Reebok and “Ghostbusters” are back again with another collaboration.
The collection features lots of fun references for fans of the movie franchise. While some styles draw inspiration from the original films of the ’80s, other pieces are modeled off the upcoming “Ghostbusters: Afterlife.” This collection will be larger than the first of the partnership, which dropped in October 2020.
The collection includes six styles of shoes available in a range of adult, children and toddler sizing, plus two sweatshirts. Some of the pieces come in specialized packaging that pays homage to characters and details from both new and old “Ghostbusters” films as well as Reebok’s well-known footwear models.
One of the styles, the Ghostbusters Ecto Boots, is a modern take on “Ghostbusters” and Reebok’s OG Pump shoe from the ’80s. The shoe features elements like the scuff-resistant side toe and TPU heel cap, neoprene heel collar and speed lacing system.
Another style, the Zig Kinetica Shoe, features a sleek white silhouette that has a ghostly look to it, and it was designed with the latest film’s new ghost, Muncher, in mind.
The Instapump Fury Shoes, on the other hand, were based on the psycho-reactive slime that is best known for its appearance in “Ghostbusters II.”
The Answer IV Basketball Shoe from this collab marks the first time the Terror Dogs appear on footwear. The shoe also features a glow-in-the-dark outsole, slobber details and red eyelets, which represent the dogs from the film’s glowing red eyes.
Even the tiniest fans can wear the spooky shoes. The Ghostbusters Versa Pump Fury trainers include features like a slip-on style and an animated “Ghostbusters” pump ball on the tongue.
Mini-Pufts, a group of little terrors, covers the outsoles of the Grade School Zig Kinetica Shoes. Outside of the style, these shoes feature a lightweight, responsive Floatride Fuel cushioning.
The Reebok x “Ghostbusters” collection will be available on Reebok’s website exclusively for Reebok Unlocked members beginning Oct. 13. The range will then become globally available two days later on Oct. 15. “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” premieres in theaters on Nov. 19.
