RONNIE FIEG X CLAE BRADLEY
Clae was founded in 2001 out of the need for a new approach to footwear, which was to modernize the classic silhouettes to fit today’s active lifestyle. Versatile footwear that moves with you day to night, work to play that compliments a modern man’s wardrobe and life. Footwear that is designed for everyday living without sacrificing style or comfort.
Clae celebrates its 15th anniversary this year as an independent footwear brand, as they continue to shape their own niche by creating original cross-category silhouettes with versatile material executions. This focus and philosophy resonates with Fieg, as the Kith-founder consistently tries to develop product that is able to exist across multiple realms. This mutual ambition evolved into a collaboration, as Fieg applies his trademark penchant for quality to the all-new Bradley.
The Bradley is a court-inspired lifestyle sneaker, the Bradley's refined design gives it the capability to function in both formal and casual settings. Fieg balances this duality by utilizing a very high-grade vegetable-tanned leather that develops a beautiful patina during the course of wear. The heel tab is crafted from neoprene to easily take on and off the sneaker, while the custom-debossed leather insoles offer vast comfort. The upper sits atop an off-white rippled cupsole, further elevating the appearance of this model. Lastly, the Bradley is accompanied by two off-white lace options - one flat and one round.
