THE ALBATROSS CONTROL, A STURDIER VERSION OF ITS PRECURSOR
An update to the Albatross 82, the Albatross Control reimagines a novel traction pattern from our past in a robust, slip-resistant package. While looking through Karhu’s back catalogues, our design team came across an early model of the Albatross that featured a sleek contoured heel counter and a unique non-slip outsole.
To compliment the enhanced outsole, we’ve added more body to the shoe, increasing the thickness of the midsole by adding an extra stripe of EVA for additional cushion and support. The Albatross Control also utilizes speckled rope laces and a plush nylon tongue with binding, a nod to the Synchron TBA, a model from the mid 80s, for added style and comfort.
