Editor’s Notes: Finnish sports brand Karhu has joined with colette for a special collaboration celebrating Finland’s 100th year of independence. Each respective outlet in turn shares their nations famous dough (Finland’s braided Pullapitko bread and France’s croissant) as a nod to the age-old tradition of breaking bread with friends.

Carried out on the Fusion 2.0, the colors have been chosen to represent the Finnish flag, as well as colette’s signature look, as the sneaker and its special shoe box have both been made in Italy. The graphics on the box and the footbed then draw inspiration from the aforementioned breaking bread concept.

Coming with three sets of outdoor laces, the colette x Karhu Fusion 2.0 “Breaking Bread” lands in-store and online at colette December 9.

Now be sure to cast your vote for the sneaker of the year.
