoni.

The Karhu Ikoni 2020 builds on the shape that made it work for a wide range of runners. Designed using data from more than 100,000 3D foot scans taken at Fleet Feet, the Ikoni pairs a roomy forefoot with a heel that locks in the fit, making it a comfortable running shoe for beginners and experienced runners alike.

Plus, Karhu this year added a high-volume option, called the Ikoni HiVo, to provide even more options. The extra option gives you the same ride but with a wider width for a better fit.

Built on top of a lightweight and energetic AeroFoam midsole, the Ikoni uses Karhu’s half-length Fulcrum technology to add a fluid transition and a touch of stability. Fleet Feet runners tested the shoe for the Karhu Ikoni review, and they say it pairs a nimble ride with a comfortable fit.

The updated Karhu Ikoni combines an easy fit with a smooth ride to make it capable of knocking out your long run or picking up the tempo.

Kahru review

I have never owned a pair of Kahrus but after struggling with plantar fasciitis, they were recommended to me. The heel support is amazing and has enabled me to get back to running with little to no pain. I highly recommend this shoe!!

Felt great to start

These shoes seemed like a dream, I was excited to have a shoe that would help guide my gate better. I expected a break in time however I think my issue is I normally get my shoes snug. I listened to the associate who recommended I stick with a half size bigger than I was used to as the machine sized me at 8.5 I normally wear an 8. I have incredible heel pain in these shoes its bad enough that I can only do half my runs. I tried my old shoes on. They are smaller more comfortable. I think these would be great if I had stuck with a smaller size.

2nd time buyer

I bought the older version of these shoes last year and now ordering myself the 2020 version. I am a track coach at a local H.S. and recommend these shoes to my more serious athletes. They can take the mileage and help keep them injury free. I also recommend them to my running mom friends. Light, comfortable and sturdy.
