In 2016, Karhu presents the Albatross-Elite as a more premium and detailed version of the classic. The Albatross-Elite features added depth on the upper with underlays of the M-logo, a padded tongue for increased comfort and a mix of materials including canvas on select colors. The midsole incorporates an extra EVA insert at the heel and adds flex grooves, a traditional 80s technology, to the forefoot for more comfort.
This new addition to the Albatross family remains true to the construction of the original shape and measurements of its predecessor. The Albatross-Elite and Albatross come in a multitude of colors and will be available at select retailers worldwide.
