The Reebok Club C 85 sprung from the era when the tennis tourneys were much anticipated. Introduced in 1985, the Reebok Club C 85 had a simple design and was built with a white leather upper and cream-colored sole.

At that time, tennis dress codes commanded a level of minimalism, and these silhouettes were built under such a framework. The topnotch comfort and styles of these tennis shoes emanating from its towel-like Terry cloth liner and pristine aesthetics turned these into bestsellers among casual athletes.
