Clarks Originals

Brand: 8th Street by Ronnie Fieg for Clarks Originals

Season: Fall/Winter 2021

Buy: Online at Clarks' website and KITH

Editor's Notes: Four months after its initial launch, 8th Street — the Clarks Originals sub-label helmed by KITH founder Ronnie Fieg — is still going strong. No longer sold exclusively via KITH, the brand is seeing wider release at Clarks, too.

The 8th Street lineup is comprised of two dressed-up sneakers: the Lockhill and the Sandford. Named after one of Clarks' first repair factories, the former is a suede low-top finished with a thick crepe midsole reminiscent of the Wallabee.

Similarly, the latter is coined after Clarks' first warehouse in London. Boasting a streamlined profile not dissimilar to Nike's Air Force 1 Low, the Sandford is a timeless style that works with sweatpants or trousers.

By now, Fieg's far-reaching influence on fashion and culture is apparent. Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, KITH — Fieg's wildly successful brand and retail store — boasts locations in New York, Miami, Paris, and Tokyo.

The brand has also worked with a lengthy list of collaborators across fashion, art, and even food: Versace, Coca Cola, and Nike are just a few of Fieg's many famous friends.

With 8th Street, Fieg continues his cultural cross-pollination, merging Clarks' history and heritage with his own — the label's name refers to the Greenwich Village street where Fieg used to work at footwear store David Z, his entree into the world of sneakers.

For Fall/Winter 2021, Fieg is launching a few new models, including the chelsea boot-like Radlett and the Breacon runner, which launch alongside new editions of the Sandford at KITH's website and stores on October 8.
