Move to Miami to Cop Exclusive BAPE x Reebok Club C ColabRelease: 19 December 2020
The BAPE x Reebok Club C may have leaked last week, but the collaborative parties are making sure copping a pair is airtight. They’re achieving this by making a measly 200 pairs available only from BAPE’s Miami outpost. Nope, there is no word of an online release.
Take an official look at these collaborative Club Cs in the above shots. The Club C celebrates its 35th anniversary this year; coincidentally, it’s also the BAPE STA’s 20th. Two streetwear staples meet on Reebok’s tennis-shoe-turned-jack-of-all-trades sneaker, with BAPE’s distinct STA logo stitched across lateral and medial sides of the Club C. Each STA is covered in a different iteration of BAPE camo, using green, purple, red and blue shades. The insoles are covered in yellow ‘1st Camo’ print, and co-branded elements complete the colab. This includes the BAPE ape head logo on the tongue and a BAPE spellout on the heel tab, which cleverly slides in a Reebok Vector logo with a STA ‘tail’. Everything else, by the way, is finished in crisp white leather and rubber.
Aforementioned is this colab’s scarcity and geographical restriction. 200 pairs release at BAPE Miami on December 19, alongside a matching t-shirt, plus a complimentary tote bag upon purchase of the Club Cs.
For the rest of the world, BAPE and Reebok have confirmed the existence of a second, yet-to-be-revealed colourway. Stay tuned for that.
