In addition to offering us stylish collections and eye-catching collabs (many articles available on this site), especially for the celebration of the 10th anniversary of his shop KITH, Ronnie Fieg honors his partnership with CLARKS by presenting a new drop of his exclusive line 8th Street.
As a reminder, Ronnie Fieg and CLARKS had announced to enter into a long-term partnership at the end of March 2021. The talented Queens-based designer would develop new models through his collection named 8th Street. The name of his line refers to the place where the young Ronnie Fieg began his career in the shoe industry and where he also discovered a passion for the Clarks brand.
This 5th collection is based on 4 Clarks models imagined by the founder of KITH : The Lockhill, Sandford, Breacon and Radlett.
These shoes are ideal for the cold months of the year with a hybrid look : the perfect marriage between a shoe and a sneaker, in a style inspired by the 90s.
They are made of a premium suede and nubuck blend and feature Clarks’ signature crepe sole. Each pair also features a double hangtag with engraved branding details.
The Lockhill is named after one of Clarks’ very first factories. It’s made of premium perforated Oxblood suede with smooth suede overlays in contrasting colors. Perforations on the heel accentuate the retro 90’s runner look. This silhouette comes in white/light brown/orange and white/pink/wine red.
The Sandford, named after Clarks’ first London warehouse, sports a lifestyle look and honors its roots in the fashion capital. Available in Dark Olive or Oxblood, it features a micro perforated premium suede upper that brings chic style and smooth suede overlays in tone on tone. Stitching on the top of the sole makes a statement.
The Breacon is inspired by Brecon National Park. Originally developed in 2014 for Ronnie’s former « World of Niché » project, it blends luxe elements with sneaker details. The silhouette benefiting from a neoprene collar is presented to us in 2 eye-catching new colorways : forest green and Oxblood.
The Radlett is the newest addition to the collection in forest green or honey beige. This silhouette appears as a modern version of the Chelsea boot. Classy and elegant, this classically styled boot is also very comfortable and practical. It features wide elasticated sides and 2 pull tabs, tongue and heel.
The Ronnie Fieg’s 8th Street x Clarks Originals FW22 collection is available since November 5, 2022, at selected retailers and online at clarks.com. Prices range from $220 to $230. Don’t sleep !
