Finnish sneaker label Karhu turns its attention to its iconic Legacy sneaker series, which was first introduced in 1996, naming it the Legacy 96. It brings life back to the Legacy 96 OG, nodding to its debut in all its glory, with the same Air Cushion landing zone element.
Additional details that are highlighted in the return of the model are the sandwich construction at the heel cap, the EVA midsole, and the cushioned details for comfort and function. The uppers are constructed from premium Italian leather materials in purple and white hues. Notably, the Legacy 96 OG arrives in a special box that comes with an extra set of laces in gray and purple. If the footwear is purchased in stores, a matching tote bag is also complementary.
