The Tarvas Spring/Summer ’21 Range Features Some of Finland’s Finest Footwear
Fledgling Finnish footwear aficionados Tarvas have been quietly carving out a name for themselves with their outdoors-ready offerings rendered in lush materials. The Explorer was the brand’s debut model, immediately finding a niche following of enlightened sneakerheads and considered shoppers searching for something a little different.
Spring/Summer ’21 sees the Tarvas Explorer continue its expedition into using nappy suedes in all sorts of tasteful earth tones, hot oranges, and reds, plus shades of deep navy, while also continuing highly functional mesh editions. Tarvas have struck the balance between picture-perfect form and real-life usefulness, as these attractive colourways are protected by practical design cues like rubberised mudguards and DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coatings. Low-profile cleat tread patterns paired to classically styled foam wedge midsoles provide reliable grip and comfort that can easily handle a night on the town, or a weekend in the woods. Not to mention leather footbeds and lining inside that’ll only get better with age. Tarvas Explorers are also thoughtfully available in women’s size ranges.
Check out the little lookbook that the Tarvas team have shot in the Finnish wilderness, ahead of experiencing the Explorer in the flesh at its tightly-allocated global boutique retailers. These include Norse Store in Denmark, Peggs & Son in the UK, and Big Trouble Store in Australia.
