Reebok Club C 85 Mule History

Reebok has been undergoing a sort of renaissance with several sneakers under its classic Club C catalog getting street-appropriate touch-ups. This clearly tells that Reebok’s old-school stars continue to have an audience in spite of the compelling trend over space-age sneakers nowadays. One that arrived with a modified appearance is the low-top Club C 85 in mule version. This silhouette notably named the Reebok Club C 85 Mule mirrors the same vintage charm of the ageless court model with a stylish, backless twist.

The Reebok Club C 85 appeared in 1985 as a rebranded version of the Reebok Revenge Plus. The change in its title turned out to be more appropriate for the tennis scene at that time, which was regulated by club dress codes that commanded a degree of austerity. The Club C 85 visibly represents the ‘80s type of fashion with its upper made of premium and resilient leather, while the inside takes up the much talked about Reebok element, the supple terry towel lining. Like the Reebok Freestyle which came a bit earlier, this athletic shoe somehow crisscrossed into the fashion scene as it appealed to the aerobics-loving crowd from the ‘80s who were also keen in styling up their sneakers.

With the advent of retro versions of the Club C 85 done in simple, timeless detailing, it is no doubt that the old school shoe blueprint is very much equipped for a brand new generation of sneaker die-hards.

After its brief hiatus from the limelight, the Club C 85 was seen gaining a strong foothold in the streetwear fashion through mainline drops and partnership with known lifestyle retailers and hitmakers. These trendsetters and suppliers include American fashion model Gigi Hadid, famous Compton hometown rapper Kendrick Lamar, Boston’s famous retail outlet Concepts, Copenhagen sneaker store Naked, and London-based skate supplier Palace Skateboards.
