Wear Reebok's 'Ghostbusters' sneakers this Halloween, shoo the ghosts away!
Halloween is here. If you are racking your brains to experiment with the best dresses for your spooky costume, do look at the latest Reebok ventures that might give you the best shoes to shoo off any ghost coming at you in flesh or spirit! Yes, shoe brand Reebok has released two Halloween-special designs based on the famous horror-comedy movie Ghostbusters. Find out more.
The two designs are named Ghost Smashers, which is part of their sneakers product line. The other one is the Ghostbuster Classic Leather Shoes. These products will be up on sale from October 31 onwards. This is when Halloween starts in East Coast and Reebok's masterstroke of this strategy may soon see these crazy pairs of shoes flying off the shelves.
If you're a Ghostbusters fan, you'd be aching to know more about the shoes. Let's start with the Ghost Smashers, the sneaker line, which looks right out of the cool gears worn by the ghost-exterminators in the film. The pair is colored on the Ecto-1 hue, the car developed to detect and defeat spirits. Proton packs jut out from the back of the shoes.
With foot straps, they also have red stripes on either sides like Ecto-1. Interestingly, you will find the movie logo on their tongues. Meanwhile, if you like shoe-laces, you should go for the less-fancy Ghostbusters classic shoes. The pair has a beige color, a dark green sock liner and a black leather tab. The right shoe also contains ectoplasm-like green slime splashed on it.
Ghost Smashers sneakers would cost $150, while the leather shoes cost $100. The brand has paid a tribute to the 1984 horror-comedy starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Rick Moranis, and Sigourney Weaver. The film focuses on tech-enabled spirit terminators who contain extraterrestrials and ghosts alike. Considering its highly-anticipated sequel Ghostbusters: Afterlife was delayed to 2021, this is worth the fan service.
