Released in 1985 and carrying a name that stands for Champion, the Reebok Club C 85, couldn’t have a more appropriate and more apparent name.

The Reebok Club C is a somewhat rebranded version of the Revenge Plus. This sneaker’s style is more muted and simpler since it is metamorphosed into a more tennis-appropriate design.

The Reebok Club C 85 took a hiatus much like most iconic tennis sneakers. Its return made this classic more popular than ever.
