Reebok and Eames Office Are Releasing a Special Sneaker Collection

The sportswear brand has partnered with the legendary designers’ estate to unveil a range of sneakers inspired by the creative legacy of Charles and Ray Eames.

After teasing the internet with an Eames House–inspired sneaker made exclusively for "friends and family" last month, Reebok and Eames Office have officially announced a landmark collaboration honoring the life and creative legacy of Charles and Ray Eames. The inaugural drop of the Reebok x Eames Office Club C shoe collection will be available this October 15, with a wider global release on October 21. 

The Reebok x Eames Club C Monotone Pack features one all-white and one all-black version of Reebok’s popular Club C shoe. 

Known for their groundbreaking furniture creations for Herman Miller and Vitra, Charles and Ray Eames redefined postwar American design with their playful, yet purposeful sensibility. The celebrated 20th-century designers were driven by the belief that everyday objects should go beyond utilitarian function to enrich people’s lives on a personal level. Today, Eames Office—which was established by the husband-and-wife duo in the mid-20th century—is run by the third generation of the Eames family.

The Reebok x Eames Office Club C Monotone Pack shoes feature "Eames" text where the Reebok logo usually appears.

For the collection, which initially contains four designs, the two brands reimagined Reebok’s popular Club C shoe, originally released in 1985. The first drop—the Reebok x Eames Office Club C Monotone Pack—features one all-white and one all-black version of the tennis shoe with "Eames" text where the Reebok logo usually appears. The insole also features a geometric print that references the colors seen on the famous Eames House.

A second collection from the collaboration—the Ray Eames Signature Pack—will drop later this season. The collection is devoted to the artistic triumphs of Ray Eames and will feature a reproduction of her painting Composition (1939), as well as the iconic Eames dot pattern textile print from 1947.

The packaging for the Reebok x Eames Office Club C collection is modeled after the Eames House, also known as Case Study House No. 8, in Los Angeles. Husband-and-wife duo Charles and Ray Eames constructed the residence in to serve as their home and studio.

The first drop from the Reebok x Eames Office Club C collaboration will be available on eamesoffice.com on October 15, and on reebok.com on October 21.
