Today is Alien Day, and Reebok is marking this momentous occasion once again with some momentously cool sneakers. Behold the Alien Stomper “Final Battle” pack.
The ‘Powerloader’ Alien Stomper, inspired by Ripley’s battle-ready cargo suit, is an impressive work of art. Icy orange outsoles complement the striking ‘safety yellow’ leather upper, while red arrows reference the suit’s hydraulic movement. Debossed ‘PWL’ heel graphics and call-outs clarify the model’s identity, including the P-5000 serial number. As a nod to the canopy that protects Ripley during the final showdown, mesh panels overlay the Reebok logo, while quilting on the tongue and insoles evokes the industrial mechanoid’s upholstery.
The unisex sized shoes will be packaged inside an ornate box that is also dripping with symbolism. Reebok designers immersed themselves in the film’s folklore, combing the Internet for obscure visual references and freeze-framing repeatedly to unlock minute details hidden in the loading dock where the final battle takes place.
The Reebok Alien Stomper ‘Final Battle’ pack will be available in unisex sizing beginning July 18 for $325.
