Mestari Control is a classic sneaker from Karhu that launched in 1977. When it first launched, the Mestari was known for the patented Karhu air cushion midsole and the colourful design caught the attention of competitive runners.
These sneakers are part of the Karhu x Universal Works collaboration released on April 6th 2023. The brands have come together for a collaborative project, part of Universal Works’ ongoing Future Friendship series. This meeting of minds celebrates Karhu’s heritage and the Universal Works philosophy of working with like-minded partners who share their authentic vision of peace, love and, in this case - sole.
A muted colour palette keeps the collaboration feeling unified. Keeping to a Navy, Ecru and Khaki vibe guarantees these pieces will be easily integrated into existing wardrobes.
The Mestari fits true to size.
