Ronnie Fieg X Clarks Kildare
Is Ronnie Fieg the man to resuscitate Clarks and make them universally loved again for more than their school shoes? Possibly, we'll have to see. He's made a start here, helping forge and launch a new Clarks casual model, the Kildare. As you'd expect, it's a premium piece, with an upper crafted from water-resistant pigskin suede sitting on top of a rough rubber crepe sole, while Ortholite footbeds give some spongey feels and a pigskin leather lining puts you in the luxury life tax bracket. The debut two colourways, a salmon-toed navy edition and an all-red loudmouth, are available now from KITH.
