Founded in 2005, END. has provided a collaborative hand to a number of footwear options from the largest names in the industry. Following a dip into the slip-on obsession via the Reebok Beatnik’s “Reported Sightings” capsule, the European retailer is following up on the latter by celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with a crisp, heavy-bodied stout.
Inspired by the distinctively dark hues of the top-fermented ale, END. has transformed the iconic Reebok Club C to mimic the 17th-century tipple with jet-black suede uppers contrasted at its chocolate brown heel and tongue tab which harken the spirits’ rich, coffee-like taste. Topped off at the brim with a creamy foam head, color-matched neutrals dress the soft terry lining of the collar and laces while four-leaf clovers are worked into the tongue and sidewall branding. In keeping with the St. Paddy’s Day celebration, “Drink Responsibly” is inscribed along the insoles while detailed compliments come in the form of the stout-inspired palette stretching to the matte box and branded beer towel.
Releasing on March 10th, enjoy a look at the END. x Reebok Club C “Stout” below in the meantime while we await further release details.
