Can you guess what the C stands for in Reebok Club C 85? Originally released in the '80s, the C stands for 'Champion'. The classic looking sneaker designed for both men and women is now marketed as a lifestyle shoe. Recently reintroduced, the C 85 comes in a slew of special edition colorways.
Almost identical to the '80s version of the shoe, the Reebok shoe incorporates fresh hues for an appealing, updated look. The classic sneaker is also well-loved by multiple celebrities. It's not hard to see why. The simple design is appealing and easy to match with a variety of outfits. The shoe's comfortable feel combined with its retro look makes it a popular choice. Although it comes in many colorways, act quickly to make sure you find the style option that best matches your personality.
Reviewers found the EVA foam comfortable. The midsole delivers cushioning that's good enough for everyday wear. You shouldn't expect to run a marathon in the Reebok Club C 85 but rest assured you'll be comfortable.
Reviewers liked the low-cut design of the sneaker and appreciated the plush and luxurious padding concentrated around the tongue and ankle collar. Inside the sneaker, there's a molded sock liner for a bit of extra cushioning.
Reebok Club shoe was quite lightweight, although we couldn't track down a specific weight listing for either the men's or women's model.
Compared to a lightweight running shoe, we'd expect the shoe to be a bit heavier. For everyday wear, this should suit most users.
The shoe even includes Reebok's throwback union jack logo. The Reebok 85 is available in all-black, various white versions and a black option with a white sole for men. For women, we could only track down a light pink version and some users were disappointed that the women's shoe came in such limited styles.
The simple design is universally appealing. The colorways offered are classy and grown-up and pair well with casual work wear or everyday clothes you might wear to go out with friends.
