Reebok Alien Stompers
If you hadn’t noticed, everything seems to have a day in the calendar with events such as ‘Jump in a Puddle Day’ an actual thing. Another one you might not heard of but will be thankful it exists is Alien Day. It’s held on the 26th April and the reason you’ll be pleased is because, to celebrate, Reebok will be releasing a real-life Alien Stomper worn by Ripley in Aliens!
Yes, you heard correctly – to celebrate Alien Day, the Reebok Alien Stomper – worn by Sigourney Weaver in the 80s classic Aliens – will be coming back down to planet Earth. And my word do they look the part!
Alien Day is intended to be akin similar to Back to the Future Day and Star Wars’ May the 4th we all love so much. The reason for the date is thanks to the moon known as LV-426, a rock key to the Alien plot.
The Alien Stomper trainer-boots will be an exact replica of the high-top Stompers worn by Ellen Ripley, but Reebok will also being releasing the mid-top itineration worn by Lance Henriksen as the android Bishop.
At the time of the film, Stompers were made by Reebok specifically for James Cameron to be in the film. Along with Back to the Future’s Nike Air Mags, you’d probably argue they’re some of the most famous footwear ever in cinema.
A version of Stomper was released a year after the movie opened, but only for an extremely limited time, and they did get a little too creative in the sellable ones for our liking. The new versions look to be an exact copy, and we’re all about being faithful!
The Reebok Alien Stomper trainers from Aliens will be released on or around the 26th April. No pricing details have been released yet but we do they’re be available at the Reebok Website and hopefully some stores too. We’ll keep you updated!
