Karhu and Fleet Feet Sports have teamed up to offer you a shoe that offers new technologies to benefit the way we run. Meaning "bear" in Finnish, Karhu and its "Flying Finn" athletes have a legacy of dominant running performances thanks to continued advancements in technology.
Karhu shoes use directional cushioning to allow less pressure under the foot and to reduce injuries. Each Karhu shoe features Fulcrum Technology that increases the rolling effect of the shoe creating better consistency while walking or running; without the rocker feel. Traditional shoes increase the bounce between steps creating greater instability and pressure under the foot. The Fulcrum Technology keeps all forces going forward reducing braking forces and uses your natural energy to create a smooth ride. The two models, we carry. The Fast and The Fluid, are neutral shoes with a 10 mm drop and a comfortable, spacious upper. Runners and walkers say they love the great step in feel and rolling effect. Come by and ask one of our specialist if this is the right shoe for you!
