Get ready to stomp some Alien heads in coming up on April 26 or as we now can call it ‘Alien Day’. According to THR Reebok will be releasing the Hi-top Alien Stompers worn by Ripley and the mid-tops worn by Bishop (below) to celebrate the geeky day which is connected to the planet LV-426, which is key to Alien lore.
Check out all of the deets:
Reebok is releasing an exact replica of the Alien high-top Stompers worn by Weaver as Ellen Ripley. Also being released is the mid-top version worn by Lance Henrikson as the android Bishop. The movie sneakers will be available beginning April 26 at Reebok.com and select Reebok stores worldwide.
The Stompers hold a unique place in the movies. The shoes were made by the company specifically for the James Cameron film and became, along with Back to the Future’s Nike Air Mag, one of cinema’s famous footwear.
Reebok released the version of the shoe a year after the movie opened, but only for a limited time. The shoes have enjoyed a revival in recent years, with cosplayers making their own versions and while certain shops made their own custom versions.
Most iterations of the shoes were not the high-top model but the mid-top, making the new shoes faithful to what was seen on screen.
Below you can see the mid-tops that Bishop wore in movie as well.
I might have to pick up a pair of the mid tops…just hope I do not get any of that Alien acid blood on my new kicks.
