We teamed up Reebok for our first footwear collaboration. For the joint endeavor, we updated Reebok’s Club C 85 and Beatnik silhouettes with a beach utility-inspired aesthetic.

By centering two signature shoes from the Boston-based sportswear brand, the collaboration centers on staple, yet functional designs while also elevating them with beach utility notes – a core brand aspect of Western Hydrodynamic Research. For the collaboration, the shoes have been updated with recycled fabrics and suede for enhanced durability alongside environmental connection. Complimenting the shoe’s suede accents are gum outsoles, an embroidered WHR logo on the Beatnik strap and a WHR patch on the Club C 85 footbed.body
