PATTA X REEBOK CLUB C 85
Patta has worked with Reebok on a custom Club C 85. Made exclusively for Patta, this classic 80s court silhouette features a full-grain leather upper, with a perforated toe panel and foam tongue for comfort and breathability. The traditional Reebok woven label with the Union Jack was replaced by Patta branding and the Pan-African flag. The Red, Black & Green flag was conceived by Marcus Garvey exactly 100 years ago and stands for Pan- African unity. Part of the proceeds from this shoe will always be donated to The Black Archives from Amsterdam, London’s Sistah Space & The Good Neighborhood Collective in Milan, all local organisations for communities of the African Diaspora, so we can structurally support them in their work.
The Patta x Reebok Club C 85 is an in-store exclusive and will be available from Patta Amsterdam, Milan and London starting December 5th at 12:00 CET.
More about the organisations that will be supported with this project:
Amsterdam: The Black Archives, a unique historical archive for inspiring conversations, activities and literature from Black and other perspectives that are often overlooked elsewhere. The Black Archives documents the history of black emancipation movements and individuals in The Netherlands. Visit The Black Archives at www.theblackarchives.nl
London: Sistah Space, a charity run by a team of volunteers that works with African heritage women & girls who have experienced domestic or sexual abuse or who have lost a loved one to domestic violence. Sistah Space provides advice and support as well as practical help to those who are apprehensive about going to mainstream services without support, such as the police and other statutory services. Sistah Space’ mission is to encourage African heritage survivors/victims to report abuse by providing a safe cultural venue for victims to disclose abuse in a confidential environment, and to encourage community integration.

Milan: The Good Neighborhood Collective, a Milan-based collective that gives a voice to emerging Italian second-generation creatives, stimulating collaborations, suggesting connections and offering support in many different ways.
