Sportswear designer and basketball short connoisseur Eric Emanuel has teamed up with Reebok for a colorful collection of Club Cs. Inspired by Emanuel’s love of back-to-school shopping as a youth, the four-shoe capsule adds pops of vibrant color and punches of tasteful branding to showcase Emanuel’s signature sport-inspired flair.
Arriving in an Los Angeles Lakers-esque “Regal Purple/Retro Yellow,” an “Cherry Tomato/Smoky Taupe,” an “Energy Orange/Collegiate Navy,” and an EE-exclusive “Ultramarine/Black,” all four Club Cs retain a timeless crisp white leather base, then add embellishment on the heel, insole and outsole. Emanuel’s signature EE logo is debossed on each heel, with insoles taking on a crest-like graphic and outsoles supplying further contrast.
When asked about the shoes, Emanuel quipped “The Club C is the first shoe I have done that I can honestly say is an everyday shoe, and that makes me so happy. I am a creature of habit and tend to wear the same shoes for months at a time; I get hooked on the silhouette until something new catches my eye. I am saving tons of each color for myself as I want to wear these FOREVER.”
The Eric Emanuel x Reebok Club C collection releases on the Eric Emanuel webstore August 14, then arrives via Reebok’s online shop August 21 — save for the aformentioned exclusive “Ultramarine/Black” colorway. The MSRP for each pair is set at $110 USD.
