Original Story (12/13/23): The triple collab of the year is making its return! Back in March, Ronnie Fieg launched his first collaboration between Kith, Clarks Originals, and adidas Originals: the 8th Street Samba. This hybrid footwear silhouette featured the upper of the classic Samba done in premium suede, combined with the iconic crepe sole of the Clarks Wallabee. The 8th Street Samba was a big hit, quickly selling out in its initial release. After many struck out on the launch, Fieg appeased the demand by making the 8th Street Samba available for pre-order.
To cap off 2023, Kith is now dropping new colorways of the 8th Street Samba as part of the brand’s annual Kithmas festivities. Both of the “Kithmas” iterations feature cream-colored suede upper with grey suede T-toe overlay. The key difference between the two colorways lies in the side stripes, with the “Core Black” colorway featuring the Three Stripes in black leather and the “Collegiate Green” in a tri-colored mix of green, navy blue, and crimson.
The Kith x Clarks Originals x adidas 8th Street Samba “Kithmas” drop is set for Christmas Day, December 25th, releasing exclusively via Kith. Grab a preview below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates.
