When midnight strikes on Oct. 31 and Halloween begins, both the Reebok Ghost Smashers and Ghostbusters Classic Leather Shoes will rise from the dead -- or at least go on sale.
The Ghost Smashers color pattern is inspired by Ecto-1 and other essential ghostbustin' equipment. The slightly battered white high-tops have a Velcro strap, red stripe and even a detachable proton pack. They cost $150 (about £115, AU$ 211) but it seems only come in men's sizes.
The other pair is a little more subtle. Inspired by the beige jumpsuits worn in the film, the reworked Reebok Classics feature a logo on the tongue and little details like a yellow and black stripe echoing the look of the ghost trap, a splash of green slime on the outsole, and a badge based on the name tags worn by Venkman and chums.
The Ghostbusters Classic Leather Shoes cost $100 (£76, about AU$140).
The creepy kicks will have to fill the void until new movie Ghostbusters: Afterlife was delayed from this summer to June 2021.
