At ComplexCon, Long Beach, 2022, Michael Dupouy, author of the legendary book saga “ALL GONE, The Finest of Street Culture”, celebrates 16 years of the iconic work with a photographic retrospective: “ALL GONE, curated archives, 2006-2021”. In honor of the occasion, in collaboration with famed restaurant brand Paperboy, a hyper-limited pair of Reebok’s iconic Reebok Club C ($150) sneaker will be unveiled and made available for purchase on Saturday, November 19, exclusively from ALL GONE’s ComplexCon booth.
Conceived jointly by Michael Dupouy and James Dridi (founder of Paperboy), the Reebok Club C “AGPPB” (All Gone PaPerBoy) is limited to just 150 pairs.
“A legendary model, an icon of sneaker culture in the broadest sense, a product that is for everyone, easy to wear, for all styles, and that has survived all the fashions and trends, Reebok’s Club C is a true ideal of all wardrobes,” commented Dupouy. “So, the idea was to create something simple and honest, to stick to the origins of the product and not change its DNA. And frankly, with Paperboy, we’re just thrilled to bring a bit of French freshness to American soil, to Los Angeles.”
Resolutely clean and vintage, the all-white pair with pale pink accents is reminiscent of ALL GONE’s signature website colors and its all-pink photo retrospective on display at ComplexCon, Long Beach. The elevated design offers an ultra-premium leather upper with ALL GONE and Paperboy logos and logo lockups appearing throughout. Most notably, the ALL GONE logo is embroidered within Club C’s iconic window box in white-on-white, as if it’s just disappeared (akin to the collectors’ products spread across its pages to which the book has paid tribute for 16 years).
This union between three protagonists, ALL GONE, Paperboy, and Reebok is organic, natural, honest, and sincere, resulting in one of the rarest Reebok limited sneaker releases of the year. To purchase, consumers can visit ALL GONE’s ComplexCon experience on Saturday, November 19, booth B35. The launch will take place in the presence of Michael Dupouy and James Dridi, who will be on site chatting with attendees and signing select pairs.
