Divided Opinions: The Kith x Naked Adidas CS2S Has Sneakerheads Torn

Kith has a pretty damn high batting average when it comes to collabs.

From Asics to New Balance to adidas and more, they can really do no wrong in the eyes of the general sneaker-loving public, and it seems that each of their new releases is better than the last.

However, they’ve got a shoe dropping in March that seems to have a lot of sneakerheads torn. It’s the CS2S, released in collaboration with Naked and adidas. If you were wondering, CS2 is short for “City Sock 2”. These will be the first release of the second version of the City Sock.

The first City Sock was a shoe that a lot of sneakerheads had divided opinions on, so it doesn’t really come as a great surprise that many folks aren’t really too sure about these either. Believe us, we understand. The sock-like upper is weird enough by itself, but you toss the white stripe down the middle and it gets ramped up to a whole another level. The colorways don’t really help either.

We’ll be honest … we’re huge Kith fans and we’re still pretty iffy on these. They might be just a little bit too busy for us, but Ronnie Fieg never fails. As these get closer to their March 4th release, and we learn more about the packaging and details (and maybe even get a chance to check them out in person after they drop), we just might change our minds. After all, you’ve gotta give Ronnie the benefit of the doubt at this point, right?
