The equipment manufacturer Reebok is once again interested in the world of cinema. After a « Minions » collection released in September (articles available on this site), the vector brand takes us back to the 80s with a pack inspired by the legendary film « Ghostbusters » by Sony Pictures.
This collection is composed of 2 pairs of shoes : a Classic Leather and a Ghost Smashers designed especially for this project. The two silhouettes adopt a tribute look but in quite different versions.
The Classic Leather is dressed in beige with laces with matching emblematic side stripes and tongue. The green terry towelling lining and black leather heel add a touch of color. The Reebok logo has been specially modified to match the iconic « ghost hunter » outfit. It appears in red on a black background on the quarter panel. The Ghostbusters logo adorns the tongue and the « Ready to Believe You » replica is written on the heel tab. To complete the tribute, the white midsole is adorned with a yellow and black « danger band » print under the heel and the ends of the laces are embellished with the emergency number to call to report the presence of a ghost.
The Ghost Smashers are reminiscent of the Alien Stomper silhouette created to honor the cult science fiction movie. We find its shape and the strap in the middle of the foot. However, this modified Mid version is made of white leather upper with colored details referring to ghost hunters. We notably find a removable proton tank OG Pump in fluo yellow sticky color on the heel, connected to the quarter panels and the ankle counter by blue or green threads and black pipes. A red stripe, the Ghostbusters logo stamped on the black oversized foam tongue and the black and yellow « danger band » illustration on the midfoot strap complete the look. The Reebok brand appears engraved on the upper strap, alongside the red numbers 3,2,1. The whole is based on a white midsole combined with a black outsole.
To complete this collaboration, textile items were designed. For fans, the authentic beige Ghostbusters jumpsuit will be available with the Reebok logo and long and short-sleeved t-shirts featuring a « Don’t Cross the Streams » print and slime coated Reebok vector logos for the ultimate Ghostbusters effect.
The Ghostbusters x Reebok package will be released for Halloween, October 31, 2020 at on Reebok.com. The Classic Leather will be priced at 100€ and the Ghost Smashers at 150€.
Both pairs will be delivered in vintage 80s Reebok Pump packaging, complete with « Less talk, more busting » and « This is how it ends » replicas.
Another Ghostbusters capsule should be released before the end of this year 2020, stay tuned…
