Shinrin Yoku, or “Forest Bathing”, is the Japanese practice of spending quality time in nature for the purpose of meditation or healing.
By disconnecting from the busy world around you and bathing in the atmosphere of the forest, just being present and experiencing all the environment has to offer through each of the five senses, Shinrin Yoku benefits both mind and body.
Karhu recognizes the restorative power of the forest and the importance of preserving natural spaces for future generations. Therefore, this latest release was designed with an eye toward sustainability.
The midsole of each pair is partially constructed from cork, which can be harvested without cutting down trees and creates less waste during the shoe manufacturing process.
Karhu has partnered with German non-profit organization, PLANT-MY-TREE®, to fund the planting of new forests. For more information, visit: https://www.plant-my-tree.de/en/.
Inspired by the beauty of the forest, both colourways invoke imagery of trees, leaves, resin, roots, bark, flowers, berries, and herbs and include custom moss print insoles.
This limited release is only available at select retailers in Germany and the US and http://www.karhu.com beginning on January 21st.
