Reebok has just announced a new collection of shoes and clothing inspired by Ghostbusters, and it captures the film’s quirky vibe. The collection consists of multiple shirt types, two pairs of sneakers, and even jumpsuits that look like the ones in the movies. The retro collection may not be for everyone, however, especially anyone who doesn’t want to sport faux proton packs.
Reebok says it’s making the thematic gear to honor “the legacy of the historic sci-fi film” and its franchise. Items in the collection, the sportswear company says, will be available to order online on Halloween night. Though it potentially would’ve been cool to drop the shoes earlier. Then people could’ve worn them on Halloween, but there’s always next year.
The two pairs of sneakers, dubbed “Ghost Smashers” and “Classic Leather,” respectively, are definitely the highlights of the collection. The Classic Leather shoes, which are more affordable at $100, essentially look like Reebok Classics, but have a lot of details referencing the film. The Classics, for example, are made of a material that matches the Ghostbusters’ jumpsuits, have Ghostbusters logos on their tongues, and even caution stripes on their heels that read “Ready to Believe You.”
Any mondo ‘busters fans out there with $150 to blow, however, should beeline for the Ghost Smashers. The Ghost Smashers—a name that references the movie’s original title—have hand-drawn “No Ghost” labels on their tongues. They’re designed with a worn look to make them seem like they’re from the ’80s, and, of course, they have “faux OG Pump proton packs” on their heels. The packs are removable, however, for anybody who doesn’t want too much
As for the apparel, Reebok has t-shirts and long-sleeve shirts, which both have some slime on them. The jumpsuit again, however, is the item any die-hard fan would probably go for. Although there are much cheaper ways to celebrate Ghostbusters as well. Some of which will probably make you feel cooler than wearing a pair of Ghost Smashers would.
