The Reebok Club C has been an iconic silhouette in the big universe of trainers since its release back in 1985. The Club C with its clean, no-nonsense simplicity and its slightly off-white tone and its mint ability to work with almost any outfit makes it a firm Proper favourite. The Club C is not just any trainer.
But now Packer Shoes, the American sneaker men, have given the Club C a makeover to bring us a revamped silhouette entitled “Marcial”. Known as a trainer that “anyone can wear and look good doing it”, the white is brushed into a cream leather with a clean, white midsole, paired with the iconic bold green accents throughout.
It’s always risky to play about with classic OGs – adidas and their bad Stan Smith Primeknit rework springs to mind, for example – especially so when you’re messing with a trainer that’s still very much hyped about, but for this Packer and Reebok deserve a big pat on the back. And a nice, big, juicy thumbs up.
