The Reebok Club C 85 SYN is available in women's sizes ranging from 5 to 11. Half-sizes are also available. The fit is perfect for those with an average foot measurement.

The Reebok Club C 85 SYN stays true to its roots by retaining its low cut silhouette but updated its look with boldness. This sneaker gives a futuristic vibe with its silvery, soft synthetic upper and contrasted with a rubber outsole. Any basic outfit can have a new spin with this sneaker's silvery look.

This sneaker proves that even opposites mesh well together. Its futuristic silver upper instantly attracts attention and puts a trendy spin on the classic profiled sneaker. The metallic logo and the silver-speckled tops the overall look together.

The outsole is made out of a high abrasion rubber which not only gives an old school style but adds traction and makes the sneaker more durable as well. 

The Reebok Club C 89 SYN puts a spin on the classic Reebok Club Champion profile. The Reebok Club C embodies everything that is tennis. Starting from its name, having the term "club" which exudes exclusivity and a letter that stands for Champion, it shows that this sneaker qualifies to the sports' certain dress code. Launched in 1985, during the height of tennis, this sneaker gained much attention because of its classic yet sophisticated vibe. Originally crafted with leather uppers and lined with a terry towel, the Club C 85 did not just hit the tennis community but the aerobic club as well.

Despite being acquired by an American investor, Paul Fireman, the minimalistic design of the Club C's sport a British flag alongside the Reebok flag. Throughout the years, the sneaker became an underdog, compared to the highly endorsed rival, Stan Smith or John McEnroe. Currently, being under the Adidas umbrella, the Reebok Club C gains its popularity, not only for tennis and aerobic fanatics but sneaker fans as well. 

  • The synthetic silver upper provides support and visibility.
  • Reebok maintains the low-cut style for a classic and streamlined silhouette.
  • The sock liner is composed of a padded foam for additional cushion.
