Reebok Club C 85 Lace History

During the 1980s, tennis was a big-shot sport. The supreme court play was not the only thing that audiences look forward to but also the kicks that each athlete bear. Though minimalist in concept, tennis sneakers took a shift from the court terrain into the streets when superstars start to wander off-court while still wearing their game shoes. The public gradually noticed its low profile style which superbly coincides with articles of clothing. Soon after, global brands started to produce tennis-inspired lifestyle footwear.

Reebok was one of the major sports apparel companies that gave in to the trend. They first released the Newport Classic, a tennis shoe that has a streamlined design in a white upper that complies with strict tennis dress codes. The NPC became a mold for more tennis-influenced Reebok sneakers to come.

The Reebok Club Champion succeeded the NPC with flying colors. It was initially dubbed as the Revenge Plus, but after years of revamping the model gave birth to the Club C. Due to its sleek form, it became subject to multiple variations that would continue to the present time.

The Reebok Club C yet again was remodeled in 2017 into a female-oriented form named the Reebok Club C 85 Lace.
