Reebok alien stompers

This year marks the 40th anniversary for Alien, and Fox has been part of the celebration by helping fan filmmakers create short live-action films based on the Alien universe. The funs not over yet since 20th Century Fox and Reebok have teamed up for an upgraded unisex prototype edition of the Alien Stomper sneaker boots.

The 40th Anniversary Alien Stomper takes the 1986 silhouette and gives it a new touch. The updated version features aged leather construction that still captures the vintage ’80s sci-fi look. Check out the classic boots below.

Sigourney Weaver got the chance to give the Alien Stomper sneaker boots a test drive when the pair first appeared in 1986’s Aliens. The 40th Anniversary Alien Stomper has a cream-white colorway with blood-red and anthracite detailing. The shoes have Easter eggs including references to pre-production designs and logos that weren’t used in the final version featured in the film. Another detail includes the rare deviant version of the Weyland-Yutani corporation logo.

To sweeten the pot, the new Alien Stomper will come with a certificate of authenticity, custom dust bag, an official Bug Stomping field guide, and three unique hang tags including an official Alien 40th Anniversary badge. The shoes and the items will be packaged inside a triangular prism-shaped “Space Fleet Box” that captures the look of a retro-future aesthetic if it were designed by a 1979 team creating a 22nd century Reebok box.

The 40th Anniversary Alien Stomper will be available on Alien Day, which is Friday, April 26th. It’ll be available on Reebok.com/us/alien_stomper for $175.

Alien synopsis: In deep space, the crew of the commercial starship Nostromo is awakened from their cryo-sleep capsules halfway through their journey home to investigate a distress call from an alien vessel. The terror begins when the crew encounters a nest of eggs inside the alien ship. An organism from inside an egg leaps out and attaches itself to one of the crew, causing him to fall into a coma.
