In Finland, Architect and Element Advocate Janne Saario is surrounded by an abudance of lakes and forests. Sparsely populated these places welcome seclusion from city life. They are places that allow reflection and the opportunity for inspiration to be found and taken back into the city.
Part of the Element Emerald Collection, the Catalina looks to these open waters and takes inspiration from the classic Deck Shoe. Just as Janne combines the influence of nature with his knowledge of skateboarding; so we've taken our inspiration to bring a natural progression in skateboard lifestyle footwear.
