A Cowboy named Trampas
You might be wondering how Karhu came up with the name Trampas? Which is a good story, according to Karhus' old sales manager, Karhu employees in the early 60s were huge fans of the American TV series "The Virginian." One of their favorites was a cowboy named Trampas and quite by chance the name Trampas is reminiscent of the Finnish "Trampata", which in Finnish means to march or stomp. It all went up in a higher unit and the Karhu team continued with the name Trampas which ended up being Karhus first training shoe.
