Updated December 21st, 2023: Kith has revealed a detailed look at their next installment of the 8th Street Samba by Ronnie Fieg for adidas Originals and Clarks Originals. A release is confirmed for December 25th at 11am EST. See the detailed gallery just below.
In the spring of 2023, Ronnie Fieg effortlessly merged the aesthetics of three household brands into a one-of-a-kind collaboration between Clarks, Kith and the adidas Samba. As Fieg and his New York-based imprint look to celebrate Kithmas this holiday season, the widely-regarded chunky Samba installment has returned in a festive colorway imbued with a classic crepe sole unit.
Designed with the Clarks Wallabee’s English stead suede, the low-top trim executes yet another richly textured upper anchored in a warm cream hue juxtaposed by dark tan-tinted mudguards. Imbuing the serrated 3-Stripes with a luxurious leather tooling, a trio of eggplant purple, dark blue and evergreen animate the profile logo for a festive multi-color treatment amidst the clad-neutral backdrop. Returning the deep blue shade for a lasting accent along the heel tabs, the contemporary effort concludes with a thick crepe sole unit underfoot.
For more 3-Stripes footwear, the adidas AE1 “With Love” releases on December 16th.
