Reebok x Artists for Humanity Club C History

Reebok has joined forces with Artists For Humanity in designing sneakers that present creativity of the youngsters. Artists For Humanity is a Boston-based program that helps the youth with lesser sources and means. The collaboration between Reebok and Artists For Humanity has a goal of breaking down barriers by providing four young-adults a creative work in which they will get paid and through a mentorship program. These youths will be given a chance to design a limited edition sneaker.

Two of these gifted youngsters are Jonathan “Pineapple” Tejeda and Kathleen “Kat” Canola. The pair chose the Reebok Club C sneaker to work on. The Club C silhouette was first released in 1985 and is one of Reebok’s retro models.

Tejeda and Canola both took inspiration on designing the shoe from William The Conqueror’s Coat of Arms. Their design shows the red from the shield; blue from the claws; and yellow from the two lions. The design also includes the Tudor Rose motif. The year ‘1066’ can be seen as a stamp on the heel of the shoe representing the Battle of Hastings, marking the start of the Norman Conquest of England.
