KARHU Taps Hanon for Highland Games-Inspired Legacy 96

Having teamed up with the likes of Patta and Footpatrol in the past, Finnish sneaker and lifestyle brand KARHU has now tapped Scotland’s finest for its latest collaboration: Hanon.

Marking the duo’s inaugural collaboration, the upcoming Hanon x KARHU Legacy 96 “Highland Games” is inspired by, as the sneaker’s name suggests, the Highland Games. For those who need a few notes, the Highland Games are an annual event celebrating Scottish tradition and Celtic culture that dates back hundreds of years to a time when clan chiefs and noblemen were entertained by trials of strength and physical endurance.

The pair draws from the spirit of the games and boasts a rich color scheme associated with highland dress and the great outdoors. In terms of construction, the Hanon x KARHU Legacy 96 “Highland Games” is made from premium materials including rugged suede and mesh, while pony hair detail appears throughout as a nod to the kilt sporran. The bespoke tartan pattern appears on the footbed along with the custom-made box in which the pair is packaged.

Interested readers will be able to purchase the Hanon x KARHU Legacy 96 “Highland Games” when it releases this Friday, May 6 via KARHU.com, the KARHU Store Helsinki, and the KARHU Pop-up Store Verona. The pair will retail for $160. For more upcoming drops, check out our Sneaker Release Dates Calendar.
