Prince and Reebok Serve the Ultimate Club C Tennis CrossoverRelease: 10 September 2021
Tennis equipment and apparel company Prince have tapped into the casual courtside space for their new collaboration with Reebok, reworking four player- and spectator-friendly takes on the Club C. This is the perfect symbiosis between two entities deeply rooted in the popular and sartorially influential sport.
Consisting of the Club C 85 and Club C Revenge (two slight variations on the same foundational model), Prince have chosen bright pastel accents like yellow, mint green, and pink onto the leather uppers and outsoles. In addition, the white colourways have breezy mesh inserted into the toe box. Prince also slide their typographical logo – replacing the Reebok text – into the lateral grosgrain window, and underneath the ice outsoles, which have each been shaded to match the secondary accent.
‘Prince and Reebok have a great synergy, they are both modern sportswear and lifestyle brands, with an authentic link to the old school throwback days of tennis,’ said Prince creative director David Grutman on the collaboration.
The Prince x Reebok collaboration will release on September 10 at Reebok and selected retailers. Sizing will be unisex, running from 3.5 through to 13. There will also be apparel consisting of tees, shirts, jackets and polos releasing alongside the sneakers.
