Good to know

The Club C RC 1 is available in both men's and women's sizes. The lace-up system allows the wearer to get a customizable and comfortable fit.

As it uses synthetic leather for the upper, this low-top sneaker has a good hold of the foot keeping it in place. Its textile lining and EVA midsole feature great cushioning and comfort, making it ideal for people on the go.   

Inspired by the '80s tennis style, the Classic CC RC 1 features popping details that give it an edge. Its overall design is quite versatile and is great to sport out for leisure or casual use.

Although men can easily don these shoes with a shirt and shorts, it is still possible to pair this together with a long-sleeved shirt tucked in a pair of chinos. People who are flaunting a smart casual getup would usually go for this matchup as the sporty construction gives it a more stylish touch.

For women, matching any colorways with some jeans and a shirt or sweater of the same accent may be the easiest way out. Yet there are still those who are daring for a more sophisticated look. With the chalk white or the grey colorway, some would complete the look with a white or light blue skirt.

The style and overall comfort of the Club Champion RC 1 are what makes this shoe stand out among the rest. By using a leather upper with textile lining on the inside, the foot is well protected and well-cushioned at the same time. Its EVA midsole also contributes to the cushioning of the shoe. For style, the sneaker displays big Vector logos and popping colored details giving it an '80s vibe. 

Reebok is known as one of the top brands in the footwear industry. Around the 1980s, the company experienced one of its glory days, overtaking other leading brands such as Nike and Adidas. It was around this decade where people got into aerobics and slowly paid attention to sports such as tennis. Coming with silhouettes that cater to these categories allowed Reebok to thrive and gain more recognition from the market. 

Even as the trend died down, its following went on, opting Reebok to open up the Reebok Classics. Within this brand, it got to re-release the classic favorites. It also revamped silhouettes based on popular models such as the Freestyle, the Classic Leather, and even the Instapump Fury.

For the SS16, Reebok released a new Court collection bringing back to life some of the classics. The Club C, also known as the Club Champion, released its first shoe back in 1985. With the timeless design of this tennis shoe, models such as the Club C RC 1 took inspiration from it and added a fashionable touch.  

  • It has a non-marking rubber outsole for durability.
