History of the Reebok Club C 85 Leather

The Club C 85 had a British flag branding on the tongue of the shoe, paying homage to the brand’s roots before it became a fully American company. It had a terry towel lining and an upper made of soft leather. The footwear was an instant hit with tennis aficionados. Its popularity also crossed over to the fitness market, specifically the aerobics crowd, that flourished during those days.
