The idea behind this never before seen silhouette was to create a trainer upper and place it on a crepe sole to stay true to Clarks Originals and the company’s heritage. Ronnie’s eye for color-blocking and material choice mates seamlessly with Clarks’ iconic “holy grail of comfort” DNA for a fresh piece of footwear. Done up in water-resistant pigskin suede, the Kildare features pigskin leather lining, Ortholite footbeds, and a natural crepe ripple tread sole. Two colorways will release this April exclusively through KITH and may very well help put Clarks back on the map with a new generation of footwear aficionados.
