Reebok Club C 85 Diamond History

The Club C 85 (the C here standing for Champion) was initially released in 1985 as a cutting-edge tennis shoe. The shoe’s silhouette is the same as that of Reebok’s Revenge Plus but was tweaked a bit to fit in with more conventional tennis standards that demanded a more minimalist and streamlined look.

The original Club C 85 had a terry towel liner for cooling effect, durable leather upper, and a British flag alongside the Reebok branding. It became hugely popular not only with tennis aficionados but with the aerobics market that flourished during that time as well. The athletic shoe simply had that certain style that appealed to the fashion scene.

After that highly successful run, the shoe came out in various other colorways and iterations. One of these is the Club C 85 Diamond. The new rendition retained much of the classic look but updated it with a modern touch by adding a hint of feminine sparkle at the shoe’s heel.
