For over a decade and a half, All Gone has documented many important and sought-after articles from our generation. The publication has earned a reputation as the definitive and iconic historian of modern subculture.
Through its annual series of coffee table books, the label has recorded many rare occurrences and highly desirable artifacts from the street culture sphere. Ranging from NFT projects through the Bored Ape Yacht Club to extremely rare sneaker collaborations, All Gone has documented most of them.
Instead of a 16th anniversary celebration, they teamed up with Bolton-based sportswear giant Reebok and favorite Parisian boutique and sarnie spot Paperboy Paris. The formidable triad produced their own cultural artifact, dubbed the Club C sneakers.
The ultra-limited pair was only available at the All Gone ComplexCon event in a run of 150 units. The shoe’s silhouette is based on the classic Club C models without altering or compromising the defining characteristics of the original design, making it one of the most sought-after sneakers of the year, especially from Reebok.
The lacing system, heel tabs, and toe are crafted in white leather to match the shoe’s predominantly white upper. The timeless elegance and simplicity of the original Club C profile has been preserved. The sneakers feature a white leather upper and a white rubber sole.
The white and pink colors were inspired by the current colors and design of All Gone’s website, as well as the ComplexCon booth. Lined perforations on the vamp and ornate profiles are complemented by ornate stitching.
All Gone’s signature pink hue is featured on the fuzzy inner lining, tongue tags, and solid rubber outsoles.
The tan colored tongues add another layer of color to the sneakers. Tongue tags have “All Gone” branding in white on white and pink on white, also seen on the insoles and window on the side panels. Paperboy Paris branding appears on the heel counters, with the logo prominently displayed. The look is completed with White midsoles and Pink rubber outsoles.
The ALL GONE x Paperboy Paris x Reebok Club C sneakers launched exclusively through All Gone’s ComplexCon booth on Saturday, November 19, 2022. The sneakers will be limited to just 150 units and will be released exclusively in men’s sizes. The Bolton-based sportswear brand had not revealed retail prices for the trainers at the time of writing.
