The second Ruska collection consists of three limited Fusion 2.0 colour ways. Each option consists of pigskin suede panels and water repellent nylon at the toe and midfoot sections. The gradient colour blocking is subtle like the changing leaves in nature, but the heel panel receives a seasonal colour pop.
The comfortable EVA midsole receives a black speckling treatment for added detail. Finally, the “M-logo” taping, D-ring eyelets and rope laces provide structure to the midfoot and outdoor look.
In Finland, RUSKA is a unique word that is used to describe the time of year when the aspen, mountain ash, and birch leaves begin to turn brilliant shades of gold, burgundy, and caramel.
The farther north you travel towards Lapland, the more intense the changing colours of leaves become to not only the trees, but also the surrounding bushes, vines and berries. Karhu invites you to celebrate the start of the autumn season with the “Ruska” pack.
The peak season of ruska’s deep and soft tones might only last for two weeks, but with the popularity of photographers traveling to capture Finland’s wilderness, communities far and wide are able to experience this farewell to summer.
