The Ultimate Reebok Club C 85 FAQ

The Reebok Club C 85 is currently one of the most popular silhouettes from Reebok. The sneaker made its debut in 1985 and has been a classic on the sneaker market ever since. Today, we clarify all the things you should know about the Kick. Welcome to the ultimate Reebok Club C 85 FAQ!

The History of the Reebok Club C 85

As already revealed at the beginning, Reebok's history starts in 1985 with the founding of the family business 'J.W. Foster and Sons' in Bolton (GB). At the end of the 80s, the brand came up with the Reebok Club C 85 and celebrated a great success.

In 1993, the brand marked another milestone in the history of the silhouette: After the Club C also appeared in women's sizes for the first time in the middle of the year, Reebok introduced the Club C to their Classics category. This paved the way for the sneaker from the court to the streets, catwalks and skate parks.

The Reebok Club C disappeared from the scene in the early 2000s, but celebrated a comeback in 2015. In the meantime, the silhouette has almost achieved cult status and is an integral part of the sneaker community.
