Ronnie Fieg and Clarks Originals Present Season 4 of Their 8th St. ColabRelease: 25 March 2022
Kith are gearing up to release their Spring 2 collection this week, and among the 78-style (!) assemblage is a six-pack of new Clarks Originals sneakers from Kith founder Ronnie Fieg and Clarks' 8th St. partnership. Serving as the creative director of the partnership, Fieg – who's been known to be a prolific collaborator – has centred 8th St.'s fourth season around two new silhouettes, the Rossendale and the Maycliffe, as well as brought back the popular Breacon in two fresh colourways.
The Rossendale is a low-cut suede silhouette with a Wallabee-like toebox and forefoot, sitting atop a thick crepe sole and featuring a debossed graphic on its lateral heel. It's available in classic earthy tan and olive colourways. On the other hand, the Maycliffe provides a slightly more trim look, with woven, moccasin-like trim around the toebox, a perforated midfoot and a branded badge on its tongue. Stone and reddish-brown colourways have been produced, and both are completed by a similar thick crepe sole.
Last but not least is the return of the Breacon, which offers the pack's most vibrant styles with two new colourways. Arriving in blue/white and dusty mauve/grey/white colourways, the Breacon infuses plenty of athletic shoe DNA into its lifestyle-geared build with a heavily-layered suede upper that houses a neoprene sock collar. Branding is relegated to the heel tab, and – you guessed it – crepe soles round off each look.
If any of these Fieg-ified Clarks strike your fancy, you'll be able to cop them on the Kith webstore and at the brand's retail locations (save for the Aspen shop, which will not have stock) March 25, when they release at 11 AM EDT as part of the Kith Spring 2 collection.
