Following on from a just-revealed New Order-honoring collaboration and a team-up with Bodega comes PLEASURES‘ next project — two pairs of collaborative sneakers with Reebok, taking on the Club C 85 and Club C Legacy.
First up is the Club C 85, which is served in a “Black/Pine Green” colorway comprised of a Cordura base and suede overlays. The shoe is relatively simple but relies on its unique fabric construction to give the shoe an edge, and that’s exactly the energy that is portrayed here. The Cordura base makes for a weatherproof upper that should be good to take on all kinds of outdoorsy elements, which the suede livening things up by wrapping around the toe bumper, eyestay placket, heel, and on the mid-panel.
Here, PLEASURES’ branding breaks through the suede in a ripped, love heart-shaped design, while classic Reebok branding appears on the tongue to round out the pair.
As for the Club C Legacy, PLEASURES opts for a more subtle “Pure Grey 2/Pure Grey 4/Straw” colorway that’s not made from Coruda but instead mesh and suede, and is more focused on PLEASURES branding. Its name stamps the rear-quarter while Reebok’s insignia graces the heel tabs and mid-panel plate, while more of PLEASURES can be found on the tongue tab and finally the clear “Straw” sole unit.
Both pairs from the PLEASURES x Reebok collaboration can be seen above and purchased from retailers such as Asphalt Gold on July 31.
