Ronnie Fieg’s personal collection predates most people’s love for sneakers, period. Repping Wallabees since middle school, the KITH founder came full-circle in 2008 when he connected with the brand for his first professional project. Fast-forward 13 years, Fieg and Clarks have reconnected — this time on a much grander scale — with Ronnie announcing a new partnership with Clarks Originals that sees the two embark on a new category of footwear.
Talks between Fieg and Clarks on this project began two years ago when Fieg explained his vision for the brand of them foraying into an untapped space that “sits between brown shoes and athletic footwear.” After seeing Fieg’s undoubtedly strong passion for this concept, the two decided to forge a new footwear division: Ronnie Fieg x Clarks Originals “8th St”
As Category Creator, Fieg will be introducing original silhouettes of his design executed with the pinnacle craftsmanship of Clarks Originals. Two silhouettes will be introduced this season, one of which is called the Lockhill, which Fieg has previewed in a tan, red, and forest green above and below, with other options likely to surface soon.
Grab a first look at the Fieg x Clarks Originals Lockhill, as well as Fieg’s announcement post, below, and ook for the Ronnie Fieg x Clarks Originals “8th St” collection to launch this April.
As always, stay tuned into our official Twitter account for further updates on the partnership.
