Synchron Classic Glacier Gray/Lake Blue
The combination of speed, endurance, and off road adventures intrigues Karhu to this day. In the mid-1980s,
Karhu sponsored a Ford Escort driven by famous rally world champion Carlos Sainz Sr. who was the first non-Nordic driver to win the 1000 Lakes Rally in Finland. Nicknamed “El Matador,” Sainz held the World Rally Championship record for most career starts until it was broken by Finnish driver Jari-Matti Latvala. The racecar driven by Sainz at the famous Calafat Circuit inspires the “Rally” Pack concept.
The category of shoes known as the Synchron first made their debut in 1980. As the assortment got bigger over the years, it was always easy to recognise the group by the unorthodox lacing system on the toebox.
The research and design team wanted to provide a better fitting upper and came up with the innovative lacing system for added comfort and durability. The Synchron classic, the 90s edition within the Synchron category, remains a comfortable model featuring an air cushion unit and a stable heel cap.
