HIstory of Reebok Club C 85 NBK

As the name implies, the Reebok Club C 85 was introduced in 1985 as originally a tennis footwear. The C on its name means “Champion.” Its design is inspired by the Reebok Revenge Plus but with fewer details, making it more minimal and a bit less flashy. With its minimalistic design, tennis players were allowed to use this in the tennis courts.

One noticeable detail on the branding is the British emblem after it, which was considered odd by the consumers, as the sneaker was first released in the US by Reebok’s American distributor Paul Fireman. Although, some concluded that it might be a homage to the brand's British origins.
