Reebok Club C 85 ESTL History

With a silhouette bound without time, the Reebok Club C 85 ESTL has a versatile design which is ideal for street style and sporty outfits. It has a mixture of leather and suede uppers with perforations that sit atop a vulcanized and durable outsole, allowing foot breathability and stability.

It is available in colorways including Powder Grey/White/Washed Blue Gum, Coal/White/Washed Blue Gum, Urban Maroon/White/Washed Blue Gum and Washed Blue/White Gum.

The Reebok Club C, a re-titled version of the Reebok Revenge Plus, debuted in 1985. It was originally crafted with leather uppers with a cozy terry towel liner. It carried the Reebok’s signature label window alongside the British flag. In the ‘80s, this sneaker was favored among fans of aerobics like Jane Fonda who used it in her workout VHS Series.

The Reebok Club C’s timeless silhouette was pulled off from the shelves for a short time but later remerged in recent years. It was appreciated enough to warrant a return. With strong releases, the Club C silhouette was utilized in collaborations with the likes of the Copenhagen sneaker boutique Naked, London-based Palace Skateboards, and Boston retail mainstay Concepts. Also among the celebrities who fronted the sneaker are Kendrick Lamar, Curren$y and Gigi Hadid.
