• Ronnie Fieg is a name who is running from brand to brand with amazing collaborations and has come to help design some of the most sought-after footwear releases in recent memory. Safe to say Fieg has helped rebuild the ASICS brand. Ronnie has done well at creating hype around shoes that traditionally were known for sitting on shelves. The simple start up of just giving color details to brands has now turned into fully redesigning some popular brands favorite styles such as Puma, Timberland and others. Thisgo round Ronnie partnered with the legendary Clarks to develop an original technical shoe that’s something of a “best of both worlds” release.
The design for this recent release is one we have never seen before. Using the method of creating a trainer upper and place it on a crepe sole to stay true to Clarks Originals and the company’s heritage. Ronnie shows his talents for color-blocking and material choice with Clarks’ iconic “holy grail of comfort” DNA for a fresh piece of footwear. Fixed with water-resistant pigskin suede, the Kildare features pigskin leather lining, Ortholite footbeds, and a natural crepe ripple tread sole. During this month two colorways will be presented exclusively through KITH and may very well help put Clarks back on the map with a new generation of footwear.
