Returning in 2010 is the Alien Stomper from Reebok, a shoe originally produced for James Cameron’s 1986 sci- fi action film “Aliens.” Throughout the movie, and the series, Lieutenant Ellen Ripley, played by Sigourney Weaver, was seen wearing the sneakers as she took on a terraforming colony of aliens on planetoid LV-426. They may not be guaranteed to help you fight off extraterrestrials as Sigourney did but they sure will add to your level of freshness.
As part of their Fall/Winter Collection Reebok will be releasing two new colorways of the Alien Stomper. You’ll have your choice of Grey/Red or Blue/White, both of which use full-grain leather uppers mixed with perforated leather. The most noticeable feature on the shoe is obviously the large strap across the lace stay which is an original feature for the 1986 model and goes to show you big thick straps are a thing of the past and nothing new to the market. There’s also a smaller strap around the ankle and a icey clear translucent outsole which we believe includes a graphic of a spinal cord on the sole, an element which was used on previous Alien Stomper releases over the years.
No official release date is being posted at this time but thanks to ProviderMag we’re able to give you a look at both colorways expected to release in the near future. The Blue/White model is shown and if you click here you can peep the Grey/Red version.
