The Melted Metals iteration of the Club C 85 features a low-top silhouette, which guarantees lots of mobility for the ankles. Despite being made in leather, the shoe offers plenty of ventilation through the perforation details on the toe boxes. 

A lace-up closure system made up of a set of seven eyelets and traditional flat laces offer a customized fit. According to a user, the colorways differ in height, with the silver color scheme somewhat taller than the gold one. 

The Reebok Club C 85 Melted Metals’ sparkly finish is certain to jazz up any outfit. Pair it with your favorite black leggings, a tight sleeveless top, and a long cardigan for a smart yet casual look. You can also match the sneakers with jeans, dresses, skirts, joggers, and shorts.

Classic meets street in the Reebok Club C 85 Melted Metals. The shoe’s fashionable lustrous update is its most noteworthy feature because it gives any outfit a “pop.” Although very much on-trend, the shoe does not lag when it comes to comfort. The sneaker boasts of good cushioning as well as support.

The original Club C 85 (the C here stands for Champion) was a tennis shoe that was a more minimalist version of Reebok’s Revenge Plus. It had a full-grain leather upper and a comfortable interior that made it a favorite among tennis enthusiasts. The shoe also captured the attention of exercise fanatics in the 80s.

The Club C 85 was so popular that Reebok kept introducing new Club C 85 iterations such as the Club C 85 Vintage, Club C 85 Pastels, Club C 85 Diamond, and so on. In 2017, a new version based on the classic came out again—the Reebok Club C 85 Melted Metals. This time the shoe’s leather upper was dressed in rich colors with a metallic and pearl luster finish.  A simple lace-up front and a low-top design finished off the clean and sleek street-ready look.

  • The Reebok Club C 85 Melted Metals is available in five striking colorways: pearl white, pearl black, pearl met, grey gold, and pearl navy.
  • It features Reebok’s iconic British logo.
  • The shoe has an EVA midsole.
  • The Club C 85 Melted Metals campaign is headed by model Gigi Hadid.
