Nearly a year on from their first drop, Reebok has once again partnered with Sony Pictures Consumer Products for a Ghostbusters release. The latest collaboration features footwear and apparel for the whole family in celebration of the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife film.
With the success of the first collection in 2020, the duo is back with an even bigger drop. This includes five sneakers and a mix of apparel. Sneakers draw inspiration from the original film from the 80s, as well as elements from the upcoming film.
The list of sneakers from the Reebok Ghostbusters collection include:
Reebok created the Ecto Boot with a modern take on the Ghostbusters and Reebok OG Pump. The original sneaker was released in the 80s along with the original film itself.
The sneaker is based on a utilitarian boot and incorporates supportive, functional elements. This includes an abrasion-resistant medial side toe and TPU heel cap, neoprene heel collar and speed lacing system.
The Ecto Boot retails for R2,999.
The Zig Kinetica is a mainstay of any Reebok collection. Each of the details added to the sneaker for this drop were designed to emulate the new ghost, Muncher.
As such, the sneaker has a semi-translucent finish, which glows in the dark. Glow in the dark elements are features from the vamp, collar and mono mesh upper.
Muncher’s ravenous metallic appetite is featured throughout the silhouette, including the tongue with a bite taken out of it. Additionally, the sockliner includes various metal snacks and silver hits throughout.
The Zig Kinetica is available at R2,299 for adult sizes. Additionally, kids’ sizes are also available.
Another fan favourite is the Instapump Fury. The design features a “slimed over” aesthetic in pink. It is based on the psycho-reactive slime, which is first seen in Ghostbusters II.
The Instapump Fury features a semi-translucent gel print across the upper. As a result, this creates the appearance of slime while the heel clip provides some extra street cred. It features the text “PROOF OF A GHOSTLY ENCOUNTER.”
The Reebok X Ghostbusters Instapump Fury retails for R2,999. It’s available in adult and kid sizes.
Reebok Ghostbusters Answer IV
For the first time, the Terror Dogs make their way onto a sneaker in the form of the Answer IV.
The sneaker features hidden details across the upper, which also features a mix of materials. This includes nubuck, cracked leather, to name two.
As with the Zig Kinetica and Instapump Fury, the Answer IV also features a glow in the dark outsole, slobber details and red eyelets. Further to this, the red eyelets also represent the dogs’ frightening eyes glowing red.
It retails for R2,999.
Zig Kinetica Kids
Lastly, we have the Zig Kinetica Kids. These are based on the Mini-Pufts, a group of little terrors.
Colours for the sneaker includes the iconic white, red and black theme from the franchise. Additionally, details such as a pack of Mini-Pufts fighting one another are also included.
Some of the Mini-Pufts appear as if they’re melting. The upper also sports a white drip that bleeds onto the caution stripe midsole.
Sizing is available in grade school, preschool and toddler sizing. It retails from R1,199 to R1,399.
The sneakers from the Reebok X Ghostbusters collection include special packaging. These pay homage to characters and details from Ghostbusters films. Lastly, the collection is rounded off with two sweatshirts. The first of these is best paired with the Answer IV, while the second with the Zig Kinetica.
The Reebok X Ghostbusters collection is currently available online at Reebok.co.za and select Reebok stores.
The sneakers will also be available at selected retailers across the country.
