The History Of The Reebok Club C

The Reebok Club C has been a sneaker of note for decades now. It is a casual shoe favorite that fits with a variety of looks and occasions. Learn about the History of The Club C below.

Club C

Despite debuting in 1985, nearly 40 years ago, the Reebok Club C is still a shoe people love. It appeals to both men and women with its classic style of simplicity. It is a casual shoe with no limits. Originally the Club C was crafted with leather uppers and a terry towel liner. Identifiable by its signature label window, displaying Reebok branding alongside a British flag. The Club C has been pulled off shelves from time to time. But it always seems to return, and appeal to a new generation of admirers. In recent years, the Club C has been used in high profile collaborations, including one with Shoe Palace.

A Brief Look At The History Of Reebok

The longevity and relevance of Reebok is something that is impossible not to respect and value. Some of the most memorable sneakers of all time have come from Reebok. Reebok was founded in England, in 1981. The founders, a pair of brothers, Joe, and Jeff Foster, came from a long family tradition of making athletic footwear. Reebok from the start made sneakers for a wide variety of sports and activities. Those activities included training, running, weightlifting and more. The 1980s and 1990s were when Reebok truly rose to prominence. The shoes they produced in those years are some of the most iconic styles of all time. Shoes of note include the Club C 85 and the Pump Omni.

Shoe Palace Celebrates 30 Years Of Business With Reebok

The traditional 30 Anniversary gift is the Pearl. When Shoe Palace and Reebok linked up to decide what to do for Shoe Palace’s milestone, the Pearl seemed like the ideal inspiration. There is a beauty and simplicity to the Gem, and Shoe Palace & Reebok brought those elements to the Club C “Pearl.”

The Club C is one of the hottest sneakers in the industry. It is a timeless classic that served as the ideal canvas for this silhouette. The Club C has been a strong part of Reebok’s business and foundation. It has also been a mainstay on Shoe Palace shelves.

Shoe Palace’s focus on community and family is called out with embroidery of “Family” and “First” on the cracked leather heel tabs. The upper is done in the classic Club C color of vintage chalk white in a soft leather. The toe cap features a hairy suede, and a tint of yellow shows through from the edges. The lateral window is left blank for the simplicity of a Pearl while the heel sports an embroidered vector logo. The tongue label has a custom graphic calling out the Pearl motif and special collaboration with Shoe Palace. Lastly, the project comes with custom insoles and a box with iridescent touches to celebrate the momentous birthday of Shoe Palace.
