Dust Off Your Old Proton Pack Because Reebok Just Dropped a Ghostbusters Collection
By Elaine Selna
The 1984 movie Ghostbusters is a beloved classic that's still referenced in pop culture today, from television shows like Stranger Things to a Frappuccino inspired by the film on the secret menu at Starbucks. Now, Reebok is paying homage to the iconic film and the newest addition to the franchise, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, with a playfully spooky assortment of new sneakers and apparel.
Released on Wednesday, October 13, the Reebok x Ghostbusters collection features sneakers and hoodies based on the 1984 Ghostbusters movie and the upcoming film Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which stars Finn Wolfhard and McKenna Grace alongside the original cast, and hits theaters on Friday, November 19.
There are seven sets of shoes in this collection. The Ghostbusters Zig Kinetica running shoes feature a translucent overlay, so your feet will look almost ghostly. These sneakers are available starting at $85 for kids and $150 for adults, and you can choose from two designs—one shows off the Stay Puff Marshmallow man. There’s also the Ghostbusters Answer IV Men's Basketball shoes for $200 for those who want to show off a new style while shooting hoops. If you want an understated look in your everyday life, the black and yellow Ghostbusters Ecto boots (available for $180) could be great. But if you're looking to leave a lasting impression, the electric pink and green Ghostbusters Instapump Fury shoes (priced from $60 in toddler sizes and $170 for adults) are sure to do so.
There are also two sweatshirts available in the collection for $75 each. The first is the Ghostbusters Muncher sweatshirt, which is pink and features a ghost munching on utility supplies like wrenches, pipes, and nails that form the word "Reebok." The second sweatshirt is black and made of soft fleece, with hidden designs on the collar and in the front pocket.
