Reebok has been having a lot of fun – and a lot of financial success – in recent years by creating shoes inspired by those that were seen in James Cameron’s sci-fi action horror classic ALIENS. They allowed fans to buy the types of shoes (“Bug Stompers”) worn by the Ripley and Bishop characters in the film, and also made ones with styles inspired by the Alien Queen and the Power Loader. Now they have announced a new version of the Bug Stompers that have Colonial Marine style camouflage on them.
Stomp aliens in style. These futuristic shoes are inspired by the ones worn in a legendary 1986 science fiction movie. The iconic strap made them easy to slip on and off quickly for quick scene changes. Camouflage graphics and a “Bug Stomper” label give them an authentic vibe. The upper is made of a supple, full-grain leather.
The shoe also features the line “We endanger species” from the logo for the Bug Stomper dropship in the film and the googly eyes that were on the armor worn by the Hudson character.
The U.S.C.M. Bug Stomper Shoes will go on sale through the Reebok website on Saturday, April 25th – just in time for Alien Day on 4/26 – and will be available for the price of £169.95. In USD, that’s somewhere in the range of $215.
