Reebok Club C 85 Vintage History

Initially dropped in 1985, the Reebok Club C was basically a more or less re-titled version of the Reebok Revenge Plus. The C stands for Champion. It is a tennis shoe designed to comply with the tennis courts’ dress codes – minimal design and mostly white in color.

Back then, Reebok was popular in the tennis sneaker scene. The Reebok Club C was one of those Reebok models most favored amongst sneaker fanatics and tennis enthusiasts, both fashion- and performance-wise, as it features a leather material on the upper lined with a comfy terry towel liner and a rubber outsole. It also suited the aerobics craze during the ‘80s.

It was also during that era that Reebok exceeded the company giant Nike in terms of sales and size, and the sales and popularity of this Reebok classic partly contributed to such success. After gaining triumph in tennis and aerobics, Reebok, under the management of American Paul Fireman, then expanded into basketball footwear.

Like the other classics, the Reebok Club C was also pulled off the shelves for a short period of time. But, fast forward to February 2016, for the silhouette’s 30th anniversary, Reebok brought back the vintage look through the Reebok Club C 85 Vintage. It was released in two colorways, the Green and Collegiate Blue, and features a clean, subtle look in an overall chalk-colored upper. It also received an upgrade through an injection molded EVA midsole for improved support and cushioning and a high abrasion rubber outsole.
