As we herald from the 80s and 90s here at The Coolector, it goes without saying that Ghostbusters I and II rank highly in our list of favourite films and we’re always on the hunt for ace fashion releases that celebrate the awesomeness of the Bill Murray / Dan Ackroyd movie and we’ve found an absolute belter in the shape of these bonkers but undoubtedly brilliant Reebok Ghostbusters Ghost Smashers Sneakers.
A limited edition release with a reasonable price tag of just $150, these superbly stylish piece of streetwear are going to resonate with fans of Venkman et al and we’re loving their head-turning aesthetic here at the Coolector. The Reebok Ghostbusters Ghost Smashers Sneakers have a fearless design which takes its inspiration from the Ghostbusters movie from the ’80s. The leather upper has a worn, weathered look as if you’ve gone into battle. Signature details from the film give them a legit look.
Show Ghosts Who’s Boss
There is a distinct fearlessness to these awesome looking limited edition sneakers from Reebok and they’ve definitely tapped into the 80s vibes and old school cool of the Ghostbuster movies from the decade. Chock full of cool design features which will certainly set this footwear apart from the competition, these ones won’t be around on the shelves for long given there are so many Ghostbusters aficionados out there – so make sure you move quick.
The Ghostbusters Ghost Smashers Sneakers from Reebok ($150) have a leather upper with a rubber outsole for durability and traction to keep pace with all your day to day adventures – whether this be zapping Slimer et al or heading to the local tap room for a few craft beers. The colour pattern is inspired by Ecto-1 and other essential ghostbustin’ apparatus. The slightly battered white high-tops boast a Velcro strap, red stripe and even a detachable proton pack that adds a pleasing sense of authenticity to proceedings.
Reminiscent of the pair of Reebok Alien sneakers we featured a while back, it was somewhat inevitable that we’d fall hard for this Ghostbuster version here at The Coolector. If you’ve long been holding a torch for the Ghostbuster franchise and been looking for the perfect piece of footwear to celebrate this fact, you can call off the search because you’ve just found it. It is the “Pump” branded green component on the heel, which is attached to the shoe by grey arms and green and blue wires that will be the real show-stopped for sneakerheads out there.
Unbeatable Visual Impact
You’re, quite frankly, unlikely to find a pair of sneakers which delivers a more compelling visual impact than the Ghost Smashers from Reebok. The Reebok logo on the mid-panel section is crossed out in a hazardous tape style, and this is joined by the iconic Ghostbusters logo which 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. For lovers of the 80’s and Ghostbusters in particular, these sneakers need to be added to your line up of footwear in a timely manner.
