Stranger Things is one tonight! While I have been counting down the minutes all day, I have also been buying WAY too many collectibles this week. Funko Pops, shirts, coffee mugs, journals, you name it. But I also am a little bit of a sneaker-fiend. Even I am not sure about these.
Reebok Bait Ex-O-Fit Clean Hi Stranger Things Edition
Worn by the kids on the show, the shoes feature the artistic stylings of Dustin from the show. They really are pushing this “We love Ghostbusters” thing aren’t they? It makes total sense for the age of the kids on the show and the season taking place the fall after the movie releasing in theaters. We already also know that they are Ghostbusters for Halloween.
Here is the catch. There is always one with limited edition shoes. These are only being sold in BAIT shops. For those of you who have no idea what that is: BAIT is a designer shoe and toy shop pretty much only in the west coast, mostly in California. I visited one while at SDCC this year and it was pretty cool. These will drop in store on October 28th, which is this Saturday. There will be an online sale as well, but you have to enter a raffle to be selected to buy the shoes. You can enter that here.
At $140, you really have to be a fan of the show to pick these up. As a giant fan and a sneaker collector, my fate was sealed the second I laid eyes on them. If you don’t live near a shop and are unsuccessful in the raffle, select Reebok affiliates will have these for sale on November 11th.
If you live near a BAIT and have nothing to do Saturday, do let me know.
