Arriving in 2002, solebox has cohabitated with an expansive number of brands within the sneaker ecosystem. Fresh off of their latest joint effort from October featuring a “Neapolitan” makeover of the adidas Rivalry Low, the Berlin-based boutique has since announced a minimalist take on Reebok’s iconic heritage-infused Club C 85.
Drawing inspiration from the British sportswear brand’s extensive archives, the sleek low-top is complemented by an understated palette that combines the influence of legendary tennis silhouettes from the 1980s. Embracing the model’s timeless design ethos, the collaborative installment explores a classic near-clad white soft leather upper that stretches from the vamp to heel. In a subtle contrast, pastel green accents land on the embossed heel tab, outsole and trim of the brand-less tongue tabs. Accompanied by an aged yellowed midsole and nylon tongue, the latter pairs with a terry cloth lining to effectively harken the aesthetics of decades past.
