It’s not too difficult to spot select design cues in collaborative footwear and recognize the label that put their spin on said silhouette as many utilize similar themes across their various projects. Looking to Packer Shoes, the New Jersey-based sneaker retailer, its work in the footwear design realm sees silhouettes like the Reebok Club C get elevated into a realm of “high fashion” with its use of premium materials and simple color palettes. Once again tackling the model, Packer brings a regal shade of maroon to the silhouette.
Covered entirely in premium leather (both tumbled and smooth), the silhouette features slight tweaks to branding details and a touch of maroon around the sockliner. White shades take over the rest of the upper, including the mudguard, midfoot panel, and eyestays while the tongue receives an eggshell, almost sail makeover. Running atop this is a set of stark white laces, accenting the Reebok-branded tongue tag above with its hint of maroon in the “Classic” text. A similar maroon hit is found along the midfoot branding window with “Reebok” text replaced with just the letter “R,” embroidered in both maroon and white that allows the letter to appear as a “P” for Packer or “R” for Reebok. Just nearby you’ll find the terrycloth-esque sockliner that comes in a deep maroon hue while the white insole below features co-branding between Packer and Reebok. Rounding out the design is the cream-colored midsole and outsole combo.
The Packer x Reebok Club C White Burgundy is set to release on December 2nd, 2022, exclusive to Packer Shoes online at 11am EST and in-store. Coming in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $120.
