UPDATE: Many thought it was game, set, match for this colab after it dropped at Solebox last week, but it turns out this Club C is still in play. The shoe is seeing a wider release on November 18 from Reebok accounts like Titolo.
It's been a long time between sets, but Solebox have finally returned to the court with a new Reebok collaboration. This time the European retailer has given the Pump a rest and served up a unique take on the Classic Club C 85 tennis shoe. Keeping with the shoe's court shoe origins, Solebox's creation features a ribbed upper of overlapping leather that replicates tennis racquet grip. An all-over turquoise hue channels the 80s vibes, while a splash of red on the tongue tag and midsole stitching adds some unexpected contrast. Stone grey engulfs the collar and rear details for a touch of restraint, while Solebox branding in the signature Reebok font at the heel adds a colab touch. The shoes will release alongside a matching Solebox x New Era strap back, exclusive to Solebox.
The Solebox x Reebok Classic Club C 85 'Year of the Court' will drop November 11 through Solebox's brick and mortar locations in Berlin, Munich and Vienna, and online through solebox.com. The pairs purchased through the website will come packaged in a special box. A wider global release will follow through select Reebok accounts on November 18, so check with your local store to find out if they will be getting stock.
