Western Hydrodynamic Research Rework the Reebok Beatnik and Club C 85

The first of maybe many more collaborations.


Reebok and Western Hydrodynamic Research (WHR) ready their first collaboration, bringing a beach-ready, eco-conscious element to two Reebok classics: the Club C 85 and the laid-back Beatnik slide, infusing them with WHR’s signature “beach utility” style.

Both pairs feature recycled fabrics and suede with the Club C 85 boasting a gum outsole, while the Beatnik slide sports an embroidered WHR logo on the strap and a brand patch on the footbed.

“We are honored to be on Reebok’s roster of collaborators,” expressed WHR Founder, Pat Towersey. “We have been so excited to put our spin on the Club C 85, an iconic shoe that has been part of popular culture since the ‘80s, and of course the Beatnik, which is the perfect slide.”

The WHR x Reebok Club C 85 is priced at US$130; the Beatnik, US$120. Both will be released on WHR’s website on 9 February with a wider release at Reebok on the 16th. However, the Beatnik will remain a WHR exclusive.
