Named the Reebok x Eames C collection, the sneakers celebrate the legacy of the 20th-century designers and re-interpret two artworks produced by Ray Eames.
"Known for their ground-breaking furniture creations for Herman Miller and Vitra, the husband-and-wife team redefined post-war American design and shaped the 20th century with their playful yet purposeful sensibility," said Reebok.
"Eames design represents a belief that the objects in our everyday life should enrich our existence and transcend utilitarian function to connect with people on a personal level."
When creating the collection, which contains four designs, designers drew on the classic Club C silhouette, which was originally released in 1985.
The Ray Eames Signature Pack consists of two shoes emblazoned with patterns designed by Ray Eames.
One pair is adorned with a Dot Pattern designed by Ray Eames in 1947, while the other features a reproduction of her Composition painting which was created in 1939.
Each shoe in the collection will be packaged in a shoebox inspired by the iconic Eames House - also known as Case Study House No. 8 in Los Angeles.
In addition to the patterned sneakers, Reebok x Eames will also be releasing a black and white pair called the Reebok x Eames Black & White Club C.
The Reebok x Eames Club C Monotone pack (black and white) will be available online from October 15, This will be followed by a wider global release on 21. The Ray Eames Signature pack is expected to drop later this season.
