They are great to look at and homage to the prototypes and original concepts from the classic film. The logos and designs featured on this new shoe reflect logo concepts that were never used in the original release of Alien, and which were all created by the movie’s design team leading up to its 1979 debut.
The Reebok Alien Stomper 40th Anniversary Sneakers ($175) are made from premium aged leather and boast a vintage effect that expertly alludes to a prototype that’s been discovered 40 years later, and the vintage box and certificate provide authenticity.

Fans of the movie will know that we were first introduced to these super cool looking sneakers at the final showdown when protagonist of the movie, Ellen Ripley, brought the alien directly into space with the help of the Exoskeleton Power Loader and her Alien Stompers.

Subtle Design Changes
With the Reebok Alien Stomper 40th Anniversary Sneakers there are a few little design alterations from the originals which make them a more functional pair of footwear for day to day wear.
