The Kildare is an all new hybrid silhouette designed specifically by Ronnie Fieg for Clarks with the intent to introduce the classic brand to a new demographic. Trainer-inspired characteristics are mixed with Clark’s traditional crepe soles that stay true to the brand. Designed to coexist in both rooms in the Kith flagship store, the Kildare fits right in for both the sneaker and alternative footwear spaces.
The Salmon/Grey colorway features smooth premium nubuck with pigskin leather lining and a pigskin toe, while the bold Poppy Red Kildare is constructed with an all premium pigskin suede and pigskin leather lining. Custom tongue branding and perforations on the quarter panel, tongue and vamp add a modern touch.
Both colorways are limited to 500 pairs each and come with the option of a flat lace or a two-tone rope lace. The Ronnie Fieg x Clarks Kildare in Salmon/Grey and Poppy Red will release on Saturday, April 26th, 2014 at 11am EST exclusively at the Kith pop-up shop (66 Bleecker St.), Kith Brooklyn and KithNYC.com for $160 USD.
