After launching their spooky season-inspired hoops collection last week, the Reebok family is continuing with their celebratory footwear initiatives with a brand new Halloween-themed collaboration. In partnership with Sony Pictures, the Boston-based imprint has tapped the Ghostbusters film series to create a new capsule that involves both apparel and footwear pieces. The latter is comprised of two pieces, one being the Classic Leather while the second is the Ghost smasher, a silhouette specially crafted for this project.

There’s no doubt that the Ghost Smashers sneaker is the standout pair from the pack. It takes Reebok’s Alien Stomper silhouette — which was originally made for the Alien films — and turns it into a mid-top sneaker. From there, a “White/True Grey 8/Scarlet” colorway has been added to the leather uppers, with accessories, props, and motifs also dressing the pair. Most notably among all the add-ons is the “Pump” branded green component on the heel, which is attached to the shoe by gray arms and green and blue wires. The Reebok logo on the mid-panel section is crossed out in a hazardous tape style, while the iconic Ghostbusters logo has been added onto the padded tongue.

Reebok has even given the shoes a pre-worn finish that’s most notable on the midsole and outsole and rounds out the vintage look with exposed foam coming out of the top of the tongue. The Reebok x Ghostbusters collection is all set to drop on their site at the stroke of midnight on the 31st of October 2020.

Strap on your proton pack, because Ghostbusters has collaborated with Reebok on two brilliantly apt sneakers. Introducing the Ghost Smashers and a take on the Classic Leather, this Ghostbusters collaboration brings everything you’d expect from the two icons coming together, with plenty of inspirations drawn from the 1980’s film that makes them look like originals. This quintessential collaboration will be available starting the 31st of October.
