When it comes to kicks, call on KITH. Ronnie Fieg’s stalwart streetwear imprint does sneakers like no one else and its adidas Samba collaborations are second to none. Following the early spring three-way between KITH, adidas, and Clarks, Fieg and the Three Stripes are apparently dishing another special pair of collaborative Samba sneakers and, guess what? They’re just as nice.
First seen via social media sneaker leakers, KITH and adidas latest Samba collaboration is nothing if not classic. Comprising white tumbled leather uppers with panels of light grey nubuck and a splash of KITH-branded green on the heel, KITH’s new Samba colorway looks all the world like an OG adidas design but with just a smidge more flair.
These Sambas ought to drop in late May as part of the KITH Classics Summer 2023 collection, though KITH is obviously staying mum for now.
KITH has been nothing if not busy lately, what with its Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired New Balance 998 collection, which followed the aforementioned Clarks x adidas Samba.
Those aforementioned three-way adidas sneakers, which fused delicious suede Samba uppers with Clarks’ chunky crepe soles yielded a beautifully beefy take on the inimitable soccer sneaker.
Given all the hype around Sambas these days, anyone who’s willing to take the humble shoe in a more adventurous direction ought to be commended.
KITH is only just getting started, too, as it’s got much more in store come next season.
It’s funny that these rumored Sambas are part of the otherwise low-key KITH Classics line; it means that that KITH’s mainline Summer 2023 collection is likely to have even wilder collaborative fare.
