Reebok's Jurassic Park Sneakers Proves That Life Finds A Way To Stay Fashionable
A collaboration 65 million years in the making.
Shoe scientists were so preoccupied with whether they could engineer Jurassic Park sneakers, that they never bothered to check if they should create them. That tinkering has resulted in a collaboration between Reebok and Amblin Entertainment that celebrates the 1993 film by proving that life finds a way to don some fashionable kicks.
There'll be quite a few of these sneakers available with various price points. At the top of the shoe chain there's the $200 Instapump Fury OG which looks like it was built out of a Jurassic Park touring vehicle and has some tasteful battle damage.
The Jurassic Stomper also costs $200, but it has a more tasteful design inspired by the infield InGen staff uniforms. Then there's the $200 Pump Omni Zone 2 that features a Dilophosaurus theme, complete with carnivorous aesthetics. Sadly, the shoes lack any other flair that can be used to terrify would-be theme park saboteurs.
At $140, the Zig Devil Kinetica also resembles a Jurassic Park SUV, specifically the one used to go much faster than a Tyrannosaurus Rex. If you're into chaos theory and Jeff Goldblum, there's a classic leather option available for $120 and features a "chaotic lateral side" to its design. Finally, $110 and the magic word gets you a Denis Nedry-inspired Club C 85 shoe that features the same floral pattern on it as the first shirt that he wore in the film.
Some of the footwear will be released in packaging that resembles the toy packaging from 1993, while the rest of the shoes will arrive in their own themed boxes when they go on sale on July 30. If shoes aren't your thing, there's plenty of other Jurassic Park-related activities on the horizon. Jurassic World Dominion--the third movie in the Jurassic World franchise--is in development, while park management simulator Jurassic World Evolution 2 will be released later this year on PC and console.
All that and the new VelociCoaster attraction at Universal Studios Orlando's Islands of Adventure theme park that allows you to outrun some very clever girls.
