I did as a kid in the early 80s, as did most of Finland, and then when they launched the Karhu Originals line about 15 years ago, I bought a pair of made in Finland Supergreens and another pair of blue and white Champions. Sadly, they have moved the manufacture abroad now, which is a deal-breaker for me.

I saw these on the bus today, though, and thought they looked good:

definitely understand your frustration with the overseas manufacturing of an iconic brand, but those new Karhus do look nice, I always have liked that color in a sneaker.

Interesting to note (well to me anyway) that Jack Purcell sneakers were made by the BF Goodrich company. A famous old American tyre maker, now owned by Michelin of France.

Re: The Question of Sneakers

Black plims! That's the problem really John was always a rocker at heart. Yoko appears to have gone fully Berlin with her choice of clothes.

I believe that Goodrich also made PF Flyers!

As am I. My next sneaker purchase is the Saucony Jazz, though, and I've been wanting them for so long I can't lose my focus now...

Re: The Question of Sneakers

/\  Saucony Jazz are comfortable Beebs, I have some, worn them on and off for years, used to get them at Paragon for $35 circa '97, they were a great bargain ... recommended .....

that being said, I'm with both Woof and you in wanting a pair of Brooks Chariots too, I like the way they lace up, think they look cool .....

Re: The Question of Sneakers

^ Oh yess!!! Marilyn wearing Keds there, maybe?  I have never seen this film, but totally dig Keith Andes' look.. the sneakers, the chambray, the HBT dungarees... also the way he wears his belt here. Great stuff, and just the kind of thing I'm into at the mo.
