If you’re a fan of the Aliens film franchise, Reebok has something special in store for you.
During this year’s Alien Day, we didn’t just get more information on the upcoming Alien: Covenant film; we also got an announcement from Reebok that they will release the collectible Alien Stomper “Final Battle” collectible sneaker pack.
The two pairs of sneakers are inspired by James Cameron’s Aliens; in particular, the final battle between Ripley and the Xenomorph queen (hence the name). This is one of the most iconic climaxes of any blockbuster in history.
The first pair, the Queen Alien Stomper, draws inspiration from the Xenomorph exoskeleton. It has a toxic green glow, high-sheen black patent leather to resemble the alien’s black slimy wet look, a signature forefoot strap and a translucent midsole.
Parts of the glow in the dark, even though they are blacked out. As a further nod to the hardcore fans, the XX121 printed on the shoes is the initial name of the Xenomorph.
The second pair, the Power Loader, is inspired by the cargo suit Ripley was in when battling the Queen. It features an icy orange outsole, mesh panel overlay and a safety yellow leather upper.
The shoes’ designers, Xavier Jones and Chris Hill, added a mesh to the top of the label; this was influenced by the top of the canopy of the Power Loader.
If the design of the unisex shoes wasn’t enough fan service, the box they come in should blow fans away. Hill spent over 300 hours designing it, and it shows.
The box has icons directly from Aliens, and even the film’s famous line makes it to the box: “Get away from her, you b***h!”.
The shoes will be available from July 18 for $325. If they’ll be anything like last year’s “Alien Stompers” sneakers, they will sell out incredibly fast.
