Designer Danielle Guizio and Reebok announced their first collaborative shoe together: the Club C 85 sneaker.
Recognized as the creator behind the immensely popular Tie-Dye Safety Pin Sweater, Danielle Guizio is a New York-based designer known for pushing the boundaries of womenswear while elevating the concept of femininity in design. Guizio’s designs ultimately serve as a moodboard for the the modern-day woman, having graced many celebrity fashionistas including Aleali May, Kendal Jenner, Hailey Bieber and Bella Hadid to name a few.
With Reebok’s roots as the originator of the first athletic shoe for women and Danielle Guizio’s womenswear background, this match was truly made in heaven. Together, the two will tackle the Reebok Club C 85 which is influenced by women empowerment.
Danielle Guizio expresses her excitement about the upcoming collaboration, “I’m honored and humbled to be able to design my very first sneaker with Reebok. Since I first learned how to tie my shoes, footwear has always played a big role in my life. The fact that I get to tell a story of positivity and strength through the shoe is all I could have ever dreamed of.”
For her first sneaker collaboration, Danielle Guizio re-imagines the Reebok Club C 85 tackling the sneaker’s classic silhouette with modern design elements. The sneaker appears in a chalk, paper white, and siege green color colorway complete with a mixture of fabric choices such as suede and leather. Guizio’s logo replaces the tag on the upper which usually sports the Reebok logo. Other noteworthy details include the accompanying bouclé laces for added texture and padded tongue which features an inspirational quote by Guizio.
On the direction behind the joint sneaker, she states: “The overall theme of the design is meant to uplift and inspire you to get up and achieve your goals with determination. We are lucky to start each and every day by putting our shoes on. Planting your feet into the shoe and then your day begins; the world is yours. If you can believe it, you can achieve it.”
The Danielle Guizio x Reebok Club C 85 lands on Guizio’s webstore on Thursday, June 10th for $120. The sneaker will arrive on Reebok.com and select retailers on Saturday, June 12th.
