Following the release of a Club C “Monotone Pack” in October of last year, Eames Office and Reebok are back for the duo’s second and final iteration of Reebok’s classic Club C silhouette. The upcoming “Dot Pattern & Composition Pack” dresses two Reebok Club C’s in one of the Eames couple’s most beloved textile prints and one of Ray Eames‘ most iconic paintings.
The Club C “Composition” is based on Ray’s Composition painting created in 1939, while under the tutelage of the influential German painter Hans Hoffman. The natural tones are spread across the canvas uppers with Ray Eames trademarked signature embroidered on the laterals and a silver Eames office logo displayed on the tongue tag. Below, a crisp white rubber midsole completes the pairs.
The Club C “Dot Pattern” features Eames Office’s Dot Pattern textile print featuring a field of dots joined by tiny sinews, expressing the interconnectedness of Eames design. The design is featured on the two-tone uppers with an Eames cut-out box logo displayed on the laterals and a yellowed sole unit below. The Reebok logo on the heel tab is noticeably absent for a more simplistic design. The shoeboxes are modeled after the Eames House, Case Study House No. 8, located in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood in Los Angeles.
Beyond what initially meets the eye, “Heritage accents such as original size tongue tags, squared-off window boxes, die-cut tooling and original Eames and Reebok logos celebrate the Club C tradition and honor Charles and Ray’s belief that details make the design. Reebok has also restored the Club C’s original internal arch bandage to further enhance fit and comfort,” Reebok writes in a press release.
The Reebok x Eames Club C “Dot Pattern & Composition Pack” will be available March 17 at 10 a.m. ET at the Eames Office website and on March 18 at 10 a.m. ET from Reebok’s website and select retailers. Both pairs are priced at $120 USD.
